ATHENS, Greece — After Monday’s huge rally against the bailout deal on offer for Greece, Tuesday was the turn of the pro-deal campaign to take its place in Syntagma Square, the focal point of Athens’ political life.
The attendees want a “Yes” vote to the bailout in Greece’s snap July 5 referendum. The government, in contrast, is campaigning for people to vote “No.”
The demonstration was at least as well-attended as Monday’s — I thought there were actually slightly more people, but it’s not easy to tell from the ground. Both filled the square and spilled backwards and along side-streets.
I noticed three major differences between Tuesday’s protest and Monday’s: Tuesday’s was wetter, more middle class, and seemed a little angrier.
