The Importance of This Year’s Greek Independence Day Parades in USA

by -

“The imminent parades for Greek Independence Day that will be held on the 25th of March throughout the USA constitute a great opportunity for Hellenism in America to promote Greek identity and mentality”, the Coordinator of Council of Hellenes Abroad (SAE) USA Region, Theodoros Spyropoulos told ‘National Herald’.

After the global movement ‘We are all Greek’, in solidarity with Greeks and the current crisis they face, Greek-Americans should promote Hellenic presence abroad through the strengthening of such movements in the USA.

Spyropoulos makes an appeal to all Greek-Americans to come to this year’s Greek Independence Day parades, while he motivates people to raise money that previously was being spent for the parades’ costs in order to support schools and families in Greece, hit by the Greek economic crisis.

“Greek population needs our support. Because actions speak louder than words, let’s focus on actions for Greek people so that we can be a paradigm to the new generation”, Spyropoulos concluded.
