International appeal for Greek monuments

Nobel Prize winners ask UNESCO to protect cultural heritage from the effects of the crisis

30 Jul 2014

Three Nobel Prize winners and other high-profile individuals have signed an international petition to pressure UNESCO to use its international clout to protect Greek monuments and cultural artefacts from the effects of the crisis.

The Greek Culture Protection petition is reportedly the brainchild of constitutional lawyer George Kasimatis. Effectively it is an effort to go beyond petitioning the Greek state and appeal to the authority of UNESCO to enforce international treaties for the protection of cultural heritage to which Greece is a signatory.
