Downtown protest rallies lacking in energy
An elderly woman rests at Omonia Square as protesters gather for an antimemorandum rally organized by the Communist Partyaffiliated labor union PAME. The Communist Party has been highly critical of the SYRIZAled government for agreeing a new bailout. The PAME gathering was separate from one organized by the ADEDY civil servants’ union. The participation in both rallies was fairly low, probably due to many Athenians being out of the city for their summer vacations.
