(Speaking at the Athens press room during an event for the Kurdish Question)
The images of the German Panzer, the Italian helicopters Mangusta, of the Russian S-400 recall our memories of the 20th-century images. Back then the enemy were the Greeks, the Greek bourgeoisie of Ionia, Pontos, Thrace, Asia Minor. The Greek Renaissance had to be murdered.
After this introduction I would like to raise a few questions; the ambassadors can deliver them to their governments.
The questions are addressed to Mr Putin, Gentiloni, Macron, Trump and Mrs Merkel. What do you suggest and implement for a historic indigenous peoples, the Charduchians of Xenophon, on the 21st Century? The immoral genocidal pacts which were agreed with the Kemalists against the Greeks during the 20th century?
A question to the European Commission, Mr Juncker and Mrs Mogherini. As it is well known, I am a bilingual Italiota Greco and will express it in Italian as well:
Dear Mogherini, I think that for states like the Turkish one, all the International Law textbooks stipulate sanctions. The Turkish case is infinitely more brutal than that of the racist South Africa; but even more so overly protected. Years ago Carla del Ponte confessed that the time will come for the turn of the Turkish generals.1
Finally, a question addressed to the Members of the European Parliament. Is the parliament of Europe - in the Greek language Europe means the one with the broad eyes - a domain of athletes defending human values and moral policy or not?2
1Cara Mogherini mi pare che per stati come quello turco tutti i manuali del Diritto Internazionale prevedono sanzioni. Il caso Turco `e enormemente piu` barbaro del caso Sud Africano razzista. Ma altro e tanto enormemente impunito. Anni fa pure Carla del Ponte ha confessato che verr`a la volta dei generali turchi.
2Alla fine una domanda rivolta agli Eurodeputati. Il parlamento del Europa nella lingua Ellenica Europa vuol dire quella con I grandi occhi `e luogo di atleti di difesa dei valori umani e di impegno politico e morale o no?
