Over the last year, Atlas Network been successful in restarting a movement in Greece that promotes free markets and individual liberty by identifying, training, and supporting individuals and organizations who promote our shared vision of a free and prosperous society.
However, our efforts have only just begun to turn public opinion away from radical extremes that have dominated political discourse over the past four years. With Nazism and radical collectivism on the rise, Greece’s survival as a free democracy is under threat.
Dr. Tom Palmer, the Executive Vice President for International Programs at the Atlas Network will speak about the critical situation in Greece and the ways to address the problems to restore their freedom. And Alexander Skouras, the Associate Director of Institute Relations, will discuss our current projects in Greece and how you can get involved.
This event is sponsored by Atlas Network Advisory Council Member Nikolaos Monoyios.
