Flinders University Department of Languages - Modern Greek
The first intimation that a child of Greek descent in Australia is likely to get about its community’s involvement in politics beyond that internal to the Greek community is the presence of non-Greek non-Orthodox “political personalities” at Greek Orthodox Church services on days special to the Greek ethnos such as 25 March, Greece’s National Day, when officially Greeks celebrate the first stage of their liberation from centuries of Ottoman Turkish occupation.
