  • Description

    OVER 30,000 PEOPLE FROM MANY COUNTRIES TOOK PART IN A PEACE MARCH IN GREECE TODAY (SUNDAY).

    THEY FORMED UP ON A BATTLEFIELD - AT MARATHON, THE PLAIN OF ANCIENT GREECE WHERE GREEKS AND PERSIANS WERE LOCKED IN MORTAL COMBAT OVER 2400 YEARS AGO.

    THIS TIME THE SECURITY AUTHORITIES DID NOT BAN THE MARCH, BUT GREEK PREMIER GEORGE PAPANDREOU DENOUNCED IT AS BEING INSPIRED BY COMMUNISTS. THE MARCHERS CAME FROM ALL OVER GREECE AND FROM BRITAIN, AMERICA, ITALY, WEST GERMANY, DENMARK, AUSTRALIA, CYPRUS, RUMANIA, BELGIUM, BULGARIA, ALGERIA, AND RUSSIA.

    AS THE MARCHERS STREAMED THROUGH VILLAGES ALONG THEIR ROUTE, THEY WERE JOINED BY HUNDREDS MORE SUPPORTED. THEY REACHED ATHENS - 26 MILES (42 KMS) AWAY - LATER TODAY AND DISPERSED AFTER HOLDING A RALLY.
