THE International Organising Committee (Australia) for the Restitution of the Parthenon Marbles founded by Emanuel Comino of Kogarah is launching a website and campaign to encourage the repatriation of the historic marbles to Greece.

The committee celebrates its 31st anniversary this year with lectures and other educational activities.

Mr Comino said with Greece going through difficult times, the need for reconnecting with the values and ideas that helped the country establish itself as a beacon of the modern civilisation was more relevant than ever.

“The marbles remain an integral part of the Parthenon as a monument to the glory of classical Greece and the civilisation it gave to the world,” Mr Comino said.
