  • [01] Truckers protest as parliament discusses sector liberalisation bill

    ANA-MPA/Truck owners from across Greece on Tuesday staged a protest march to Parliament in downtown Athens to deliver a petition demanding the withdrawal of the draft law liberalizing road freight transport in the country set to be voted on Wednesday.

    Tension briefly flared outside the parliament when the protesters arrived at the Monument of the Unknown Soldier to hold a sit-in demonstration. Minor scuffles occurred when police tried to push the marchers away and prevent them from approaching the parliament building.

    The protesters spent the night outside the parliament in an effort to convince the government to withdraw the proposed legislation.

    In a meeting held ahead of the march, they decided to continue and escalate mobilizations even after the new law is passed by Parliament, while sector trade unionists accused Infrastructure, Transport and Networks Minister Dimitris Reppas of breaking his promises.

    The relevant letter that will be addressed to the former prime minister informs him that the Committee "judged unanimously that it would be useful for you to contribute with your testimony as well in the probing of this affair. For this reason, we are at your disposal, to determine jointly, the most suitable way for this contribution of yours."
