Η Επέτειος του «ΟΧΙ» μνημονεύει την άρνηση της Ελλάδας στις ιταλικές αξιώσεις που περιείχε το τελεσίγραφο που επιδόθηκε από τον Ιταλό δικτάτορα στον Έλληνα Πρωθυπουργό Ιωάννη Μεταξά την 28η Οκτωβρίου του 1940. Συνέπεια της άρνησης αυτής ήταν η είσοδος της Χώρας στο Β΄ Παγκόσμιο Πόλεμο και η έναρξη του Ελληνοϊταλικού πολέμου του 1940.

Ohi Day commemorates the rejection by Greek Prime Minister Ioannis Metaxas of the ultimatum made by Italian dictator Benito Mussolini on 28 October 1940, the Hellenic counterattack against the invading Italian forces at the mountains of Pindus during the Greco-Italian War, and the Greek Resistance during the Axis occupation.

The team at O Periklis would like to congratulate our member Melina Mallos. Melina was recognised as part of the Greek Orthodox Community of Melbourne and Victoria initiative , Women inspiring change.

Read about Melina's remarkable achievements below, as well as her thoughts on what is needed to progress women's equality and rights in the community.

https://m.facebook.com/story.php?story_fbid=2953493378045241&id=151045561623384

Support Melina in the following forum:
How does new media enable Greek migrants to explore and experience a sense of self and belonging?
If you were born in Greece, are aged 18 – 24 years, and have been living in Melbourne 10 years or less, join Melina and a small group of participants to explore this question together through workshop activities. To learn more, please email: [email protected]

To mark , we have invited 31 women – one for each day of March – to tell us about themselves, their remarkable achievements and what they believe the critical changes are needed to progress women’s equality and rights.

Melina Mallos

Melina Mallos is an educator, author, and researcher.

“I don’t quite fit the typical migration narrative. Both my parents were born in Australia and my brother and I were born in Athens. I was 6 years old when my father decided Australia would be a better choice for his children’s education. Travel to Greece featured prominently throughout my childhood, and with each trip came the questions, ‘Where am I better off? Where do I belong more?’

Happy holidays on Kythera inspired me to write my first children’s book, Catch that Cat! As an early childhood educator, I could see the need to introduce children to Greece from a young age. I worked as an Education Officer at the Queensland Art Gallery/Gallery of Modern Art for 15 years, during which time I was awarded a three-month fellowship to research learning programs at the Smithsonian Institution in Washington D.C. This experience helped me to deliver a successful toddler art program – the first in a State Art Gallery in Australia.

It wasn’t until 2012 that I would re-examine belonging through the experiences of new Greeks who arrived in Brisbane to work in the mining industry (on 457 visas). I noticed their reliance on social media and apps to keep connected with family and friends in Greece. I remember one friend telling me, “I still have coffee with my sister in Athens…it’s just over Skype nowadays”.

New media is transforming the identities we communicate and construct in order to fit in, share or discover who we are becoming. Choosing Melbourne to be my home three years ago was fuelled by a desire to undertake a PhD at the University of Melbourne to explore these ideas from a Greek migrant youth perspective.

In my current role as Education Manager of the Chinese Museum, I see a lot of parallels between the Greek and Chinese diasporas: a deep commitment to preserving our heritage and proudly sharing it with others, the value of family, and giving back to community. The Chinese diaspora has also experienced an influx of Chinese nationals (mostly here for study purposes) and the delicate dance between contemporary and traditional ways of being is interestingly comparable.

The sheer proximity of the Chinese and Greeks in Melbourne’s CBD highlights notions of intercultural dialogue. Last year, I was given the opportunity, through the ERASMUS funded Teaching Mobility Program, to work with the Intercultural Forum at the University of Patras. I demonstrated ways early childhood teachers could use art to promote inclusion in the classroom – a challenge for the largely monocultural Greece encouraged to accommodate new migrant populations.”

