Athens, Greece, saw thousands of people hitting the streets in an anti-military march to protest the West’s involvement in Libya’s current situation.
The action was organized by Greece’s communists. Chanting, “Out with the imperialists from Libya”, the demonstrators marched from the Parliament buildings to the US Embassy in Athens.
On Saturday, France, Italy, Spain, Britain and the US launched a military operation to suppress the regime of Col Gaddafi in Libya. The move was sanctioned by the earlier-signed UN resolution.
Greece is yielding its navy bases and airports to house the military hardware of anti-Gaddafi coalition.
