Support the Repatriation of the Parthenon Sculptures

This is a message from Vasilis Vasilopoulos Administrator of the Facebook group Repatriation of the Parthenon Marbles

Now that the vision of the New Acropolis Museum has become reality, the pressure towards the British Museum has been mounted. Support our mutual cause,the Reunification of the Parthenon Sculptures by inviting your friends.

Our argument is just, moral. The Parthenon Sculptures are part of a unique monument. They must come back where they belong. They are parts of Greek history. They represent Greek identity. They are synonymous to the values of Democracy and Freedom as the great Greek Lady, famous actress and Minister of Culture, Melina Mercuri once said. Citizens of the world will be in a better place to evaluate both their meaning and their importance in a brilliant museum, the New Acropolis Museum which is next to the sacred rock. A thorough and unique view which respects both the aesthetic criteria of the visitors but most importantly their objective knowledge for Culture.

Our greatest gratitude for your participation. Lets make this cause as GREAT as we can! Lets all of us make our just arguments familiar to the rest of the world. Lets give an end to cultural colonialism.
