The capital of Greece was gripped by mass protests against the new law

 

The new law could prohibit planned protests if the Greek prosecutor’s office saw them as a threat of unrest.

Greek citizens have protested in Athens against the new law on demonstrations. Peaceful protests escalated into clashes with law enforcement. They used tear gas against the protesters.

The new law can ban planned protests if the Greek prosecutor’s office sees them as a threat of unrest. According to the rules of the document, to hold any demonstration, you have to file an application. And the organizers have to commit themselves to ensuring the peaceful conduct of the action. Otherwise, they may be held accountable. Trade unions associated with the opposition political forces have called for mass actions.

But the Greek Prime Minister is sure that the new law will guarantee public safety.
