Orthodox Icon

A sign portraying an Orthodox icon is waved at an anti-austerity rally by Greece's public servants unions in Athens on Nov. 13. Thousands of employees will be put on a one-year notice with reduced wages, on the way to retirement or dismissal, or will be immediately suspended. The sign reads, "Memorandum Speech," (on book), "Prayer, Employees of the Byzantine museum" (bottom left), and "Saint Go" (top).
