Greek protesters unveil banner on Acropolis
Greece's most famous ancient monument, the Acropolis, became the latest stage for the country's deep political crisis on Wednesday when protesters draped it with banners calling for anti-government demonstrations across Europe.
On the twelfth day of unrest since a police officer's fatal shooting of a schoolboy triggered riots and arson, protesters unfurled two large pink banners from the stone walls of the ancient hilltop citadel, which looms over Athens.
"Thursday 18/12 demonstrations in all Europe," one banner read in Greek,
English, Italian and German, while the other simply bore the word:"Resistance".
