Athens Blocked by 24-Hour Strike of Public Transport Employees
Public transport employees in Athens are beginning a 24-hour strike on Thursday in order to protest against the plans for the privatisation of public transport vehicles, reported BTA.
Three protests have been planned. The first is for Thursday and the other two are scheduled for March 1 and March 3. The leaders of the protests declared that the legal regulation is a “Trojan horse” in order to facilitate the plan of creditors and to place public transport in private hands.
The latest serious protests in Greece were at the beginning of the year when farmers closed key junctions across the country.
In December last year, sailors also protested and blocked the movement of ferries and ships in the entire country.
