“Human Chain” Around the Greek Parliament, June 15 (map)

Here is a map of downtown Athens showing the planned human chain action that will block the entrance to the Parliament.

protest human chain

“Indignant” Greeks have called people to join the action that will start at 7 in the morning and will continue until the evening. At the same time they have called people to refrain from consumption all through the day.

Should the action succeed, a big area in downtown Athens will be closed to traffic from as early as 7 a.m. At the same time big rallies are expected to take place at 10 and 11 in the morning, as labour unions will protest the strict austerity package, the wages and pensions cuts, the incredible high taxation. The country will be practically paralyzed as the General Strike affects all sector of public and private sector.
