Taking the lead from Spain, more than 50,000 people were gathered at Syntagma square, Wednesday noon, to protest the austerity measures, responding to a grassroots Facebook campaign. The protest gathering is schedulled to end at 11:30 pm. No police presence was reported.

The demonstrators chanted anti-government slogans. Alongside Wednesday's protestors are the so called "300", a group of old people that remain in Syntagma for the last four days and gather signatures for a referendum on the memorandum.

Similar demonstrations have been organised via the internet for other major cities around Greece, including Thessaloniki, Heraklion and Patra, with the calls empasizing peaceful protesting outside of party lines.

Greeks are indignant at a fresh wave of austerity cuts announced this week after painful sacrifices to address a debt crisis last year were partly neutralised by a deep recession that has cost hundreds of thousands of jobs.

It was modeled on a similar mobilisation in Spain this week.

Thousands gathered in Madrid in a protest timed to coincide with Sunday's regional and local elections, which delivered a heavy blow to Prime Minister Jose Luis Rodriguez Zapatero's ruling Socialist Party.

The popular protests, slickly organized via Twitter and Facebook, were the largest since Spain's property bubble collapsed in 2008 destroying millions of jobs.

Greeks once more prove that they are too lazy and pampered to accept salaries that match their productivity. They don't have the courage to shut up and accept that they were conquered by their own laziness.

Let's protest instead, its easier than working.

There is a gap among the greek oligarchy and the ordinary people..The greek problem is being created by the speculators and the 65000 oligarchs who gripped the greek wealth..On the other hand the international speculators found the way to gain more and more.. The question of lazy people is an other issue related to the social weakeness of the greek society and the immature political system.

sleepless..I've just returned from Syntagma.. It was marvellous although authorities turned off the internet connection and the wi fi of the square.. the controlled media avoided to cover in depth the profile of the protesters but the fact is that there is anger and fear..despite all greeks are patriots and they want just to live in peace in their homes and their own land.

I agree with you mates.. There is an obvious difference..The greeks protests in Athens were first of all citizens, protested peacefully, collected their rubbish, expressed themselves and returned back at home.. During the day we live as usual and after 1900 we spend our leisure time indicating politicians how to act protecting our national interest.. Athens welcomes democracy.

just notice that athens and thessaloniki protested..the other cities still are far away from the massive demonstration.. we need to reach more than one million to overthrow our tyrans..but they will prevent this..in any case we don't surrender.
