Ekathimerini: Record turnout for 'Indignant' protesters in Athens (May 29, 2011)
Greeks inspired by the Spanish "Indignant" or "Indignados" movement held their largest protest so far in Athens on Sunday, which some estimates put as high as 100,000 people, although a more accurate assesment seemed to be that those taking part exceeded 30,000.

Greece's version of the `Indignant' movement, protesting austerity measures and demanding that politicians are more in tune with citizens' needs, has led to thousands of people protesting in front or Parliament in Athens, as well as in other cities, every day since Wednesday. Some have started camping out overnight as well.
