Participation is very big, often with 200,000 people or more in Athens
alone. A recent survey found more than 2.5 million people around Greece (out
of a population of 10 million) have either joined or expressed their
intention to join protests in the squares.

Polls show a very high percentage of Greek people (87%) express a positive
view of the movement in opinion polls.
