Thousands of Greeks took to the streets at the annual International Fair in Thessaloniki on Saturday, to protest a new austerity package, which includes another round of wage and pension cuts.

About 15,000 people marched through the streets. A few protesters burned a European flag while another group threw watermelons and peaches onto the street in support of struggling farmers. Even though the protest was largely peaceful, 3,500 rioting police were dispatched to the streets.

Breaking with 75 years of tradition, Greek Prime Minister Antonios Samaras made only a brief appearance to inaugurate the event and to defend his anti-Greek policies. Samaras told politicians and local officials, "We are trying to minimize the pain from the cuts as much as possible but we have to make the cuts, because there is no other way. I am telling you the truth, there is no other way."

SYRIZA opposition leader Alexis Tsipras, who participated in the rallies had this to say: "The Prime Minister came and left like a thief -- perhaps he is ashamed."

- From Tyler Durden @ zerohedge:

The chart below needs no commentary, neither does what it represents. In May Greek unemployment, pre revision, was 23.1%. It was subsequently revised higher to 23.5%, but this is merely to make the jump to the June number more palatable. What was June? 24.4%. In other words, no matter how one looks at it, the unemployment rate rose by 1% in one month.

In other words, Greece may or may not be kicked out out Europe. At this rate, in 75 months there won't be a Greece left.
