Statues and Unliberty

This statue is a statue of the admiral named Votsis who managed to sink one of the ships of the Turks when they were about to reach the city of Thessaloniki. The people down the statue were all immigrants from Africa selling their goods. The image was striking as it seems that the war makes humans unhappy and it is pointless since everything is futile and we should stop making wars or feel hatred towards each other.
