One more update. The speakers have all been confirmed except for the City of Athens, where a shift in job responsibilities has led to a delay in confirmation. We're hoping to have it tied down by tomorrow. Your faithful admin was a bit tied down today, trying to sort out the mess on the mass-email-exchange. Again.

Here's the panel so far:
Takis Andreas, General Secretary of Population and Social Inclusion, Ministry of the Interior
Vasillios Karydis, Deputy Ombudsman, Department of Human Rights
Moawia Ahmed, President, Greek Forum of Migrants
Martin Baldwin-Edwards, Co-Director, Mediterranean Migration Observatory, Panteion
Theodoros Polyzoides, President, Demokratikoi
TBA, representing the Mayor of Athens on immigration

The Exchange that Got Away (replies to the Reminder bulletin) are posted as one post in a thread of the same name in the "Immigration in Greece" subforum at viewtopic.php?f=108&t=2763

IF anyone wants to comment, carry on the discussion further, Post Reply on that subject line.

Better yet ... show up at the meeting, listen to what the speakers have to say, and share your own observations with them!
