We read the following from our mayor.
The recording and promotion of this participation is the goal of the proposal we have submitted to the program of Antonis Tritsis for the creation of a Digital History Museum entitled “Heroes Imprints”, which will host natural and digital exhibits.
The museum in question, which will be located in Paralio Astros, will present the events, the protagonists, the stations and their timeless influences that took place from the end of the 18th century until the founding of the Greek state. “
Museums around the world are built next to historical monuments.
The Acropolis Museum was not built in Piraeus, but next to the Acropolis.
We hope that the common mind will prevail and that the proposed Digital Museum will be located next to the “Sacred Space” of the Second National Assembly. It can be housed in the Zafeiris Foundation, in the Karytsiotis school with the other exhibits or temporarily in another neighboring building.
All over the world such plans become public and public, with public consent. We wish the mayor to publicly submit the plans and proposals for the proposed Digital Museum and to listen to the local communities, who will surely submit their justified proposals.
We believe that the common mind will prevail and the Board. of the municipality will decide with reasons for the unique and normal position of the proposed museum with the proposals of the local community.
Everything must be made public, obvious and in writing.
It is our opinion if we ever build a museum in our municipality, its only location is Karytsioti Square, next to the “Sacred Space” of the Second National Assembly of the Greeks.
Any other choice will be an eternal shame, a great disgrace, a stigma that will never go away.
We publicly ask our mayor and the Board. of the municipality to calmly listen to the local community and decide accordingly. Such decisions require the approval and participation of the local community and we must never decide hastily and secretly.
Otherwise the next municipal authority will finally decide with a program approved by our conspirators. The location of the museum in our place, in a relatively small society, is a big issue and we all have to say our opinion and it is not right, ethical and logical to 2-3 people decide, whoever they are.
We remind you of the Archaeological Museum of Astros.

The mayor and the responsible deputy mayor have been “chewing” them for a long time, we will see, we will wait, mercy now.
We demand from the Board. of our municipality to tell us today publicly, in writing and clearly the truth, about the Archaeological Museum of Astros.
