Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
2d day of protests under a thunderstorm right now, live from Syntagma. I'm not sure how long they'll last in the open though it's raining hard.

Yesterday the realistic assessment was around 25.000 and that's erring on the side of caution. People slept in the square and had participatory organizing meetings.

The gatherings were a huge success outside of Athens. There were 33 such events biggest among which was 12.000 in Thessaloniki (I'm sure there's a stream somewhere), 5000 in Patras over 2000 in Larissa, Volos, Heraklion and Chania. The locals say that these were the biggest demos since the Iraq war protests....
