A major rally to protest the use of the word ‘Macedonia’ in any solution between FYROM and Greece is to take place in Pireaus on February 4th. Many have already taken place with some sources saying that over 100,000 people protested in Thessaloniki last week.

 

The upcoming rally was initially intended to take place in Syngtagma, the usual scene of multiple protests in recent years, but organisers have changed it to Pireaus after receiving advice from several officials, who cited traffic congestion and security concerns.

 

Negotiations between the two sides continue and it is clear that the general Greek public remain firmly opposed to the use of the word ‘Macedonia’ in any solution.
