———–

Completing 20 years in Greece and in a while will be 21. Ever since I came, I worked at various jobs.After much effort and above all reading, I learned the Greek language and did my dream come true, which was journalism.

Today I am a journalist in the Greek media.Will be judged by the readers if I’m good at it.

I have two daughters who are now 18.5 and 17.5 years.The eldest daughter came to Greece when she was 5 months old , the youngest one was born in Greece so that makes Greece her home.

I offered  few or many i do not know that , the only sure thing is that I worked very hard and my work was honestly.Authorities were never bothered by me for any reason.I was devoted to my profession and to my struggle  for human rights.I am a board member of the Greek Union for Human Rights. These reflect who i am.

The rise of the Golden Dawn , entering the parliament and the threats that I receive for my life, came to add another fact, equally ugly.

If the rise of the golden dawn makes us worry , what you are going to read  below is destroying my life.

Yesterday, May 17, 2012, the Greek state,informed me that within 30 days,must leave the Greek territory,because the period 2007-2008,which had very serious health problem,I could not gather the required number of stamps to renew my residence permit.

In the same situation as me are the rest of  immigrants.People who have linked their lives with this country,who made their families here, their children were born, studied and raised in Greece.

Times are very tough for everyone,and for some such issues are “luxury”.For some others, however, is a matter of of existence and dignity.

Even if i do not win my stay judicial – once my fierce desire is to obtain the Greek citizenship and continue to offer to this place- I will remain the same philellene, even if i  end up on the edge of the world.

However, this serves us all to see at last,that, the wrong that happen to us many times we cause them ourselves.

I once wrote a text entitled : “Greece I owe you a thank you. “so I repeat today, but this time, full of bitterness: Thank you Greece!
