Nicholas Greanias: «Trying to Live a Classical Life in a Modern Age - Ruminations on the impact of Greek and Latin on my life.» As early as i began to understand the beauty and importance of classical Hellenic ideals - an awareness much hastened by the fact that I was the son of recent Greek immigrants to the United States -i became particularly captivated by the classical ideal of the well-rounded individual, and semi-consciously dedicated myself to its modern realization. Alas, that has stood in the way of modern notions of success, and i have often felt myself a misfit. After much formal and informal education, an eight-year stint as a U.S. Army Judge Advocate, a few years practicing law in Chicago, and now 18 years as an American diplomat, along with much sports, music, and theatrical activity, I still find myself wondering what I want to be when I grow up. And this year i have added the Greek Orthodox priesthood to the mix. Meanwhile, my boyhood, university, and Army friends are now approaching the ends of «successful» - often very much so, careers. Is this what the ancient Athenians really meant for me? Page 1

THE TURKISH INVASIONS OF CYPRUS OF JULY AND AUGUST 1974 In the spring of 1974, Cypriot intelligence discovered that EOKA B was planning a coup against President Makarios  which was sponsored by the military junta of Athens. The junta had came to power in a military coup in 1967 which was condemned by the whole of Europe but had the support of the US. In the autumn of 1973 after the 17 November student uprising there had been a further coup in Athens in which the original Greek junta had been replaced by one still more obscurantist headed by the Chief of Military Police, Brigadier Ioannides, though the nominal head of state was General Phaedon Gizikis. On 2 July 1974 Makarios wrote an open letter to President Gizikis complaining bluntly that 'cadres of the Greek military regime support and direct the activities of the 'EOKA B' terrorist organization'. The Greek Government's immediate reply was to order the go-ahead to the conspiracy. On 15 July 1974 sections of the National Guard, led by its Greek officers, overthrew the Government. Makarios narrowly escaped death in the attack. He fled the presidential palace by catching a taxi after escorting a party of school children out of the building and went to Pafos, where the British managed to retrieve him and flew him out of the country in an RAF jet fighter. In the meantime, the EOKA B member Nikos Sampson was declared provisional president of the new government after Glafcos Clerides who was the coupists original candidate declined the offer at the last moment. A top secret letter allegedly signed and sent by Joseph Luns the Secretary General of NATO in July 1974 indicates that America was directly responsible for the coup by EOKA B and for allowing the subsequent Turkish invasion to take place. In it he states; "The Assistant Undersecretary of state Sisco's visit to the Alliance, showed the decision of the American government to finish the Cyprus problem. We agreed with Mr Sisco for supporting the Turkish army during the landing, as well as, in the violent expulsion of Makarios." Turkey invaded Cyprus on July 20, 1974 after unsuccessfully trying to get support from one of the other guarantor forces - Britain. Heavily armed troops landed shortly before dawn at Kyrenia (Girne) on the northern coast. Ankara claimed that it was invoking its right under the Treaty of Guarantee to protect the Turkish Cypriots and guarantee the independence of Cyprus a claim which is still being contested by Greeks and Greek Cypriots. The operation, codenamed 'Operation Atilla', is known in the north as 'the 1974 Peace Operation'. The invading forces landed off the northern coast of the island around Kyrenia. By the time a cease fire was agreed three days later, Turkish troops held 3% of the territory of Cyprus. Five thousand Greek Cypriots had fled their homes. Democracy was restored in Cyprus eight days after the coup against Makarios. By the time the UN Security Council was able to obtain a cease-fire on the 22 July the Turkish forces had only secured a narrow corridor between Kyrenia and Nicosia, which they succeeded in widening during the next few days in violation of the cease-fire. At a conference on 14 August 1974, Turkey demanded from the Cypriot government to accept its plan for a federal state, and population transfer, with 34% of the territory under Turkish Cypriot control. When the Cypriot acting president Clerides asked for 36 to 48 hours in order to consult with Athens and with Greek Cypriot leaders, the Turkish Foreign Minister denied Clerides that opportunity on the grounds that Makarios and others would use it to play for more time. An hour and a half after the conference broke up, the new Turkish attack began. Britain's then foreign secretary and soon to be prime minister James Callaghan, later disclosed that Kissinger "vetoed" at least one British military action to pre-empt the Turkish landing. Turkish troops rapidly occupied even more than was asked for at Geneva. Thirty-six-and a-half per cent of the land came under Turkish occupation. Page 2

