1 23.10.2015 Инфо

Thousands of Greek Communist Party (KKE) supporters flooded central Athens on Thursday to march against austerity. The demonstration coincided with French President Francois Hollande's two-day visit to the Greek capital. Protesters chanted anti-austerity slogans and waved KKE flags, denouncing Hollande's visit. Accompanied by four members of his cabinet including Finance Minister Michel Sapin, the president will engage in talks with the country's creditors. It is the first time that a French president has visited since 2008, when Hollande's predeccsor Nicolas Sarkozy travelled to the country.
