In ancient Athens, the agora was the central location where citizens gathered to hear news, discuss and, later, trade. The agora was the heart of the city’s political, cultural and spiritual life and it gave birth to the Greek word for speaking in public: ἀγορεύω (agorevo). It is this spirit we hope to channel in this section of the website.

Here, the Agora is a public forum for discussing events that are unfolding in Greece and beyond. Contributors to Macropolis, as well as guest posters, share their views on political, economic and other matters, while also offering readers the opportunity to express their opinions. As always, those who fail to respect the sanctity of this forum will not be allowed to share in its benefits.

Alexis Tsipras was due to deliver his final campaign speech at around 19.30 on Friday, at a rally in front of Parliament in central Athens. In fact, it was closer to 21.30 when he emerged to speak to the relatively small crowd of SYRIZA supporters before Sunday’s European and local elections.
