ATHENS – “Today we remember that democracy, freedom and national pride are never a gift. They are a conquest won by struggling every day,” stated Movement for Change (KINAL) leader Fofi Gennimata, in a statement on Tuesday regarding the 53rd anniversary since the 1967 military coup d’etat that wrested power for seven years.

“April 21 is a day that nobody should forget as the foreign-incited junta put the country in international isolation and led to the tragedy in Cyprus. As time goes by, the memory should remain alive in schools, in families, in parliament and in public speech,” she said.

“The best resistance to fascism are our daily actions. Resistance to racism and xenophobia, resistance, with more democracy,” urged Gennimata.
