A few years ago, some other mayors of our beautiful and inhuman city, when they had foreign officials at the City Hall, gave them the Golden Key of the City. And then, satirically or not, the press wrote: “With so many golden keys, Athens will become a golden prostitute!”
And then came the last elections, then the pandemic, and Athens today went to the sidewalk! .. Have you tried to walk on its sidewalks? All occupied with tables of cafes, bars, restaurants, small shops and department stores. And where there are no banks, sidewalks with holes, potholes, traps, are ready to send directly to the KAT.
A few days ago, in a process of an online report, I heard our mayor, who first stated that he is not the mayor of Athens, but of the Athenians, talking to a SKAI journalist about his mayoral visions, saying: “The palm trees will leave and the plane trees will enter.”
Where; In the Constitution and in the University. “The trees have been cut for years and now a class is coming in!”
No, Mr. Mayor. The centers were pruned every year at the right time. The last two years have been left unattended and pedestrians are being traded for walking on the sidewalks. A walk if you do, not in remote areas of Athens, but in Irodou Attikou, at ave. King Constantine, you will see the truth of your words.
Mr. Mayor of Athens, ask Athens. Fall in love with her with passion! Maybe this is the only way you can help her. Only love for the partner, the lover, the child, the profession, the city where he can help save her. Athens wants a savior! She wants a mayor with political guts, who will not be afraid to change the hereditary sins that weigh on her.
Our beautiful city is a dirty city! It is not saved by the plane trees, the palm trees and the Great Walks. Daily cleaning first of all wants the city. Water and bleach. Let the smells of animals and people leave its corners and walls.
A city where 2/3 of its inhabitants are not native Athenians, it is natural not to be loved by them. Show them how to love and care for her. Breathe in the historic center of Athens, not with walks and plane trees, but with a ban on all cars!
Yes, it has a cost… political! But it will put your stamp on the political culture! It is smaller in the historic center of the city. Let’s not kill it.
And finally, if you want Great Walks, make them on the main boulevards that go to the sea… Syggrou… Piraeus…
“TURN” the City facing the sea!
Do it like Barcelona!
In the announcement of the Municipality of Athens you mention that: “The major interventions are piloted and then the permanent ones ακολου”.
Yes, but the big and brave interventions today are being piloted on computers! Simulations and artificial intelligence will show if you need to proceed with permanent surgery. Thus, you will have images of the future of the city without financial cost and soul-destroying of the life of its inhabitants.
Otherwise, we will see messages like this on the walls of Athens: “Mayor, how far is the palm tree?”
