Protesters and mourners place crosses with messages at the Parliament
People gathered around the spot where Dimitris Christoulas took his own life at Syntagma square. Some protesters and Occupy Frankfurt member placed crosses in front of the Parliament.
As people gathered around the spot where Dimitris Christoulas a 77 year old man who took his own life earlier this week at Syntagma square in Athens, Greece, some protesters and Occupy Frankfurt member placed crosses in front of the Parliament, which had messages written on them: "Dignity" (Axioprepia), "Freedom" (Eleftheria) and "Solidarity"(Allilegie).
The protesters entered the barriered area of the Parliament by the sides of the barriers and placed the crosses at the middle of the square in front of the parliament which surprisingly alarmed the officers and the riot police who promptly got close but eventually retreaded (the riot police) as the protesters were not a threat and the messages on the crosses were of course not offensive.
Moments later two police officers were ordered and removed the crosses and placed them respectably outside the barriers but they immediately where put inside again by people that were around.
This symbolic act was to honor the memory of Dimitris Christoulas (mentioned above) but also to Marios Lolos who was violently injured earlier this week that caused brain injury and he had a brain surgery to restore the damage done.
