Thousands gathered for an anti-austerity protest at Syntagma Square in front of the Greek parliament, Athens, on Wednesday. The protesters, among them many members of the governing Syriza party and some from German party Die Linke, held banners reading “European people all together” and “Democracy for Europe.” The protest comes as Greece is 13 days away from its bailout program expiring and a possible exit from the Eurozone.
