Homeless sleeping on the streets of Athens

homeless sleeping on the streets of Athens

An indication of how bad the situation in Greece, in Athens homeless not only in shop doorways, but sleeping in the middle of the street.

One man, Syntagma, at the entrance to Ermou.

Ermou is like Oxford Street, the same shops.

People with their expensive trendy purchases in their carrier bags, walking by a homeless man sleeping in the middle of the street, a cup in his outstreched hand for donations.

All around Syntagma, in front of Parliament, stray dogs sleeping on the street.

A sense of despair, the jackboots of the Fourth Reich stamping on the face of every Greek citizen, part-time work, temporary contracts for various ministries, the best that can be had for highly educated people
