A Thessaloniki policeman observes heaps of rubbish dumped in a city street by angry shopowners fed up with having the malodorous piles outside their premises. In a strike that seeks to capitalize on next Sunday’s municipal and prefectural elections, Thessaloniki rubbish collectors are pressing the current mayor to pay them productivity bonuses. The city council has taken them to court, asking that the strike be declared illegal.
