Tourist in my country! 🇬🇷 Behind me is the Hellenic Parliament or most commonly known among Greeks “Vouli ton Ellinon”, at Syntagma square in Athens. It was built in 1843 and here took place the introduction of Athens’ first constitution, hence the name Syntagma Square means Constitution Square. Back in the days it was intended to host the Greek people in order to exercise their democratic rights of free speech. Nowadays, inside this beautiful building, the political parties are abusing daily the principles of real democracy. In a few years, sadly, this building will remind the rise and fall of a great nation.

Make a stop at the Plaza Café, for a refreshing smoothie and a snack. Then hit the road again; there is always so much to see in Athens.

We are back on track! Have a lovely week! We are waiting for you!

Today, this photo illustrates a portrait of Alexis Tsipras and the decline of his popularity in Greece in French newspaper @journal.lacroix (https://www.la-croix.com/…/Alexis-Tsipras-pragmatique-airs-…). I shot in July 2015 and it was never published before. It is the last Friday before the referendum, everyone in #Syntagma square is shouting OXI (No) to the referendum question (on whether or not the Greek people wanted to support an EU bailout deal that would grant money to the indebted country in exchange for spending cuts and further reforms). Despite the huge crowd, probably the greatest gathering on #Greek recent history, Tsipras looks like this, worried, almost shivering. He was probably feeling that he was unexpectedly going to win something he didn't expect to be winning...he had conquered the heart and minds of his population who were now ready to challenge the #troika and to accept a jump in the void. However, the referendum was nothing else that another political manoeuvre to gain concessions from Brussels in one hand, and to keep the revolutionary rhetoric in front of his people on the other. What happened we all know, #Tsipras won the referendum with over 61% of the votes and few days later he had to betray those result, and sign a deal with the creditors to get more money in exchange of reforms and more #austerity. Many people in #Greece will never forgive him for such move. In the moment of this image, Tsipras is probably understanding what is going to happen. He is looking at his people, shouting slogans and being on his side and he already knows that he has to betray them and to stab their dreams.

Today, this photo illustrates an article on newspaper @journal.lacroix that deals with #Greece getting out of the last aid #economic plan. It is a short reportage on the job situation today (https://www.la-croix.com/…/Alexis-Tsipras-pragmatique-airs-…). I shot this photo in front of Greek Parliament in #Syntagma square in 2015, when the spectrum of #Grexit was stilllooming in #Athens and #Greek politics suddenly became the worst preoccupation for people in #Brussels. .
