Posted by in Society

Athens – Tuesday afternoon: While protesters are throwing stones at policemen and riot police is firing tears gas, a man strips off his clothes and start to run naked in front of the Greek Parliament and around the Syntagma Square.

 The protester runs around and waves with his hand. Unknown if he waves to Angela Merkel and Antonis Samaras or to the MPs.
