  • [01] Syntagma protest Tuesday morning

    ANA-MPA - After another strong turnout at Syntagma Square on Sunday, in spite of the earlier rain and a three-day weekend that many Athenians used to get away, the 'Indignant Citizens Movement' of Athens is now planning to gather outside Parliament on Tuesday morning at 7:00 a.m.

    While not as large as the rally on the previous Sunday, the third European-wide protest was still quite sizeable and by 7:00 p.m. the Greek capital's central square had filled up and the protest starting to spill over into Amalias Avenue. Roads surrounding the square remained clear, however.

    The new austerity measures announced by the government in the Medium-Term Fiscal Strategy programme were the target of the protests, with protests planned on Wednesday, the day when Greek trade unions have declared a general strike, and the day that the Medium-Term programme is voted on in Parliament.

    [02] Deputy minister on tourism

    Deputy Culture and Tourism Minister George Nikitiadis concluded his visit to the US pointing to an increase in tourism this summer.

    On the occasion of the conclusion of his visit to the United States, Nikitiadis gave a press conference at Greece's Press and Communication Office in New York, saying that an overall increase in tourism to Greece, mainly from Russia, is expected in the summer months, adding that "an increase is also being observed from America as well."

    He also underlined that "tourism is an unbelievable goldmine for our country."

    Replying to questions on domestic developments, Nikitiadis expressed the opinion that "elections will not take place. They will have no benefit for the country in this period. All the limits for consensus must be exhausted."
