The event celebrated
The protagonists on the ground for the Kingdom of Greece
“Ochi” Day (No day/ Hμέρα Οχί) is the state celebration for the decision of the authoritarian Prime Minister of the Kingdom of Greece, Ioannis Metaxas, to refuse the ultimatum given to him on behalf of the authoritarian Prime Minister of the Kingdom of Italy, Benito Mussolini, which demanded that the government off Greece permit the entry and occupation of key geographic positions within the territory of its dominion, by the armed forces of the Kingdom of Italy and its Albanian Protectorate.
