29 June 2011: A Sad Day for Athens, A Sad Day for Greece

Syntagma Square 2007
Photo Source: unknown (Thanks George Tz)  

One of Greece's elite Presidential Guards, an Evzon, on duty at Syntagma Square 
demonstrating the iron discipline they must have, tears up because of the extensive 
use of teargas by police during a demonstration in 2007 about the destructive Parnitha forest fires

Expressive, extremely powerful and just as appropriate today as it was then... 

This photo was taken in 2007 and not during today's demonstrations and the violence which erupted in the center of Athens before and after the voting of the mid-term fiscal measures in Greece's Parliament... 

A  sad day for  Athens , a sad day for Greece...
