CIVIC RESPONSIBILITY

Maloney Introduces Parthenon
Marbles Resolution

Rep. Maloney speaks at AHEPA Family's Capitol Hill Day.

Congressional Caucus on Hellenic Issues Co-chair U.S. Rep. Carolyn
Maloney (D-NY) introduced a resolution expressing the sense of Congress
that the Parthenon Marbles should be returned to Greece, Sept. 26, 2016.
Her caucus co-chair, U.S. Rep. Gus Bilirakis (R-FL), and caucus member
U.S. Rep. Donald Payne, Jr. (D-NJ), are original co-sponsors of the resolution, titled H.Con.Res.162.
"The Parthenon marbles are some of Greece's greatest examples of
artistic expression and beauty, and should be on display in their country
of origin," said Rep. Maloney in her statement. They are vital pieces of
Greek history that belong to the Greek people. The people of Greece as
well as the visitors who travel from all around the world to experience
the magnificence of the Acropolis should be able to enjoy the Marbles.
This resolution calls upon Great Britain to finally return these treasures
to their rightful home.
"Art provides a window into history and its expression is liberty," said
Rep. Bilirakis in his statement. The Parthenon Marbles were made by the
citizens of Athens under the direction of renowned artist Phidias to celebrate the pride and majesty of the City of Athens. To not house and view
these citizen contributions in the city they were originally intended does
a disservice not only to the people of Athens, but also to the civilization
that paved the path for modern democracy and freedom. I sincerely hope
to see these original works and other important elements of Hellenic
history finally returned to their rightful owner for future generations of
proud Greeks to enjoy.
"The Parthenon Marbles are a national symbol and source of pride for
Greece," said Congressman Payne, Jr. "These sculptures were taken from
Greece, and that is where they belong. Great Britain should do the right
thing and reunify the Parthenon temple's treasures in their homeland."

Congressman Sarbanes Attends
District 3 Meeting
Supreme President Andrew C. Zachariades made a visitation to Capital District
3, meeting with the Order's three Baltimore-area chapters, 30, 364, and 516,
Oct. 17. There, U.S. Rep. John Sarbanes (D-MD), an Ahepan, attended and spoke
glowingly about AHEPA's community service work. District 3 Governor William
Bond organized the event. Executive Director Basil Mossaidis accompanied the
supreme president.
