Greek police used tear gas and water cannons to disperse a large protest in Thessaloniki, which gathered tens of thousands of people, to express dissatisfaction with the regime and the forced vaccination against the coronavirus.
Authorities said protesters fired flares at police who blocked their way in an attempt to reach the building where Prime Minister Kyriakos Mitsotakis was scheduled to speak on the country’s economic situation.

According to police estimates, tens of thousands of people, including unions, took part in the demonstrations.
Protests in Greece over vaccination against the coronavirus virus began in July after the government announced the mandatory vaccination of health workers and nursing home staff.

Authorities have suggested that vaccines could become mandatory for other employees, such as educators, Reuters reported.
Greece has suspended as many as 6,000 health workers because they missed the September 1 deadline to receive at least the first vaccine, and earlier this month, unvaccinated health workers were offered a second opportunity for immunization, with permission for those suspended to return to work.
According to the latest official data, about 5.7 million Greeks, or 55 percent of the population, have been fully vaccinated against kovid-19, and 59 percent have received a single dose.
