ANA-MPA - After another strong turnout at Syntagma Square on Sunday, in spite of the earlier rain and a three-day weekend that many Athenians used to get away, the 'Indignant Citizens Movement' of Athens is now planning to gather outside Parliament on Tuesday morning at 7:00 a.m.While not as large as the rally on the previous Sunday, the third European-wide protest was still quite sizeable and by 7:00 p.m. the Greek capital's central square had filled up and the protest starting to spill over into Amalias Avenue. Roads surrounding the square remained clear, however.
The new austerity measures announced by the government in the Medium-Term Fiscal Strategy programme were the target of the protests, with protests planned on Wednesday, the day when Greek trade unions have declared a general strike, and the day that the Medium-Term programme is voted on in Parliament.
