Παλλημνιακό Συλλαλητήριο Τετάρτη 29 Απριλίου

"United we stand, divided we fall"

The people of historic Greek Isle Limnos made their stand on Wednesday morning, April 29, 2009. Having put up with more that 20 years of dysfunctional ships that are a lifeline for the Island, they united to have their voice heard by the Greek government that has not done anything to fix this matter. The lack of new vessels has caused hardship for the Limnians and stunned any prospect of tourism.

Limnos is located in Greece in the Northern Aegean. It is best known in history for it's place in the classic tale of "Jason and the Argonauts" and was a main portal in Ancient Greece for ships traveling from Athens to Troy. The ruins of one Europe's first city's dating back over 2000 years is located in "Poliochni", Limnos.

*Poliochni in the east coast of the island was discovered the decade of 1930 and it was the most ancient organized city in Europe. With fortified enclosure, organized community areas, stone-built plazas, streets, wells, central warehouses, Poliochni with an area of 30,000 square meters and about 1600 habitants was a real city model. It even had a parliament, perhaps the first one in the world.
