Political satire during the carnival in Patras

15 March 2013 / 20:03:05  

"The characters on other platforms include German Chancellor Angela Merkel, German Finance Minister Wolfgang Schaeuble, Prime Minister Antonis Samaras and his partners in the ruling coalition - Evangelos Venizelos and Fotis Kouvelis. We also have the figures of the representatives of the supervisory Troika. Other platforms show in a funny way how their policies are affecting the lives of us all. For example, the platform called "Greek souvlaki" (Greek skewer) is a satire on the way the Troika’s requirements are harassing the Greeks," the artistic director of the carnival Maria Kourbana told GRReporter.
