Macedonia name dispute the focus of upcoming lecture at NSW Dimitria Festival


A free lecture titled ‘1992-2022 The unification of Hellenism in Australia for the Greek Macedonian naming dispute‘ will be held on Sunday, November 13 at 5pm at the Pan-Arcadian Federation Club in the Sydney suburb of Ashbury.

The lecture is part of a series of talks organised by the Pan-Macedonian Association of New South Wales for the 2022 Dimitria Festival. This year’s festival celebrates Macedonian culture.

The lecture will be presented in Greek by Dimitrios Kametopoulos and Kostas Vertzayias and will focus on the 30 years since protests were held in Greece in response to the Macedonia name dispute.

Mr Vertzayias giving a lecture earlier this year on the Asia Minor Catastrophe.

Mr Kametopoulos and Mr Vertzayias will shine a light on how the Greek and Australian media recorded the uprising of the Greek people, how the rally was organised, what its outcome was and how it influenced the Macedonian issue in Australia’s political scene at the time.

A number of unknown facts will also be presented during the lecture for the first time. At the end of the event, there will be a Q&A session with the speakers.
