World-wide pressure on the British Government and the British Museum is growing

New Zealand is playing its part in the world-wide campaign which is building up to reunify the Parthenon (Elgin) Marbles back in Athens. Reunifying the Marble Sculptures at the place from where they were effectively looted will right one of history’s notable injustices.
On 24 May 2007 the Parliament of New Zealand unanimously passed a most significant motion which reads:

"That this House joins its voice to that of other countries throughout the world and urges the British Government to support the return of the Parthenon (Elgin) marbles to Greece, stressing the need for the collections of marbles in different locations to be reunited so the world can see them in their original context in relation to the Temple of Parthenon as an act of respect to one of the most significant monuments of western heritage."
This motion will exhibit to the British Parliament that the Parthenon Marbles issue is very much alive and will continue until the issue is resolved between the British and Greek Governments.
