Athens lawyers to march on Parliament


The Athens Bar Association (DSA) has called on its members to join a demonstration on Thursday to protest the government’s pension reform proposals.

The union asked members to gather at its headquarters in central Athens and march to Parliament, where they would deliver a resolution.

The protesters will pass the Labor Ministry on the way.

The DSA said the implementation of the coalition’s proposed measures proposed would lead to the “economic and professional death of the vast majority of lawyers.”

Lawyers are currently on a three-day strike that is due to end on Thursday.
