In the cold and damp February morning, the smell of recently extinguished fires remains in the air as the Athenians discover the damages caused by the recent riots. 94 percent of the Greeks are against the austerity measures imposed to the country by foreign lenders, according to a public opinion survey conducted in March. Meanwhile, the government which implemented austerity measures stands still. The conservatives of New Democracy have a slight lead over the opposition party Syriza in recent surveys.
