Protests over the name Macedonia across Greece on June 6

Organizers of protests over “the Greek character of Macedonia” have scheduled fresh gatherings across Greece on June 6.

The announcements for the protests come after the latest developments in the name talks.

Following protests in Athens and Thessaloniki, the organizers have now reached local authorities in other cities.

“Through these protests, the Committee fighting for the Greek character of Macedonia will attempt to remind politicians in the country that the Greek people have taken a decision of the name Macedonia and urges for enforcement of these decisions. The Committee would like to make it clear to the Greek government that a name including term ‘Macedonia’ is not acceptable,” reads the press release by the organizers.
