Greek anti-austerity protest in Syntagma Square
‘‘We are here because enough is enough’’ said a 40-year-old mother of four, who has just managed to find employment after a year on the dole. Christina works as a cleaner at a hair salon for six hours daily and earns 500 euros a month. ‘‘We must show them that they have taken enough so far, we must rise up’’ referring to Greece’s political elite. ‘‘I am not indignant, I am determined’’ Lakis, a civil servant in his fifties says ‘‘There is nothing left for us, the people are condemned to misery’’.
