Walking along the river bed of Kifisos: The action was an event of walking and talking, carrying buckets as a symbolic gesture reminding the absence of water.

The next days and until now we have occupied one of the apartments. Refugee's apartment blocks on Alexandras av. is the first example of modernist urban design in Athens at the 30s. The states policy is to buy the apartments in a cheap price and demolish the buildings to create underground parking / square.
