US SECRETARY of State Colin Powell was forced to cancel a visit to Greece due to take place on Wednesday of this week. He had arranged to meet the Greek prime minister in the capital, Athens. But anti-war campaigners, as here, found a huge response to protests they called to stop Powell.
Even the mainstream papers in Greece admit the visit was cancelled due to fear of protests. Eleftherotypia writes, 'Sighs of relief could be heard from the US embassy and the government that they won't have to confront demonstrations.'
