Demonstration in Athens Today

September 16, 2009 on 7:48 am | In things travelers need to know | Comments Off

A demonstration is scheduled to take place at the Serbian Embassy in Athens this evening at 6PM. The Serbian Embassy is located in the Ambelokipi neighborhood, near the United States Embassy.

The demonstration is in response to the arrest of five political activists in Belgrade on September 4, 2009. Those arrested were activists in or associates of the Anarcho-Syndicalist initiative. Several organizations believe that the arrests were on “trumped up charges”. Based on quick research, which may not be definitive, we believe the organization to which the arrested belong, or are reported to belong, is an international anarchist-communist association.

While most demonstration are peaceful, there is always the possibility that they may turn violent. If you willl be traveling in Athens today, avoid the area for your own peace of mind.