My beloved brethrens in Christ, with God s help we reached the month of July, during which our Holy Church celebrates the memory of plenty of popular Saints, as St. Prokopios, St. Marina, Prophet Elias, St. Magdalene, St. Anna,St.Paraskevi,St.Panteleimonandothers. The Saints are the friends of Christ. They followed His example, they loved Him with all their heart and for His sake they loved all the human beings with no exemption. The Saints form the Gospel in action and constitute the proof that the Gospel can be a reality in our lives. Our ChurchcelebratesSaintseverydayinordertoofferuspatu ternsofpeoplewhowereinspiredbythelifeofchristand managed with His help to gain the Kingdom of Heaven. They gave everything for the love of Christ and being flooded by this love they embrace all the people and the Creation. They emptied themselves, as the Fathers of the Church say. That is they forgot their selves, they overcame the egoism as well as the egotism and devoted themselves wholeheartedly to Offer, to Sacrifice to Love. It was then Christ who lived in them. yet not I, but Christ liveth in me (Gal2,20). TheSaintsloveusandtheyarejoyfulwhenweaskthem to help us.

4 I attended a meeting of SAE Youth Network Inaugural Conference held in Wellington on July 27th, as the representative of the Auckland Koinotita. An integrated body of SAE s Oceania & Far East region, the Youth Network is to become the central forum of Hellenic youth in New Zealand the main source of affiliation with fellow Hellenes across the globe. United, the Youth Network will form ideas, proposals and initiatives to reach and further our potential as an assembly of proud Hellenes. With the support of the Hellenic State, this historic event will form the vehicle of congregation of Hellenic youth in NZ, with other regions across Oceania and over time, with the global community of Hellenic Youth. George Angelopoulos-Coordinator, SAE Oceania & Far East and Stella Bares- SAE Oceania & Far East Council Member attended the conference Items that we discussed were mata 1 ) Greek Language - Culture 2) Greek National Issues/Ethnika The- 3) Promote the GR- NZ identity 4) Youth networking structure and Development Youth Generation Communication- Activities 5) Future of GR-NZ Organisation - their role and survival in the future, community issues and the role of GR - NZ Youth - I couldn't vote for the new youth committee of New Zealand as I am OVER 30 years old but I got involved in the elections by counting the votes of the candidates - I discovered an amazing service about UBI World TV. A packet all over New Zealand that people can subscribe for $59.95 per month and have 9 Greek TV channels (including Alpha and Mega Cosmos amazing) and 12 radio channels. I am so keen on this The Greek Wellingtonians say that it is great to have this. For more information please call UBI World TV on There is plenty of information on a couple of activities the youth of Wellington and supposing of New Zealand is organising at: Please have a look. SAE Youth Network Inaugural Conference (July 27th) - The Greek Community of Wellington will republish the "Matia tou Kosmou" - a youth newsletter and I requested if Auckland can write a paragraph there - Ideas for activities for youth participation: baraki, soccer clubs...sports clubs, youth radio, CD library in the hall, book club, facebook and s, the Greek Community hall to be opened once per month as the youth kafeneion, mystery night, sport events competition etc. The SAE Co-ordinator, George Angelopoulos, will send us a programme of activities that the European SAE did and he was impressed and he thinks that these activities would suit better in our region October all the youth committees will attend a conference in Sydney (we do not have anybody but Wellington will represent us) - 31 October-2 November: the SAE meeting in Sydney the Conference in Thessaloniki - 27/28/29 January 2009: Pan Hellenic games, the registration forms will come to us soon as we need to register people to attend the games in Melbourne, it would be fantastic - 7 September (tbc) another SAE meeting in Wellington with the Periferiarhes - George Angelopoulos said that at the moment there are no funds for Greeks to study. This should be something that the representatives of the youth should bring it on the SAE dioikisis. He also mentioned that the biggest hospital in the world has been built by SAE. He also acknowledged that SAE should have more information and involvement for Greeks with disabilities. He mentioned though that his wife works for Laiki Trapeza in Sydney and that every year they donate to SAE he will investigate on this more. He informed us that the Greek Government is interested in trying for us the Greeks abroad to vote. SAE also is looking to have their own money which would be great too. - I am now at the liaison committee between New Zealand and SAE. First of all I would like to thank the Greek Community of Wellington and the Youth Network of Wellington for their great hospitality. Special thanks should go from my heart to Stella, her husband and Chrisanthi. Thanks also to George Angelopoulos for the opportunity to discuss our community challenges and issues regarding the youth.

