NO! in honor of all the fights the Greeks and Cretans fought to have a free Country

Every year again since 28 October 1944  the NO parade is walked in every city, town and village in Greece.

Several days before, practices are made,

so that those walking the parade will show the honor that is brought to all who have lost their life in any war, during any occupation or fighting any revolt that has taken place in Greece.

In the cities children, students, the army, firemen, volunteers from the Red Cross and other humanist organizations take part in the parade.  In the small villages the children of the nuresery and primery school are the heroes of the day!
