Some 50,000 people protest in Athens against government's adjustment measures

Shouting "European Revolution" Over 50,000 people have gathered this afternoon in downtown Athens to protest the austerity measures the government and against "politicians, bankers and tax evaders," banners and prayed many . In the concentration of Syntagma Square, the largest that aganaktismeni (outraged) Greeks have held during the last 12 days in the Greek capital, there were also gestures of solidarity with Yemen and the Egyptian revolution of January 25.

"From the Tahrir Square to Syntagma Square, here we are," said another of the banners. Similar concentrations have occurred in other Greek cities.
