During the seconds 00:08 - 20:00 protesters can be heard to shout in Greek: "Go away, go to your country, murderers!".



Αθήνα 12 Νοεμ. 2013.
Σε συγκέντρωση διαμαρτυρίας που έκαναν οι απολυμένες καθαρίστριες υπηρεσιών του υπουργείου Οικονομικών, αποδοκίμασαν την έλευση των στελεχών της τρόικας που κατέφτασαν για τη συνάντηση στο ΥΠΟΙΚ και επιχείρησαν να μπουν στο κτίριο, αλλά απωθήθηκαν από αστυνομικές δυνάμεις.

"Όσοι άκουσαν τα συνθήματά τους και τις είδαν παρατεταγμένες απέναντι στα πάνοπλα ΜΑΤ (τουλάχιστον δύο αστυνομικοί για κάθε γυναίκα!) μαντεύουν ότι πριν περάσει πολύς καιρός οι στρατιές των πεινασμένων θα πολιορκούν υπουργεία και άλλα δημόσια κτίρια, όχι επειδή θα τις καθοδηγεί το ΚΚΕ, ο ΣΥΡΙΖΑ ή κάποιο άλλο κόμμα, αλλά γιατί θα τις οδηγεί η απόγνωση..."
