Greece calls a general holiday on Thursday in the train accident

A new 24-hour general strike has been called for this Thursday by Greece’s two main unions to clarify the causes of the train accident on March 1, where 57 people died and one is still missing, and the investigation process. it is clear.

Adedy, a union of civil servants of Greece, demanded a stop to the privatization plan because it “reduces the public services of the country”.

This Sunday, thousands of citizens filled the streets of the main cities of Greece to protest the accident and demanded the resignation of the Executive Prime Minister of Greece, Kyriakos Mitsotakis.

According to police sources, more than fifteen thousand people gathered in Athens, and ten were arrested and two were detained for throwing stones and other objects at the police. In Thessaloniki, the country’s second city, thousands of university students protested in front of the statue of Venizelos to demand services and reject the administration of the 20-year-old government, whose policies have caused the loss of “thousands of human lives”.

An ex-minister will be a candidate again

On Sunday, the Rouvikonas anarchist collective released leaflets with the slogan “Karamanlís, minister of crimes and murders” in front of the house of the former Minister of Infrastructure and Transport Kostas A. Karamanlís, who was in charge of the portfolio when the accident happened.

Karamanlís, who submitted his resignation shortly after the accident, is again a candidate in the next general elections this spring of the Greek city, which violated the Greek public and caused several protests before the political office.

Demonstrations and parties to protest the fatal accident are taking place weeks before general elections are held this spring

Demonstrations and parties to protest the fatal accident are taking place weeks before general elections take place this spring, possibly on May 21, according to Greek media. Public indignation and anger at what could have been avoided undermined Greek confidence in institutions. Everything indicates that two calls are necessary to form a government, because, according to the rejection, no party will have enough seats.
