A wave of solidarity to crisis victims Greeks is sweeping the world, with a special event planned for Saturday afternoon in a number of cities.
More than 10 cities in Europe will see demonstrations under the banner “We Are All Greeks Now”, including Paris and Dublin.
“The people of Greece need the international solidarity and they call for our support. Let’s reply to their call. We are all Greeks,” reads the circular distributed across social media for the rallies that are scheduled to take place at 2 p.m.
A rally is also planned in New York, at the same park that the Occupy Wall Street rallies had started this winter.
Social media groups in solidarity to the Greek people suffering from the austerity measures and the fiscal crisis have also called for action as they express the fear that what the Greeks are going through is going to apply to other people soon, too.
