      Monks of Athos oppose gold-mining in the vicinity of the Holy mountain
      Ierissos, April 18, 2013

      Representatives of Athonite Monasteries have joined the struggle of
      residents of the neighboring town of ierisos against gold-mining in this
      region, reports Sedmitza.ru with references to the Romfea and Amen agencies.

      It was reported by Father Nicodemus on behalf of the Holy Epistasia. He
      also informed that a delegation of Athonite Monks would pass a letter
      from the Holy Epistasia to the prime-minister of Greece Antonis Samaras
      with the request to free two detained local residents who committed an
      arson in the locality of Skuries where the "Greek gold" company was
      planning to do its work. Their actions were recognized as "terrorist and
      political".

      The Holy Epistasia vouches for those arrested because Athonite Monks
      personally know them well.

      In order to attract the public to the issue of gold-mining in the
      vicinity of Ierissos, residents more than once blocked the road leading
      to the Athos.
