A Call to Syntagma Square
Athens, 9:45 a.m. Saturday, February 11, 2012
During the night of February 10 to 11 leaflets were spread all over Athens. They are small pieces (4.5 by 4.0 inches) of white paper with a text of a few lines printed, on both sides, in black.
Here is a translation of the text:
We summon you to Syntagma
February 12 on 5 in the afternoon
from every corner of Greece, let us gather outside the Parliament
to demand that the death penalty of our country
should not be signed,
which penalty is the passing by vote
of the new loan agreement.
All together, with us,
on Sunday at Syntagma,
to stop the treason!
Manolis Glezos, Mikis Theodorakis
