EL.AS.: Prohibition of gatherings in Attica
Already at 06:00 in the morning, the ban on all public gatherings in Attica has come into force on the occasion of the completion of ten years since the murder of the two members of Golden Dawn.
The ban will be in effect until 06:00 on Thursday morning, and was imposed because “there is a serious risk to public safety, due to the possible commission of serious crimes, in particular against life, bodily integrity and property, from holding assemblies and ” anti-gatherings” by groups of opposing positions”, according to EL.AS.
In addition, the same police announcement stated, “there is a serious threat of disruption of socio-economic life, both in the areas where gatherings have been announced, and in the other areas of the prefecture of Attica, where similar gatherings are likely to take place, as well as the simultaneous presence in a climate of polarization concentrated groups”.
