Bring Them Back

The time has come…

The campaign is named “BRING THEM BACK!” and its history starts 209 years after 1801, when Lord Elgin decided to vandalize the Acropolis of Athens. The journey of “BRING THEM BACK!” starts in Athens, at the new Acropolis Museum and the Parthenon in order to spread all around the word… With just one click!

A goal of  “BRING THEM BACK!” is to sensitize and inform people, no matter what their country, continent and nationality is, about the history of one of the greatest World Heritage Monuments. 

A goal of  “BRING THEM BACK!” is the parallel promotion of all the Committees, entities and efforts, having contributed so far to the return or reunification of the Parthenon Marbles in Greece.   

A goal of  “BRING THEM BACK!” is to unite and not to divide. 

A goal of  “BRING THEM BACK!” are the collective efforts until the 31st December 2010 in order to collect the largest number of signatures by citizens all around the world, sending their own loud message “BRING THEM BACK!” and state their own cultural values in the 21st century. 

A goal of  “BRING THEM BACK!” is the official delivery of the evidence to the Greek Ministry of Culture and the representatives of the New Acropolis Museum as well as to the administration of the British Museum. Our ultimate goal from this moment on is perhaps the idea of collecting 1.000.000 personal signatures and the discussion around the matter of the petition, set in the European Parliament. The goal of this discussion is to put stress on  the matter of the return of the Marbles on an international level. 

A goal of  “BRING THEM BACK!” is to manage to unite my cultural voice with your cultural voice.

The “BRING THEM BACK!” campaign has already set off from the vernal Athens, having as destination each corner of the world, with enthusiasm!
