Exarcheia is a semi-autonomous neighbourhood of Athens where people of the most diverse cultural and social backgrounds try to coexist. After the eviction of Exarcheia’s squats that were providing homes for refugees, Exarcheia square remains a symbol for the ongoing resistance against the growing homogenisation.
