Comentários da Jornada:

O Sporting fora de casa continua a demonstrar grande fragilidade e voltou a ceder pontos na deslocação ao Estádio do Mar onde só perto do fim evitou a derrota.

O Benfica também perto do final do jogo garantiu o triunfo em Coimbra, mantendo as esperanças nos seus adeptos, em função do resultado que não da exibição que foi fraca. Pelo contrário, o Porto venceu e convenceu no Estádio do Dragão infligindo a primeira derrota ao Vitória de Setúbal que se pensava ser capaz de colocar mais forte oposição à equipa portista.

O destaque da jornada, para além do empate do Sporting, vai para o triunfo forasteiro da Naval na Madeira frente ao Marítimo, dando um salto na classificação e vendo os últimos lugares já bem longe. O Paços de Ferreira contabilizou a segunda vitória ao derrotar o Nacional com um golo tangencial enquanto União de Leiria- Braga, no início da jornada, sexta-feira e Belenenses-Estrela da Amadora em jogo acabado há poucos minutos, não marcaram qualquer golo, em dois empates a zero, que pouco acrescentam às aspirações das equipas. A equipa leiriense continua sem ganhar e desta vez até falhou um penalty por João Paulo (defesa do guarda-redes Paulo Santos).

Amanhã a jornada termina com um jogo que tem sempre bastante interesse face à grande rivalidade entre Boavista e Guimarães. O Boavista só ganhando largará os lugares de despromoção (quem diria?) e o Vitória precisa de pontuar para manter o terceiro lugar (também quem diria de uma equipa vinda da Liga de Honra?).

Na próxima jornada, com jogos europeus pelo meio, o Benfica recebe a visita do Porto. As duas equipas são as únicas que ainda não perderam e são as duas que mais golos marcaram (22 o Benfica e 20 o Porto) e as duas que menos golos sofreram (4 o Porto e 6 o Benfica). Por tudo isto e a diferença de 4 pontos favorável ao Porto este é um jogo de grande importancia para o andamento do Campeonato.

O Sporting recebe a União de Leiria e nos outros jogos adivinham-se confrontos bastante equilibrados com os «reis» dos empates a encontrarem-se na Reboleira (Estrela da Amadora-Leixões).

Support the Repatriation of the Parthenon Marbles – Γιά τα Μάρμαρα του Παρθενώνα

Filed under: Cultural — looking4good @ 10:30 pm

Dear members of WUB, dear readers, by the opportunity of December 5th (Pathenon Day) you can contribute to the efforts for the repatriation of the Parthenon Marbles in Greece. Please, copy the following text-letter and send it, through email, to the administration of the British Museum, to the British and Greek Ministries of Culture as well as to the E.U. Commissioner for Culture:

– British Museum: communications@britishmuseum.org
EU Commission for Culture: eac-culture@ec.europa.eu
– Ministry of Culture, United Kingdom:
enquiries@culture.gov.uk
– Ministry of Culture, Greece:
dpse@hch.culture.gr

Αγαπητέ κύριε/κυρία,
“Πρέπει να καταλάβετε τι σημαίνουν για μας τα μάρμαρα του Παρθενώνα.. Είναι η υπερηφάνεια μας, είναι οι θυσίες μας. Είναι το ευγενέστερο σύμβολο τελειότητας. Είναι φόρος τιμής στη δημοκρατική φιλοσοφία. Είναι οι φιλοδοξίες μας και το ίδιο τ΄όνομα μας. Είναι η ουσία της ελληνικότητας”.
Μελίνα Μερκούρη, ομιλία στην Όξφορντ Γιούνιον, 1986.

Τα αρχαία γλυπτά του Παρθενώνα, που σήμερα εκτίθενται στο Βρετανικό Μουσείο, δεν είναι αυτοτελή έργα. Είναι αναπόσπαστα εκ γενετής στοιχεία του Μνημείου του Παρθενώνα, του μείζονος και συμβολικού μνημείου του δυτικού πολιτισμού. Ορισμένα δε από τα στοιχεία αυτά είναι αναγκαία όχι μόνο για την αισθητική, αλλά και για την στατική επάρκεια του Μνημείου, όπως δείχνουν οι πρόσφατες εργασίες αναστήλωσης
της Ακρόπολης.

