Thousands Rally in Athens For Greece’s Stay in the Eurozone



sintagma_protests

Thousands of Greeks opposing to the country’s exit from the Eurozone gathered outside the Greek Parliament on Monday to raise their voice against the “war of propaganda against the IMF” and make sure that Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras and the rest of the Greek government will not lead the country to a financial abyss.

This came just a day after another big rally on Sunday, which was essentially opposed to any form of austerity measures and public spending cuts.

In great contrast to past rallies in Athens’ Syntagma Square leading to violent protesting, today’s gathering was considered peaceful despite the fact that many protesters are desperate with the current financial situation.

Interestingly, along the attendees who demonstrated in favor of Greece’s stay in the common currency bloc, one could find both cabinet Ministers and opposition lawmakers.

  1. Peaceful rally… ergo not the far leftist and anarchist extremists that terrorized our streets for last 5 years.

  2. Yes, that’s the first question I ask, when I hear the sentence: “we save the Banks”. Why the hell Banks have to be saved and what have the former Government done with te Money? Where it is gone? I think, Mr. Varoufakis is right when he says: “Capital were driven by the commercial banks in a consumer boom and by the state in an orgy of dubious procurement and absolute waste”
