Taxi drivers across Greece are expected to stage a strike from 04:00 to 16:00 (local time) on Thursday, November 8, to protest a defamation lawsuit filed by the ridesharing app Beat, against the head of the Greek taxi drivers' union, Thymios Lymberpoulos. The strike is also intended to protest a fall in demand for taxis due to the growing popularity of ridesharing services and the government's failure to implement appropriate regulations to protect the business of taxi drivers. A related gathering is scheduled in Athens at 09:00 (local time) on Thursday outside the Evelpidon Court. Further associated protests in the coming days cannot be ruled out.


Individuals in Greece should monitor developments and avoid any related demonstrations.
