On Sunday, February 5, a lecture on the topic of Struggle for Independence: A look at the pre-revolutionary and revolutionary press, was held in Sydney.

The event was co-organised by the Consulate General of Greece in Sydney and AHEPA NSW Inc.

The speaker of the event was Press Counsellor at the Consulate of Greece in Sydney, Costas Giannakodimos.

Among those present were the Consul General of Greece in Sydney, Ioannis Mallikourtis; the president of AHEPA NSW Inc, Bill Skandalakis; and representatives of local Greek associations.

During his lecture, Mr Giannakodimos referred to the Greek language publications that circulated in the great Western culture centres during the 18th century until the beginning of the Greek Revolution, and to the publications that circulated at the outbreak of the struggle for independence until about 1828.

Mr Giannakodimos underlined the importance of these publications both in terms of the preparation of the liberation struggle and in informing, when possible, the insurgent Greeks about what was happening on the war front.
