Around forty Greek protesters gathered at the entrance of the Consulate General of Greece in New York, on Friday and expressed their frustration for the situation in Greece. Under police control, the “indignants” as they call themselves in public as well as in the documents that distributed to the passers-by, gathered at the intersection of 69th Street and Park Avenue, carrying slogans, Greek and American flags, and the sun of Vergina.
Several chants were heard during the demonstration such as: “Traitors, Thieves, Politicians in Jail”, ”Greek Politicians and their bosses having a party with our money”, ”This is Sparta”, ”Error 404 Democracy not found”.
The organisational committee supported by Helen Gkiokas, Chris Tzelios, Evangelos Stamatopoulos and Nicholas Notaridis drafted a specific resolution, signed by everyone who was present at the demonstration and handed it to General Consul of Greece in New York, Agis Baltas immediately after the talks.
The resolution was addressed to the President of Greek Republic Mr. Karolos Papoulias, and communicated to the President of Greek Parliament, Greek Prime Minister George Papandreou, other chairmen of parliamentary groups as well as independent members.
