Nov 6th Athens, Anti-austerity demonstration

Today was a HUGE demo against the austerity measures. 

 The march took at least 3 hours to pass at a given point.   There was no violence.  Tomorrow's is expected to be even bigger.  

 Everyone marched into Syntagma (constitution) Square.  

The Communist Party marched separately, followed by the unions and other groups - one group we spoke to was people with MS.

We aim to get translations of the many photos we took of the banners from  Greek colleague Constantine who is also here for the European GP council.
