Kanellos lies on the ground, finally realizing his destiny.

No matter how many pawns the system put out, or machines of war, if Greece is demanding basic competence from their government and needed a friend, Kanellos was there. He was there, man.

As the police opened up with their spray cannons, Kanellos bravely showed them his back, and put his tail in the air like he just didn't care.

Like a Greek general of old, Kanellos patrols the line personally to see how the battle for economic justice and freedom from the international banking cartel is going.

It says Kanellos in the captions, but according to someone from reddit, that was the name of a previous dog:
ôI live in Athens, in exarxeia and this dog is very famous and everybody feeds and loves this animal.BUT his name is LOUK,from Loukanikos a word that means sausage,because he used to eat sausages all the time.He lives on the street,he has no master and he, allong with 4-5 other dogs comes to every demonstration here in ahens.You will find him every day in MESOLLOGIOU street,where ALEXANDROS GRIGOROPOULOS,a 15 year old student was shot by the police.
KANELLOS was another dog that used to act the same,but he died two years ago and now he is buried by comrades inside the Polytechneio university in Athens,where the uprising against dictatorship took place,in 1973.The members of Indymedia athens,used to feed him.Also when Kanellos was caught by the dog catcher 4 years ago,a demo of 400 people took place and we released him from the dog catcher!You can find his grave inside the university.Kanello RIP!
These dogs live in Exarxeia and they donĺt belong to nobody.We call themöthe dogs of the movementö and there many of them, such as ROZA,DICK,RIBO,PETROS,LOUCY.Its funny but they are our comrades,we protect and feed them and they protect us as well.
