Greece Alerte de sécurité

Protesters gather amid 24-hour transport strike on November 26; avoid associated demonstrations and anticipate disruptions

TIMEFRAME expected from 26/11/2020, 12h00 until 28/11/2020, 11h59 (Europe/Athens). COUNTRY/REGION Greece

Event

Protests were reported in Athens and Thessaloniki on Thursday, November 26, amid a 24-hour strike affecting public transport and ferry services across the country. In Athens, commuters have been advised that metro, rail, and tram services will not be running due to the industrial action. Journalists and civil servants have also joined the strike which was called to oppose a series of proposed government reforms including abolishing the eight-hour day and restrictions on industrial action. Hundreds of protesters marched in the vicinity of Athens' Klafthmonos square whilst a smaller group of demonstrators gathered in Thessaloniki. A strike by air traffic controllers which was scheduled to occur between Wednesday, November 25, and Thursday was suspended after a court ruled the action illegal.

Advice

Members should anticipate a surge in demand for alternative means of transport due to the strike. Those conducting overland travel are advised to review their journey plans in light of the strike. Members in Greece are advised to avoid the vicinity of any possible rallies due to the risk of exposure to incidental violence, opportunistic crime and heavy-handed security response. Monitor local media for the latest developments on the situation.
