Athens – Political Demonstration

I like a good political demonstration, although having said that, I will soon move away from anything that might involve violence or angry police. There’s a limit to my bravery….

I’m also not sure that I’d have made a very good photographer of important political events, since by the time I heard this one they’d marched on and I just got the photo of their backs.

I didn’t have a clue what they were protesting about, but some investigating (which involved trying to translate the banners by reading them in reverse) has led me to discover that they are protesting against fascism. There’s a news story about a similar demonstration that took place a few weeks ago.
