  • [01] Protest over Halkidiki gold mines in Thessaloniki

    AMNA -- A protest rally and march was held on the square outside Thessaloniki's City Hall on Saturday by Halkidiki residents protesting against a planned gold mining investment in the peninsula's Skouries region. The protest was joined by residents of Thessaloniki, members of political and environmental organisations and movements that oppose the proposed gold mines and delegations of protestors from Kilkis and Thrace, two other areas where similar investments are proposed.

    Meanwhile, a second protest rally made up of students, teachers and school pupils opposing the 'Athena' educational reform plan had gathered in front of the Eleftherios Venizelos statue in the city and later moved down Tsimiski Street in order to meet with the march against the gold mine investments at Agia Sofia Street.

    The peaceful protest march ended in front of Thessaloniki's White Tower monument later on Saturday afternoon, where some protestors remained to hear speakers opposing the operation of the gold mines but without blocking traffic.
