'Riot Dog' Is Back In Athens : The Two-WayWhen there are protests in the Greek capital, doggie demonstrator Loukanikos is usually in the middle of things. He's not the only socially active canine in the city, though. Dogs are something of a symbol at the anti-austerity demonstrations.
"Athens' stray dogs naturally seek company. And there's no better place to find lots of it than at one of Athens' many demonstrations. Photographers have documented the presence of several yellowish dogs at boisterous anti-government protests over the years, barking and baring their teeth at police in what appears to be canine political statements."
Our friend Jacob Goldstein over at Planet Money reported on the canines' case last year, during some of the previous anti-austerity riots in Athens.
