Peasants' Uprising
« on: Tuesday, 06 March, 2018 @ 09:52:57 »
Flashback to the Greek Peasants’ Uprising

The statue of the unknown farmer marks the place in Thessaly, central Greece, when more than a century ago poor farmers started a revolt against the powerful landed gentry and demanded the redistribution of land.

March 6 is the anniversary of the 1910 peasants’ uprising at the small town of Kileler in the prefecture of Larissa.

The anniversary is still celebrated by Greek farmers as a turning point in their struggle against the extended privileges of landowners and the limitation of their own rights.
