YOUR WORDS. YOUR VOICE. Here’s what our readers on Facebook thought about: Greek Prime Minister anticipated to visit Australia in 2020 john pandazopoulos We should use the opportunity for an Australia - Greece dialogue. It could be the pathway to resolving a few outstanding issues between both countries - double tax agreement, bilateral health care agreement as exist with other EU countries, recognition of Australian drivers licence without the need for an International one, investments by Australian super and property funds into the emerging Greece property market etc Angelo Dritsas They’ll be talking about data sharing between tax agencies! Nicky Kostakos Karavelas Να πάρουν ψήφους και οι δυό γιαυτό!!!!! (So that they can both get votes, that’s why!!!!!) Argiroula Zifou-Homa Τι ωραία χαμόγελα. Σαν να γνωρίζονταν και από χθες. (What nice smiles. As though they’ve known each other for years.) The Lemnian Community celebrating Father’s Day. Members of the Lemnian Ladies Committee. Tony Helen Dem Όταν συνομιλούν σοβαρά δεν καθωνται διπλοποδη κ προθυπουργε τόσο πια ασέβεια ούτε τα ουσιοδη δεν γνωρίζετε; (When you have a serious discussion, you do not sit with your legs crossed Mr Prime Minister, so disrespectful, you don’t even know the essentials?) Joy Ellinida και τι ακριβως εχετε να σηζητησετε...... για το πως και οι 2σας πινετε το μεδουλι των ομογενων? (And what exactly do you have to discuss... about how you both drink from the honeycomb (exploit) of the Greeks.) Dimosthenis Manasis Levendis!! Who said our Greek Australian children can't dance? Argiroula Zifou-Homa Και χορεύουν και το ευχαριστιουνται! (And they dance and they enjoy it!) Delicious homemade Lemnian sweets. PHOTOS: SUPPLIED Manasis dancers showcase the regions of Greece On Saturday, 21 September, the Nafpaktian Hall came alive with the sounds of klarina, daoulia and the famous goat-head gaida bagpipes. Manasis School of Greek Dance and Culture hosted the first of its annual Dinner Dances for the year. Senior dancers hit the floor in traditional dress, and impressed attendees with their routines from various regions of Greece, showing the country's cultural richness. Among the dances per- formed were their signature routines The Evolution Bracket and New Modern Bracket. DJ Chris (Original Vibes) was on the decks, along with the Manasis Band performing live together with other guest musicians. The second dinner dance is taking place on Saturday 5 October. Zissos Mermingas The Greeks here can dance way better then the Greeks back home. Stratos Kathiotis 1% can dance ... they don’t teach the kids Greek this generation of Greek kids is gone. Let's not create conflict where there is none (Letter responding to NK article about Archbishop Makarios' presence at Anti-Abortion Rally) PHOTOS: KOSTAS DEVES Nick Rodintsis Abortion is a difficult issue for many people. Regardless of one’s views, the author of this article is VERY wrong about the following: “Unfortunately, the majority of the lower house staunchly protested against the proposal of collecting data relating to abortions in NSW.” The state must NEVER collect data about whether women have had an abortion or not! It’s not the business of the government! The author is very naive to advocate the govt collect such information. Vivienne Gunn Lost me at “all left-leaning, liberal journalists...”.
