Someone from Greece posted several videos on a thread this morning.
For the first time in the modern history of Greece, the President of Greece Karolos Papoulias is forced to leave from the military parade for the celebration of the national day of October 28th!
Hundreds of thousands of people gathered in Thessaloniki, where the celebrations took place, and shouted “TRAITOR, TRAITOR” at the first citizen of Greece. He was forced to leave, stating that a small group (!!!) ruined today’s celebrations.

The role of the President, in Greece, is very limited. He is only required to sign the laws that the Parliament votes for. The true policy maker is the Prime Minister, now George Papandreou.
The world was shouting TRAITOR at him because he could had easily refused to sign all the laws who impoverished Greeks.
The parade started normally, without any officials!!
