'The Crisis Will Not Defeat Us' Greek President Says

Greek President Karolos Papoulias, who on Tuesday attended the military parade in Thessaloniki held as part of the celebrations for the October 28 national holiday (“Ohi Day”), appeared confident that Greece would overcome the crisis in unity and solidarity.
“It was an excellent parade. It was a message that Greece, the Armed Forces, its people, we are all very strong and we are here to prevent any threat. Today is an exceptional day. It is a day of remembrance, of exceptional honour and respect to those who fought in 1940 and overthrew Mussolini’s fascist hordes. They gave Europe a message: that the democratic Europe can prevail and indeed it won," he said after the end of the parade.
