Greece: Striking taxi owners stage sit-ins

Striking taxi owners on Saturday morning staged a sit-in demonstration at Thessaloniki’s Macedonia International Airport that ended after a few hours without disrupting airport operations.

Meanwhile, taxi owners on the island of Crete also staged a sit-in demonstration at the regional government offices in Iraklion after holding a protest march. A sit-in demonstration was held at the local airport on Friday evening.

Taxi owners protesting against the deregulation of their profession on Friday decided to continue their nationwide strike action for a third week after the failure of the talks with Infrastructures, Transport and Networks Minister Yiannis Ragousis.
