November 17, 2020

ATHENS — Opposition MeRA25 leader Yanis Varoufakis arrived at the Athens Polytechnic on Tuesday, accompanied by MeRA25 MPs holding placards with messages such as "Democracy can't be placed in quarantine" and "Ongoing struggle for democracy".

Varoufakis and six of his party's MPs will then march to the US Embassy.

"We are here for our youth, the youth of MeRA25, our membes and we thank them for accepting our Political Secretariat's recommendation to not come to the march today, in order to abide by the health measures. We are here, seven deputies that are keeping the necessary distances, who symbolise that the march of the Polytechnic has now become acclaimed through history as a supreme moment when Greeks have the opportunity to protest against an establishment that undermines health, education, democracy, freedom and finally dignity," said Varoufakis.
