Staged protest in British Museum by Sonia Theodoridou, for the return of Parthenon Marbles


Six Greek women dressed in white togas launched an original protest to draw attention to a Greek issue: the return of Acropolis Marbles to Greece. The group under the lead of renowned soprano Sonia Theodoridou wandered through the corridors and halls of the British Museum in London in search of their “lost sister” – the sculpture of a Caryatid. (Translation Sonia’s fb post)

The eerie silence that surrounded us we entered the museum will remain forever in my mind. The thousands of people who stood there, they were watching in awe making way for us, to walk through. Everyone was in complete silence. The only think one could hear was the “click-click” sound of photographers. And the guards, who at first tried to stop us, then stepped aside and accompanied us throughout the duration of our stay in the museum; some even were saying to Theodore that they are “for” the return of the sculptures to Greece. YESTERDAY, HISTORY WAS MADE. Today, we are waiting all of our friends of London, at St. Sophia in Bayswater at 13.00
