Oxi Day

October 28, 2018

Roads closed outside Greek Parliament, flag waving, speeches, Oxi Day, No to Fascism Day, the day in 1940 when Greece said not to Fascism and entered the Second World War.

Greeks are very proud that they said no to Fascism, even though it was at huge cost to the country. Equally they are proud to have said no to  EU, again at huge cost, to then be betrayed by the ruling coalition.

Roads outside Parliament closed, large numbers on the streets celebrating, long queues to get into The Acropolis and Acropolis Museum.
