“Macedonia is Greek” rally will take place in Piraeus instead of Athens


The rally under the banner of “Macedonia is Greek” in order to prevent the use of the term “Macedonia” as part of the solution of the name dispute that was supposed to take place in Athens on the 4th of February, instead it will take place in Piraeus, writes the Greek daily newspaper Kathimerini.

According to the official press release, the organizers that are behind the protest that occurred in Thessaloniki this past Sunday didn’t want to cause a traffic chaos in downtown Athens if the protest was organized at the Syntagma Square.

Still, according to the Kathimerini’s sources, the rally’s location was changed due to security concerns because the organizers feared that clashes would erupt among the protestors many of whom tend to the belong to the nationalist camp and self-styled anarchists.
