Today early morning Greenpeace activists have transformed in a open memorial the Circus Maximus of Rome (Italy) by sinking into the ground two thousand crosses in order to remember the victims of the Chernobyl nuclear disaster on the day of 25th anniversary of the explosion of reactor, occurred on April 26, 1986. "These crosses symbolically remind the victims of Chernobyl - says Salvatore Barbera, leader of Greenpeace's Italy nuclear campaign - What we learned from the incident is that the nuclear energy is too dangerous to have a future".

Well, Italian Prime Minister Silvio Berlusconi doesn't agree.
The Italian people is called to express their own preference about nuclear power by a referendun scheduled on next June and requesting the abolition of the plan to build 18 new nuclear power plans in Italy. But the Italian government is trying to erase this important event by changing the mentioned law. Actually, the Italian government is not changing his mind about building these nuclear plans: it's only a trick.

As the Prime Minister himself said: "The moratorium of these days comes from the surveys revealing the Italian fear post Fukushima, but in a few years we re-present the project to the public opinion." So the Prime Minister Berlusconi spoke during a press conference with French Prime Minister Nicolas Sarkozy. :-(

I wish to express solidarity with the American people for the tragedy that the Southern states are experiencing because of the nature anger. More than 300 deaths caused by the huge tornado beating down on Alabama, Arkansas, Georgia, Kentucky, Mississipi, Missouri, Tennessee, Oklahoma (in the videos below, the damages created by the tornado).

М. Плисецкая: "Пожалуй, Плющенко похож на Годунова. Тоже высокий, статный, эффектный, уверен в себе. Да и эти длинные развевающиеся на ветру и в пируэтах белые волосы. Такой же тип. И темперамент у него есть, и артистизм."

HI, HI Darina!!!! :plush39: :plush39:
I am very glad you liked Loukas!! :a_g_a: :plush45:
This year was very emotional for us Greeks because there is great economic and political turmoil in our country and this song says exactly that: "even if I fall down, I will rise again".
I am sure our Russian friends can understand about socioeconomic difficulty...
Anyway, he has a BIG, BIG voice doesn't he?
THANKS DARINA!!! plush48
