The years of the Greek Junta (1967–1974) were the most recent, tragic period of modern Greek history. They are mostly remembered for their shocking oppression and for the massive anti‐authoritarian student movement that arose in response. This essay presents and analyzes protest activities under the Greek Junta, grouping them into three broad “waves”: passive resistance and clandestine activity; elaborate cultural activity; and mass mobilization. Networks of resistance gradually developed with the convergence of the needs of various sectors of society. The role of culture proved instrumental, because it served as the arena where meaningful discourse was interpreted and re‐interpreted against the backdrop of local and global demands. Cultural activity and consumption morphed into ideological and organizational preparation that eventually determined the stakes of an open anti‐authoritarian movement.