At times, yes, especially because of the language barrier, which when you are younger is harder to comprehend and understand but I suppose the bond between a parent and child is the same regardless of the culture or place which they come from. Dad has always been just like many of my friend s fathers- loving and supportive, although just a little more tanned Do you feel that coming from the Greek culture has enriched your life in any way? I think that as I have grown up it has added another dimension to the way that I approach who I am and where I stand in the world. Being able to belong to another culture is a huge privilege and opens up many new avenues of possibility and exploration, similarly Greek culture in particular has such a rich history and has added to my interest in many of my university studies. I feel that it has given me another way of looking at many aspects of life; and the food is especially good Do you feel it has been in any way a burden? In some respects feeling torn between two cultures is something which I have had to grapple with- in many ways they are so different to one another that you feel as though you must choose between the two Of course my name is always one which gets mispronounced at school and university, but apart from these things being Greek has become part of who I am and what I stand for. Has learning the Greek language brought you to a closer understanding of the culture and your father? Learning Greek has definitely improved and broadened my understanding of both of these- being able to slowly communicate to Dad in his own language has been amazing; it helps you to feel more involved and active within the culture itself and has been a huge benefit If you have children in the future do you want to introduce them to the language and culture? I certainly will- it is something that is an absolutely amazing ability and skill to have, to be able to understand two such different cultures broadens your understanding of the world, and is something which will definitely be a part of who they are, and something which I wish I had kept up whilst I was younger What about Greeks drives you nuts? They speak too fast Most of the time I don t have a clue what anyone is saying to me because they talk at the speed of light What do you love most about Greeks? I love how generous and giving they are- you should know never to fear Greeks bearing gifts- they are such trustworthy and caring people who are always prepared to help. Also they are very good cooks- that has to rate in number one place Your father is from the magical Santorini. What was your first impression of the island? Dry, dusty and hot It was such a magical trip flying over the island with its clear sparkling blue oceans and rocky cliffs; it is a memory I will never forget. Do you believe the island is the Lost City of Atlantis that Homer wrote about? I do Perhaps a far more modern version of it, but in my opinion the island itself has a quality which is so incomparable to any place I have ever visited before, it has a way of touching you, a certain magic and utopia which certainly reaches back through the ages of time to the idyllic city which Homer once described Saturday 27 September 9.00 to 9.15 am Welcome by Chair Entity 9.15 to am Saving the Paranormal from the Laws of Science Matthew Dentith 10am to 10.45am Critical thinking Greek style Nikos Petousis Page 6

9 NOXICES vpvatwpxy\wy Athens University in top list CHURCH CLEANING We are looking for volunteers to form a roster to assist Pater Nikola by cleaning the church on a regular basis. Please contact either Pater Nikola direct, or speak to Costas Kritos NEOLEA DATABASE We have spoken often about the need to reach out to the young of our community, and to give them reasons to retain their Greek heritage despite the competition that our Hellenic culture gets from all of the other influences of being here in New Zealand. Lucy Anastasiadou Hobbs has been our delegate to the recent SAE meeting in Wellington which focussed, among other things on Greek/New Zealand youth. Nothing is more certain than the fact that to increase the participation of younger people in the community, and to find out what we need to offer them activities that inspire them to hang onto and develop their Hellenic culture, we fist need to know who they are and how to contact them. We ask everyone