Kathimerini English - - Front Page -

A group of 32 prom­i­nent per­son­al­i­ties from the worlds of the arts and academia ap­pealed yes­ter­day to the coun­try’s politi­cians to set aside self-in­ter­est and chan­nel all their en­er­gies into ex­tract­ing Greece from an un­prece­dented eco­nomic cri­sis. In a doc­u­ment ti­tled “Dare,” the group, which in­cludes artists, writers and com­posers, de­clared that “those who ig­nore the signs of the times in such a provoca­tive fash­ion and in­sist in in­vest­ing in de­struc­tion, with only their own per­sonal and party gain in mind, will be held en­tirely re­spon­si­ble for the coun­try’s col­lapse.” The sig­na­to­ries in­clude poet Kiki Di­moula, com­poser Dion­y­sis Savvopou­los, pain­ter Alekos Fasianos, writer Apos­to­lis Dox­i­adis and aca­demic Nikos Alivizatos.
