Protesters unite to support Greece

Friday 13th February 2015

SWATHES of people took over London’s Parliament Square yesterday demanding an end to austerity in Greece as well as in Britain.

The protests were called to coincide with Yanis Varoufakis’s trip to Brussels, as the Greek finance minister negotiated his country’s debt with the European Central Bank and the IMF.

Greece Solidarity Campaign co-chairman Paul Mackney told the Morning Star that the protest, despite organised at the 11th hour, was “very upbeat.”

“It was tremendous to be part of a wave of solidarity with the Greek people manifested in most big squares in cities across Europe.”

A second wave of protests is set to hit Europe on Sunday with campaigners assembling in London’s Trafalgar Square at 1pm.
