Kanellos the Greek protest dog

A dog that has been seen at nearly every demonstration in Athens over the last two years has turned up again during the recent protests against new austerity measures.





The dog takes a frontline position as protesters confront riot police


The hound always seems to side with the protesters, whatever the dispute


Nonplussed as a lone stone-thrower prepares to attack police


The dog has been a regular of scenes of social unrest for two years and is unfazed even by water cannon


The dog stood guard over a line of protesters in December when students took to the streets to protest against a plan for policing at universities


At another protest in December, the dog appeared again


It scavenges from a bottle of milk dropped by farmers during a protest near Syntagma Square in central Athens


During a rally against an agreement between Piraeus port management and a Chinese company


Demonstrations against education cuts in January 2009 turn violent


It joins a single demonstrator in a sit-down protest


Teargas explodes right in front of the curious canine


Paint-spattered police ignore the dog as it saunters past


However ugly the confrontation, the dog is unperturbed


A playful mood during a dockers' demonstration two years ago
