Keratea, south east of Athens, has been “chosen” as the site for the new landfill of Attica.

The inhabitants oppose this arbitrary decision and a “silent” war has started between special forces and the citizens of the small town.
This weekend the people of Keratea staged a three day Resistance Festival. A playground and puppet show for the kids, a central stage for poetry readings, theatre performances and singing. All around handmade posters and various artifacts inspired by the resistance of the people of Keratea. Mikis Theodorakis, the famous composer, visited the Festival on Saturday while the resistance veteran Manolis Glezos addressed the Festival participants this afternoon.

I will give you more information on the story tomorrow. Today watch the video of the area to see why it was proclaimed an area of great natural beauty – proclaimed by a Greek government that is, officially and legally.
