25 March – Greek Independence Day

Its an important day for the Greeks today: March 25 is independence day in Greece.

The Greek community in London marked the occasion yesterday after their church services.

Over in the US, Secretary of State John Kerry had a special message for Greeks, and so did President Obama:

Each year, America celebrates Greek Independence Day to strengthen the bonds between the birthplace of democracy and the world’s oldest republic. We recognize the enduring contributions of Greek Americans, woven into the fabric of our national life. And we reflect on the ancient Hellenic principles that inspired our Founders to vest the powers of government in the hands of the people.

Greek Prime Minister Αντώνης Σαμαράς urged Greeks to ‘remain united’:

We only have to look back at recent history to see how many obstacles we have managed to overcome, and we have always emerged stronger as a nation, better as a society, more proud about what we are and more confident about what we can achieve.

So as Greeks all over the world are saying today…

Χρόνια πολλά σ’ όλους!
