Platon Drakoulis

Platon Drakoulis (Greek: Πλάτων Δρακούλης, Ithaca, 1858 – United Kingdom, 1932 or 1934 or 1942) was a Greek socialist politician. Drakoulis, once a lecturer at Oxford University, was one of the pioneers of the socialist labour movement in Greece. An energetic agitator and the most prominent figure in the nascent socialist movement, Drakoulis founded the Workers League of Greece. In August 1910 he was one of ten socialists elected to the national parliament and cooperated with the political party of Eleftherios Venizelos.[1] He supported Greece war efforts during the first world war.[2]
