"Burn your neighbourhood bank," reads a graffito on the glass front of Marfin Popular Bank on Stadiou Avenue in central Athens. The photo, taken by photographer Marie Mauzy around noon on Wednesday, approximately two hours before the bank was torched, clearly demonstrates that words are linked to deeds. The anarchists who burned this branch, like vampires, were invited. Below, the same window as photographed yesterday.
