Title: The forgotten uprising
Post by: Maik on Tuesday, 12 March, 2019 @ 13:03:54
75-year anniversary of the uprising nobody wants to know about

75 years ago thousands of starving Greek soldiers and sailors in the allied-controlled Mediterranean were attacked and then imprisoned in isolated desert camps in Africa when they peacefully protested to their own government-in-exile. A new political system for post-war Greece was their aspiration. The Greek government and king with willing British involvement ended these liberal aspirations.
