Kathimerini English - - Front Page -

US Pres­i­dent Barack Obama has been de­clared per­sona non grata by the mu­nic­i­pal au­thor­i­ties of Kais­ar­i­ani ahead of his visit to Athens on Novem­ber 15-16. In a state­ment, the mu­nic­i­pal coun­cil said that it stands by those that op­pose the Amer­i­can leader’s visit be­cause it will take place “while the forces of im­pe­ri­al­ism clash in the wider re­gion” and be­cause it will oc­cur “on the eve of the Novem­ber 17, the day mark­ing the pop­u­lar up­ris­ing against the Amer­i­can-spon­sored junta.” The coun­cil also said that it will take part in the marches and ral­lies that are be­ing or­ga­nized to protest the visit.
