‘No Justice, No Peace’ March in Athens, Greece

A march from Syntagma Square to the American Embassy took place at 7pm EEST on June 3rd in Athens.

The march was organised as a show of solidarity with protestors against racial violence and the brutal murder of George Floyd in Minnesota (USA), uniting their fight with the struggle of Greek activists demonstrating the murder of Zak Kostopoulos (a leading LGBTQ+ activist in Greece) at the hands of citizens and police forces in the centre of Athens last year.

“We are united by:

Our Zakie and their George Floyd

Refugees, migrants and minorities seeking a place in the sun

The dead-end of poverty and unemployment

The systemic response to our struggles, which is fascism, racism and policy brutality

We stand in solidarity with demonstrators for justice and equality, wherever they might fight.”

With these words DiEM25 in Greece has called out to fellow progressive citizens and organisations to join in a march from Syntagma Square to the American Embassy in Athens.
