Nov 6th Athens anti-austerity demonstration

Today was a HUGE demo against the austerity measures ... the Communist Party (separately) and then unions and other groups (one group we spoke to was people with MS) marched.into Syndagma  (constitution) Square.   The march took at least 3 hours to pass a single point.   No violence.  Tomorrow's is expected to be even bigger.  We aim to get translations of the many photos we took of the banners from  Greek colleague Constantine who is also here for the European GP council.