Από τη δεκαετία του ’80, όταν η τότε υπουργός πολιτισμού της Ελλάδας Μελίνα Μερκούρη είχε ξεκινήσει τον αγώνα υπέρ της επιστροφής των γλυπτών, οι διοικήσεις του Βρετανικού Μουσείου αρνούνται πεισματικά το διάλογο. Υπάρχουν όμως επιχειρήματα που επιβάλλουν την επιστροφή των Μαρμάρων στην πατρώα γή τους:
πρώτον, διότι στην Ελλάδα τα Μάρμαρα θα εκτεθούν κοντά στον Παρθενώνα και σε οπτική επαφή αυτόν έτσι ώστε ο επισκέπτης να σχηματίζει πλήρη εικόνα του συνόλου του Μνημείου,
δεύτερον, διότι αποτελούν αναπόσπαστο τμήμα του μνημείου – συμβόλου του ελληνικού κλασικού πολιτισμού την στιγμή της ακμής του. Με την επιστροφή των Μαρμάρων θα αποκατασταθεί η ενότητα της διακόσμησης και η αρχιτεκτονική συνοχή του Μνημείου,
τρίτον, διότι το Νέο Μουσείο Ακροπόλεως είναι πλέον έτοιμο να φιλοξενήσει τα γλυπτά με την ίδια και μεγαλύτερη ασφάλεια απ’ ότι φιλοξενούνται στο Λονδίνο,

Η Βρετανία, την εποχή του λόρδου Έλγιν ήταν μια μεγάλη Αυτοκρατορία και η Ελλάδα μια υπόδουλη στην Οθωμανική Αυτοκρατορία επικράτεια. Σήμερα, 200 χρόνια μετά, οι δύο χώρες είναι δύο ανεπτυγμένες δημοκρατίες, συνεργαζόμενες στο πλαίσιο της Ευρωπαϊκής Ένωσης. Τα πράγματα και οι συνθήκες έχουν αλλάξει. Στο όνομα της δικαιοσύνης, της ηθικής και της εκτίμησης απέναντι στην παγκόσμια πολιτιστική κληρονομιά, καλούμε τη Βρετανική κυβέρνηση και τη διοίκηση του Βρετανικού Μουσείου, να εργαστούν προς την κατεύθυνση της επιστροφής των Μαρμάρων του Παρθενώνα στην Ελλάδα, τιμώντας το όνομα και την ιστορία του Ηνωμένου Βασιλείου.

Με εκτίμηση,

Το όνομα σας, διεύθυνση του ιστολογίου σας

Dear Sir/Madam,
“You must understand what the Parthenon Marbles mean to us. They are our pride. They are our sacrifices. They are our noblest symbol of excellence. They are a tribute to the democratic philosophy. They are our aspirations and our name . They are the essence of Greekness”. Melina Mercouri, speech in Oxford Union, 1986.

The ancient sculptures of Parthenon, which today are exposed in London’s British Museum, consist an important part of the Athens Parthenon; a major and symbolic landmark of the Western civilization. Moreover, some of the sculptures themselves are essential not only for the external appearance, but also for the static suffiency of the ancient building, according to recent restoration works on the Acropolis.

Since the decade of 1980s, when the then Greek Minister of Culture Melina Mercouri had demonstrated the demand for the repatriation of the marbles, the various administrations of the British Museum continue to deny any proposal for dialogue on this matter. Nevertheless, there are specific arguments which enpower the support for the restoration of the Parthenon Marbles back in Greece:
first, because in Greece the sculptures will be exposed near the Parthenon facing the Acropolis and therefore giving to the visitor the opportunity to have a more concrete idea of the whole ancient monument,
second, because the Parthenon Marbles consist an integral part of the monument-landmark of the Greek classical civilization. The repatriation of the marbles would support the idea of Parthenon’s complete design and its architecture will be restored,
third, because the New Acropolis Museum is now complete – and therefore the Parthenon Marbles could be exposed and presented there, with equal and even bigger safety than in the British Museum.

During the ages of Lord Elgin, Britain was a world imperial power and Greece just a part of the then Ottoman Empire. Today, 200 years later, the two countries are two developed democratic European Union members, having co-operation in most fields. There has been a big change since then. In the name of Justice and Morality, in the name of appreciation for the world cultural heritage, we call the British government and the administration of the British Museum to work towards the restoration of the Parthenon Marbles. Such an action would, indeed, honour the name and history of the United Kingdom

Sincerely,

Your name, your blog’s address
