US President Barack Obama will be once again honoring the anniversary of Greek Independence day by organizing a celebration ceremony which will be held in the White House on Friday April 4.

In addition to President Obama, Archbishop Demetrios will deliver a speech on behalf of the Greek-American community. On Saturday, New York Mayor, Bill de Blasio will also be honoring Greek Independence Day by organizing the customary gala which will be held in the Gracie Mansion.

Meanwhile, the Hellenic-American community continues celebrations for the Greek Independence Day anniversary. The big Greek parade is to take place on Sunday March 30 at Manhattan’s 5th avenue. The master of ceremony for this year’s celebrations are New York’s senator, Charles Schumer and the new U.S. ambassador to Norway, Giorgos Tsounis.

The Greek Deputy Minister of Foreign Affairs, Kyriakos Gerontopoulos, will represent the Greek government both at the Greek parade and at the festive doxology which will take place at the Cathedral church of the Holy Trinity.

  1. FYI – Censoring leftist thug Anastasios Papapostolou deletes posts of Greeks critical of Greek Reporters behavior.

    The observation is as follows:

    1. Greek Reporter treasonously writes article after article in support of illegal migrants in Greece. It uses manipulative language like ‘undocument migrants” (parroting foreign run ngos and media( Pardon but since when did it become a “human right” to violate a soverign countries border on a mass scale?

    2. GR It claims to be a “News” source but every article is slanted to a leftist point of view (including over the top rants about our government by Andy Dablis of the USA — whose more Irish American more than “Greek”)

    3.. GR rarely if ever writes articles on Skopians not only trying not only to annex 1/3 of country but delete our very identity as Greeks. The cowards have not written even a single article condemning the Skopians apologists.

    4. While leftist thug Mr. Papapostolou deletes the posts of Greeks critical of his brand of Greek “reporting” he has no problem leaving posts by foreign nationalists clearly racist towards Greeks. (including Skopians and their supporters)
