Wednesday 24 June / 6 p.m. / Market Square, Cambridge CB2
In the week that Greece's Syriza government has returned to the negotiating table and its people to the streets, the Cambridge Greece Solidarity Campaign and the Cambridge People's Assembly will hold an informal free concert in solidarity with the Greek people's struggle to break with the austerity policies that are crushing their country.
Join us outside the Guildhall in Market Square on Wednesday evening!