of the first generation here in New Zealand to contact Costas Kritos and give him the names, contact addresses and phone numbers of your children and grandchildren even if you think he should have that information If one or both of your parents were Greek and you are not currently involved for whatever reason please let us know who you are and how to find you. If you have friends or acquaintances whose children have become separated from their Greek culture, help us create a register of who they are so that we can work on ways of helping them come to value their Hellenic Heritage COMPETITION Lucy came back from her SAE meeting with 3 copies of a special SAE DVD featuring a 32,000 word Greek/English dictionary To win a copy of the dictionary for your computer and a bottle of wine, be one of the first three to enter a correct entry to this competition Answer this multiple choice question correctly: WHAT IS THE CLOSEST FIGURE TO THE COMBINED AGES OF THE COMMITTEE OF THE KOINOTITA? a) 500 years b) 550 years c) 600 years d) 650 years e) 700 years.

A GREEK university finally made the premier league of Europe's top universities, according to the latest Europewide ranking published by the Times Higher Education Supplement. The University of Athens made it on the list of 150 best universities in Europe. It is 106th in the list, which is topped by the universities of Oxford and Cambridge. It is also 248th worldwide, up by 260 places since last year. The list was compiled by the Times Higher-QS World University Rankings. Cannabis growers attack policemen on Crete Police officers search the area with marijuana plants on June 23, a day after three of their colleagues were shot at THREE policemen were injured, one critically, on the evening of June 22, when they were ambushed by gunmen on the island of Crete, police said. The three were part of an operation to arrest marijuana growers in the resort village of Malades, 15km south of Iraklion, Crete's largest city. At 8.30pm, the police patrol was attacked by people armed with assault rifles, most likely AK-47s, police said. The three police officers were taken to a hospital in Irakleio. Gun ownership, regarded as part of traditional Cretan culture, remains widespread on the island despite attempts by police to crack down on it. Cannabis growing is rife in remote mountain villages, and drug gangs frequently open fire on police helicopters or cars patrolling their areas. Last November, a large convoy of policemen was ambushed near the village of Zoniana, leading to a major police operation and dozens of arrests. ATHENS NEWS Ancient theatres: not fit for Rolling Stones O suitably-attired-in-manolo-blahniks is found nowhere in the text of Euripides The foundation stones of world theatre are cracking. We report that modern productions are destroying the ancient open-air theatres where Aeschylus, Sophocles and Euripides developed tragedy, and Aristophanes pioneered comedy. Most of them are in Greece, though colonists spread them around the Mediterranean. Some are 2,500 years old. Their performances have profoundly influenced theatre, literature and culture. But they cannot cope with the stresses imposed by modern audiences. This is odd, for these are not fragile structures. They are vast circular arenas seating many thousands, and constructed of local marble and granite: think of Stonehenge rather than Crystal Palace. They have withstood the stamping of the chorus in the dythiramb, and the bellowing of the protagonist and deuteragonist from behind their masks. The actors wore high-heeled boots called cothurni the better to stamp with. Here Agamemnon's bloody corpse was rolled out on the trolley, and gods and goddesses were swung into view by the crane. Here the maddened Bacchae screamed iambics as they ripped King Pentheus apart. Miscarriages and deaths were reported when the Erynies (Furies) thundered on stage to purge the audience through pity and terror. But none were as destructive of old stones as amplifiers, chewing gum and high heels at modern cultural events. Ancient theatres are built to have perfect acoustics, so they are not suitable for pop concerts. Ushers should confiscate chewing gum. And even fashionistas should be made to put on slippers for the tragedy. The homes of theatre must be preserved for live performance, not shrouded as dead monuments. THE TIMES Page 9
