Graffitti, banners and placards

It has taken me a while to get all of this together, but here is some of the graffitti to be found around Athens at the moment, as well as some of the posters and placards that are still around Syntagma Square.

  2. Cog of the beast, exhume the riot police? What on earth does that mean?
    There was some graffiti in Athens along the lines of 'Eat meat, consume your local police officer' which I guess is always a standby in times of austerity.
