Six days to go!

Update from Maria Kasmirli [Cross-post from]

Wednesday was a wonderful, inspiring day!

Pupils, teachers, and parents marched through Heraklion to the City Hall, where they put their case to the city authorities. The Mayor of Heraklion promised to help guarantee our school's future and the Governor of Crete affirmed his support for the school.

Our campaign got a lot of press coverage, and our petition passed 2,000 signatures.

Our campaign received strong endorsement from many leading academics, including Professor Evripides Stefanou (Rector of the University of Crete), Professor Nektarios Tavernarakis (Head of the The Institute of Molecular Biology and Biotechnology (IMBB-ITE), Heraklion), Dr Christos Tsatsanis (Vice Dean of the Medical School, University of Crete), and Dr Eleni Vasilaki President of the Department of Primary Education, University of Crete.

Our case is strong and we certainly making an impression! Let's keep going until we get the Minister's signature too! Maybe today will be the day!
