Angela Merkel's Visit
- sarahbrowngb, CNN iReport producer
Peaceful demonstrations in Syntagma Square today as German chancellor Angela Merkel visits Athens. Austerity measures have tensions high, and extra police force is very evident. Our walk through the National Gardens by our school and the stroll to the local grocery both mean encounters with police and barricades. Preventing violent outbreaks seems to be the aim here.
