Day on the Immigrants
Greeting by George A. Papandreou at the event on the Day on the Immigrants
"A nice day today, that we’re altogether, here by so many different communities of the immigrants and we can celebrate together these festive days.
I would like to speak about the richness our country has, how much richness and love our country receives from all the immigrants that have come, from the drawings, from the outfits, from the music’s, from the nice foods, from the lovely voices and all these colors. At this demonstrates how beautiful our society can be, a society that accepts everyone on equal terms and promotes the equal participation of all in the daily life.
I thank Yvet Charvis, I thank MariHelela Koppa and all who have, in one way or the other contributed to the organization of the present day, especially the immigrants’ communities and you that sung so lovely.
Wish you Happy New Year."
