Tens of thousands of Greek Communist Party (KKE) supporters gathered at Syntagma Square in Athens on Thursday to rally against the new bailout program adopted by the Greek government. Supporters held red KKE flags and chanted slogans against the European Union (EU). In recent months the party has gained a reputation for its firm position against the measures imposed on Greece by the European Union.
