To preserve and safeguard the cultural heritage of Greece.

The culture of ancient Greece stands at the historical, artistic, philosophical, scientific, literary and intellectual foundation of the West. Because of this, objects associated with ancient Greece are desired by collectors all over the world. The looting that continues in Greece today in order supply the illegal antiquities market is extensive. We at SAFE feel strongly that the best way to understand objects of Greek history is within their archaeological, architectural and historical contexts, scientifically examined and professionally preserved. We know we are not alone in our desire to save the vast cultural riches of Greece and we urge anyone interested to please join this cause.

This is an initiative of SAFE/Saving Antiquities for Everyone (SAFE), a non-profit organization dedicated to preserving cultural heritage worldwide. http://www.savingantiquities.org

1. An antiquity loses its informative value when torn from its original context without proper scientific excavation.

2. Looting, smuggling, and trading illicit antiquities destroy information about our shared cultural heritage.

3. We promote respect for the laws and treaties that protect cultural heritage and property.

4. We encourage legal and ethical behavior among collectors, dealers, and museums to stop the trade in illicit antiquities.

5. We envision a world in which looting and destruction of ancient sites and the marketing and collecting of undocumented artifacts is unthinkable.
