50 YEARS SINCE THE POLYTECHNEIO UPRISING
FOR FREEDOM AND DEMOCRACY,
Open Network: Call for Participation
We are neither the protagonists,
nor the spokespersons of the November 1973 Polytechneio uprising,
nor the “Polytechneio 1973 generation”
We are a section of those who participated in the 1973 Polytechnic uprising and we appeal to all those who participated then to co-sign the text of the identity. And most importantly: to co-organize and participate in all actions and activities for the 50th anniversary of the uprising.
THIS IS POLYTECHNEIO!

The purpose of this website
In the first phase, the Open Network, through its editorial team, opens the identity and signature text with a call for participation. A systematic effort is being made to collect and record, both published and original material, focusing on the events that marked the youth uprising in November 1973. This multidimensional material consists of: chronicles, opinions, written & oral testimonies, combined with a thorough record of bibliography, studies, research & press publications, as well as a collection of photographic & audio-visual material.
Our perspective is that in the near future it will be formed into a rich digital archive, open to participation and accessible to all. We want to offer the appropriate material so that readers can form their own judgment as to what the Polytechnic of ’73 was, and what legacy it left to future generations.
Just as we do not forget the 24 confirmed dead of the Polytechnic uprising, so we do not want to completely forget the people we met in the days of the anti-dictatorship struggle and who passed away after the Polytechnic in times of peace and parliamentary democracy.
We invite the old comrades, but also the younger friends of our initiative, to co-shape the website by sending opinions, testimonies, photos, proofs, and additions to already posted texts. And we thank those who have already offered us valuable material from their personal archives.
