Sign in Greek saying "For Sale" on side of historical monument. Greeks take to the streets again in second day of Spanish style protests

Gathering in cities across the nation Greeks have once more gathered in peaceful protest to show their disatisfacation not only with the current ruling PASOk party but also the Greek political system in general. In a campaign organised via Facebook and inspired by similiar Spanish protests thousands shouted anti-government and ant- IMF slogans.

In Athens more than 15,000 remain in front of the country's parliament despite rain. In the northern port city of Thessaloniki thousands rallied outside the town's White Tower in symbolic protest, while several hundred took part in impromptu open air political debates, sharing views and personal stories of how the economic crisis has affected them.
