    Background: Students and youth members of Greek Communist and Socialist Parties organised a mass rally on Thursday (May 15) to celebrate the 30th anniversary of the defeat of Nazi Germany.

    Although the Greek Government had refused to allow a march through the streets or gathering in public square, they consented to the students organising their rally in Panathinaikos football stadium in Athens.

    Tens of thousands of Athenians were there, together with visitors from the Soviet Union, Yugoslavia and Bulgaria.

    Many of the demonstrators took the opportunity to display anti-American and anti-NATO slogans. But the rally also had a non-political side, including Greek folk dances and songs.
