AHEPA condemns attack on Truman statue in central Athens

AHEPA, the American Hellenic Educational Progressive Association (AHEPA), a Greek-American organization located in the US condemned the attack on Harry Truman’s statue in central Athens by left-wing protesters.

AHEPA’s Supreme President Carl R. Hollister in  a statement highlighted that the organization respects and encourages freedom of speech and the rights of individuals to gather and demonstrate peacefully but stated that there are certainly more productive and effective ways to express dissent or opposition than to resort to senseless acts of vandalism.

Hollister praised police efforts to prevent the vandalism of the statue, adding that the association intends to work with city authorities to explore measures to protect the statue “which has quite often been the target of vandals.”
