COMMEMORATIVE SET OF STAMPS “MEMBERS OF THE LAMBRAKIS YOUTH MOVEMENT”
Παρασκευή, 8 Ιουλίου 2016

The First Founding Congress of the Lambrakis Democratic Youth (DNL), which resulted from a merger of the EDA (United Democratic Left) Youth and the Grigoris Lambrakis Democratic Youth Movement (DKNGL) in September 1964, took place in March 1965 in Athens. The Lambrakis movement began with the founding of the DKNGL in June 1963. Its rallying call was “Every youth is a Lambrakis”, a slogan heard first in Thessaloniki and then in Athens during the crucial period from 22nd to 28th May 1963, between Lambrakis’s murder and his funeral in Athens. On 8th June, 17 days after the assassination of Grigoris Lambrakis, the founding declaration of the DKNGL was signed by Mikis Theodorakis, and officials from a broad spectrum of youth organisations, including the EDA Youth, as well as intellectuals and artists. The Declaration called on young Greeks to fight “for the rights of the people, the sacred interests of the homeland, the triumph of democracy and peace” with “the champion of great works, Grigoris Lambrakis, as a symbol”.
