Huge sucess: Metopo's "Bring Them Back" demonstration for the Parthenon Sculptures

The grassroots Cypriot Student Movement 'METOPO', in cooperation with Actclick, carried out a very successful demonstration outside the British Museum. Congratulations to the students of Metopo and we hope that more such activities will take place!

The Parthenon Marbles reunification protest outside the British Museum yesterday was well attended – by my counting, there were over fifty people there, despite the rather chilly weather. There was quite a bit of interest from some of the people passing by & I got a chance to meet the organisers of the event. Unfortunately the British Museum limits the duration of such protests to fourty minutes – which has the effect of limiting the impact of them to people passing by during that time period.
