Athens Roma resist eviction

Issue No. 2424

Roma people demonstrated outside their camp in Athens on Tuesday of last week against a planned eviction.  

The Greek authorities had planned to evict the 40 year old camp and move it to Megara in western Attica.

Roma protesters set up road blocks and succesfully kept police out for 12 hours. 

But authorities have only backed down temporarily.
