#Greece Just arrived in #Syntagma. Small crowd, a few dozen. Darn Greeks, always late even for demos :)

#Greece #Syntagma I'd like to add that the square doesn't look any cleaner than before the municipal clean-up to me. #sarcasm

#Greece #Syntagma Crowd is slowly growing. Very diverse, from trendy youth to working-class elderly to anarcho-leftists.

#Greece #Syntagma Looks like we're moving. The guys with the drums are getting active. Or maybe not.

#Greece #Syntagma The size of the crowd is very disappointing but there's a fantastic grandma with a home-made sign.
