Many foodstores near Syntagma Square in downtown Athens, that has been under "occupation" by the "Indignados" since the end of May, are enjoying considerably higher turnovers due to the daily arrival of crowds of people.
"We have many people every day. Particularly on the two Sundays of the European mobilisations, the queue reached outside the store," said one waiter at a cafeteria in the area.

Shopkeepers in nearby streets speak of a relative increase in movement, without this entailing more revenues, stressing that their turnovers are following a continuous downward trend due to the economic conjuncture.
