This is true. Because protests happen so often, people in the city are prepared and there are always police blocking off the general area so you won't just stumble upon a protest and get caught in the middle if you don't want toI’m only an outsider, but generally protests in Greece are a lot more orderly than one might expect. Admittedly these anti-vax protests have gotten out of hand, but if you chance upon any protest, there’ll be plenty of warning because of police presence and you can usually detour around it.
Im not quite sure what people are actually afraid of. I know that there are many protests going on in the US which is also because people don't like being told what to do. So much of the Greek economy depends on tourism that everything is open now, so best to get vaccinated so that people don't get super sickI live in Sydney. Stupidest thing anyone can do during a pandemic is protest. I have a school friend who lives in Athens - Athens had 188 days of very strict lockdown. Why would you not want to get vaccinated? Is it just a case of "Greeks being Greeks" ? Because vaccinations are compulsory (in other words Greeks being told what to do). Why not have a protest and spread Delta to everyone you love. Patisqua
