Brief recap from today’s demonstration against G. Papandreou

This morning around 70 protesters tried to approach Edinburgh International conference where TEDGlobal was held. We wanted to express our opposition to the talk from G. Papandreou and have our voices heard as loud as possible. However, we were surrounded by the police and not allowed to approach the conference center. In an effort to act on our constitutional right of free movement in public spaces we were pushed back and blocked 20 meters away from the conference centre. Our lively group shouted at the top of their lungs against austerity and the politics followed by the neo-liberal political parties, part of which is G. Papandreou himself for the last 30 years.

Slogans included “from Scotland to Greece no justice no peace”, “Papandreou get out, we know what you’re all about: cuts, job losses, money for the bosses” and more others!
