Abstract

The Echo of Cyprus 1821-2021, in collaboration with important national, social and cultural institutions, organises a series of events, lectures and conferences to highlight the bicentenary of the national regeneration. The purpose of the lectures is to highlight the contribution of Cyprus to the struggle, as an integral part of Hellenism, as well as to highlight the bicentenary of the 1821 Revolution, as an occasion for national reconstruction and redefining of our course and our historical continuity, as well as paying tribute to those who shed their blood on the altar of the freedom of the nation. The event draws a parallel between the Greek revolution and the struggle of the Cypriot fighters as the heroes of the Greek Revolution, the folk songs and the Greek poetry clearly influenced the struggle of the Cypriots. Finally, reference is made to the illegal press (announcements and publications of EOKA magazines), with historical examples of the Greek revolution that aimed to mobilise the fighters.
