Upsurge of anti-chemtrails activity in Athens, Greece
Recent developments in Athens, such as the Syntagma square demonstration of April 29 (video), television coverage, a public meeting in the Kolonos quarter of Athens, the formation of the Attica action group and similar activist groups in other areas, have led to an unprecedented upsurge of public discussion of chemtrails, coinciding with the political deadlock induced by May 6 elections and the huge drop in electoral support for the mainstream centre-right and centre-left parties.
Government agencies have been deluged with telephone calls demanding explanations, and the Hellenic Air Force General Staff responded with an announcement of 7th May. It translates as follows:
- No flights spraying chemical substances are being conducted in Greek air space, with the exception of a small amount of spraying over crops from a very low altitude, which in any case has not yet commenced for the year 2012.
- The white trails that are being observed and are evidently arousing anxiety are comprised of water in the form of drops or microscopic ice crystals and are attributable to condensation of the water vapour that is present in the exhaust of the civil aircraft that fly in the air corridors of our country.
- The condensation of the water vapour in the exhaust gases is a natural phenomenon and is caused by the low temperature of the air at the high altitudes at which these aircraft are flying. The same phenomenon can be observed with automobile exhausts on very cold days. The time at which the condensation trails are visible changes depending on the ambient temperature and humidity at the height at which the aircraft is flying.
- The flight of these aircraft is approved and controlled at all times by the Civil Aviation Authority of our country, and the Hellenic Air Force ensures that no other trails for any other activity will be present in Greek air space.

This press release did not pass entirely unnoticed in the media. Even the journalists of throwaway rags like the Greek version of the Metro newspaper (page 6) were not impressed by the Hellenic Air Force General Staff statement. The reactions continue. Perhaps it would be good for there to be an international response also to Lieutenant Colonel Grapsas’ insult to our intelligence. His e-mail is: firstname.lastname@example.org.
Here is a response from Volos activist Ioanna Myrat:
From Ioanna Myrat
Date: 8th May 2012
To Lieutenant Colonel Constantinos Grapsas
Hellenic Air Force General Staff
Dear Mr. Grapsas,
As I mentioned to you on the telephone, the answer that was given by the Hellenic Air Force does not even begin to address our concerns in relation to the chemical spraying that has been pursued relentlessly in our country in recent years. We recognize that you are carrying out orders and are obliged to answer as you are instructed. It is for this reason that we address to you the request that you forward this e-mail to all your superiors and also to all your colleagues. We think that the time has come to put aside every kind of formal correspondence and stereotyped answer that is given in situations like the present one, of questioning and protest. Take our word for it, the text you provided is hypocritically uniform. It circulates in all languages, as the spraying is being conducted in all the member states of NATO.
The Movement Against Chemical Aerial Spraying in Greece has thousands of supporters of all ages and from all social backgrounds. This seems strange, does it not? This controversial and extremely urgent subject has succeeded in uniting all Greeks behind a single desire: THAT THIS SPRAYING OF OUR COUNTRY SHOULD CEASE! Knowledge and awareness of the subject is for us a priority and a one-way street that can end only with the termination of this activity!
We know very well what is happening. We have assembled abundant documentation, and this has been assisted through our continuous contact with fellow activists abroad. As you understand, the two serious matters that preoccupy us are the subjects of health National Sovereignty. Both have become blank cheques that have been signed over to our ‘sprayers’, because the exact composition of the cocktail that is being sprayed on us remains unknown. We know that it is comprised in part of heavy metals that serve the requirements of the American HAARP super-weapon, but at any moment they could be supplemented by flu viruses to serve the requirements of pharmaceutical companies or even the deadly viruses that have been used from time to time to test biological weapons. Publicity has been accorded recently to tests of this kind that were conducted as long as fifty years ago. http://www.guardian.co.uk/politics/2002/apr/21/uk.medicalscience Now that Η5Ν1 has become a reality, who guarantees the security of a state whose skies are open to invaders spraying materials of unknown composition?
A very small sample of what we are seeing everywhere, from underneath and from above, is this extract from a NASA satellite photo dated 8/5/12, also a day of heavy spraying. The various X patterns in different places and the huge changes of trajectory makes any person wonder….Can you justify all this?
We ask from you immediate collaboration so that we can together ask questions of, and raise objections with, the Defence Ministry. We ask you who are uniformed and under oath to defend our country and its citizens to join forces with us. There are large numbers of us. We have names and addresses, which are genuine, and we do not intend to stop until we have taken our country back, with blue skies, clean air and its sacred earth, which is being ceaselessly attacked with poisons.
