Klafthmonos Square… the crying place

Sacked workers would once come here to cry and feed the pigeons

Klafthmonos square was named after the workers who wept in the square more than a century ago when governments would seep them from their public sector job. The focal point of the square is the monument of National Reconciliation sculpted by Vassilis Doropoulos in 1989. Today it is the gathering spot for one of the huge rallies taking place against the Radical Left Coalition’s austerity policies. CLICK HERE for rolling coverage of the strike.