The Greek Community of Melbourne congratulates Melina and hopes to create pathways of cooperation between our new Gallery space the Chinese Museum. In addition, we ask that you support Melina in the following forum:

How does new media enable Greek migrants to explore and experience a sense of self and belonging?
If you were born in Greece, are aged 18 – 24 years, and have been living in Melbourne 10 years or less, join me and a small group of participants to explore this question together through workshop activities. To learn more, please email: [email protected]

Q: What does “an equal world is an enabled world” mean to you?
A: “An equal world is an enabled world” is one where people's identities are valued and celebrated. People need to feel a sense of connection and that their lives matter. Without a clear sense of purpose, we drift aimlessly through life. I struggle to comprehend the life of refugees and how disempowered they must feel. The value in creating an informed world lies in education and transparency. We must never stop campaigning for human rights - the right to education, to work and to practise our beliefs - are all essential for an enabled world.

Q: What are the critical changes needed to progress women’s equality and rights?
A: Pushing the boundaries and expectations of ourselves as women. Imagination is what’s needed – looking inside ourselves, and outside our windows to imagine the type of world that we want to live in so we can create it. As a woman who has been free to work and travel abroad alone, says a great deal about how much the Greek migrant woman narrative has evolved. My grandmother and mother didn't have these opportunities. It was a shift in attitudes about equality and rights over many decades that bore these opportunities for me. I want these same opportunities for all women – and education is still the most powerful way to transform women’s lives and empower their independence.

Q: What advice would you give to your younger self?
A: Give yourself permission to shine in your difference – this is something you’ll come to own with age. Never let others' opinions of yourself become your own. Surround yourself with good people whose values resonate with yours. A fellow PhD student from Colombia introduced me to Don Miguel Ruiz’s The Four Agreements and when I remember, they are a great toolkit for navigating life: (1) Be Impeccable with your word (2) Don’t take anything personally (3) Don’t make assumptions; and (4) Always do your best.

Q: Which women inspire you and why?
A: How can I reconcile between all the women who have inspired me? To my academic mentors for always bringing passion and grit to everything they do. Thank you Dr Barbara Piscitelli AM, Professor Nicola Yelland and Dr Kate Coleman for embodying the roles that I aspire to be – nurturing teacher, humble mentor, and arts advocate. The hearts of kind women inspire me – Maria Rerarkis and Alexandra Megas have made my move to Melbourne all the more memorable. However, it would be remiss of me not to cite my yiayia Stella, who lived to 101, as perhaps the strongest female influence. A master chef in the kitchen, Stella’s recipe for life was:
Adore your family
Add kindness by the handful
Mix well with your community
Stir in passion
Season daily with faith; and
Bake with love

25/03/2020

Η 25η Μαρτίου είναι μέρα αργίας που έχει διπλή σημασία για τους Έλληνες. Είναι θρησκευτική και εθνική γιορτή. Είναι θρησκευτική, γιατί γιορτάζουμε τον Ευαγγελισμό της Θεοτόκου και εθνική, γιατί η ημέρα αυτή σηματοδοτεί την έναρξη της ελληνικής επανάστασης ενάντια στην οθωμανική κυριαρχία το 1821.

Με την λέξη Ευαγγελισμός αναφερόμαστε στην χαρμόσυνη είδηση για τον Χριστιανισμό, της επικείμενης γέννησης του Ιησού Χριστού, που δόθηκε από τον αρχάγγελο Γαβριήλ προς την Μαριάμ από την ίδια. Επίσης, με τον ίδιο όρο αναφερόμαστε στην εκκλησιαστική θεομητορική εορτή που τελείται την 25η Μαρτίου προς ανάμνηση του γεγονότος αυτού.

Επίσης, στις 25 Μαρτίου 1821 ξεκίνησε η Ελληνική Επανάσταση ενάντια στην τουρκική σκλαβιά που κρατούσε την Ελλάδα δέσμια για 400 χρόνια. Ήταν η εποχή εκείνη που ωρίμασαν οι συνθήκες και οι καταστάσεις για το ξεσήκωμα του ελληνισμού. Η επανάσταση ξεκίνησε από τα νότια διαμερίσματα του ελλαδικού χώρου επειδή εκεί υπήρχαν πολλοί εμπειροπόλεμοι άνδρες και πλούσια ναυτική δύναμη ώστε να επιτευχθεί ένα δυναμικό χτύπημα από στεριά και θάλασσα.

Χρόνια πολλά Ελλάδα, Χρόνια πολλά Έλληνες!!!
