True to their promise to continue and despite the heavy rain thousands of Greeks gathered again at Syntagma Square in Athens, in front of the Lefkos Pyrgos monument (White Castle translated loosely) in Thessaloniki, in Patras, in Veroia, in Agrinio and other Greek cities to protest against the Greek government’s new measures: cuts in all public services.
The “patriotic” climate favoured the presence of fascists waving Greek flags but they were soon isolated and asked to leave. The same happened when a protester waved a communist symbol.
The decisively non-party orientation of the rallies has baffled the political parties and their members while there are individual voices on Facebook calling party members to participate on their own.
Unfortunately could not find any photos that I like. I shall try to be there tomorrow to bring you more up to date news
