Walking towards the parade street
Traffic policemen close nearby streets and traffic stops. Drivers are not happy.
Desperate bus driver
The driver has just listened to the traffic policeman who told him to make a turning manoeuvre and is about to shoot himself. It’s not easy driving in the streets of Athens…
Passengers are not happy either
I don’t give a s*** if the road is closed!
I payed a ticket and I want you to take me to my destination, no matter what!
The girl is going to participate in the parade.
The gentleman is obviously not.
Once I was
He was having an interesting conversation with his friend,
when an aparently more interesting lady walked into the shop…
Lend me your eyes
Let me down
He was not happy at all!
All he wanted was to get down and run around barking at the spectators.
The parade starts with the Members of the Greek Resistance. Schools will follow them.
Pride and Shame
Members of the Greek Resistance against the Axis, parading locally during our National Holiday. (On the 25th of March we celebrate the official beginning of the uprising and revolution in 1821 against 368 years ruthless occupation by the Ottoman empire, which finally led to the liberation of the country.)
The banners read:
“I was imprisoned by the fascists to set free the dreams of our youth.
Who gives you the right, today, to imprison ther lives?”
“I was sentenced to death twice, so our youth could live two times better than I did. Who gives you the right to deprive our youth from all their rights?”
“I fought so the children of Greece live a better life.
Why do you condemn them to unemployment?”
Greece is facing a devastating financial crisis recently.
And it’s DEFINITELY NOT ONLY the Greek people who are responsible for that!
Who is Responsible ?
as the media never show it all!
The parade is over. People wait for the bus to go home
Poster says: “Dare! Fight on the side of the Greek Communist Party.
Let the plutocracy bankrupt, not the people”
