Across the UK, protest marches have been held to show "solidarity" with the Greek people. A thousand turned up in London, and a few hundred in other cities.
Head organiser Noah Dear held a small press conference for the two journalists who had turned up, and a couple of passers-by. He declared the march was a success, and had shown that the people of Britain were in "solidarity" with Greece.
When asked whether the march had raised any money or material help for the Greek people, Noah said that it hadn't. He said that that was not the point of the march.
He was asked if any Greek people were aware of the show of "solidarity". Mr Dear said that he hadn't heard about anyone in Greece who knew about it.
He then said angrily, "The whole point of the march is to show solidarity. That's all. It's a vague esoteric concept, of no practical use. Why wouldn't anyone want to go on a march for that?"
