We have collected some 500 signatures by now, 300 local ones and some 200 from the online petition. When we have reached a more impressive score, we will proceed sending our demand for a final solution to the water supply in Kallikratis on to every relevant authority..

And now, for us its back to work!! We have to prepare for a market in Athens, which will be held from 31. September to 3rd October, so we have to get busy bottling oils, cleaning herbs, making soap and shampoo...

The stone is rolling...

Hello there,
Yesterday we formulated and printed out petition lists, demanding an immediate and final solution for the water problem in Kallikratis. Last night, we collected the first 40 signatures from the local villagers, and in Frangokastello 3 people got lists and will collect signatures as well. We will then contact the media, and get the demand to the relevant local, regional, national and even international authorities. Everyone here is positive and sure, that everyone here in Kallikratis, in the related villages of Patsianos, Asfendou, Frangokastello, Kapsodassos, Vouvas and Argoules will sign the petition.
Additionally, we will try to set up a supporters online petitionlist as well, so that friends and visitors to the Sfakia region can sign as well.
So, once again, we are in action and have the hope, that finally something will be done for this village.
Another positive thing is, that the water issue has united the villagers beyond political or family bonds, which in the past have made any common action very difficult...

Thats the news so far...
