We were informed us that our demands would be taken into the parliament.
But around 1:40am 17 peaceful protesters were surrounded by riot police who took our IDs, insisting we go into their bus.
We had committed no crime, and there was not enough space for social distancing.
We had to chose between walking to the police station or be taken by force.
There was no will for non-violent civil disobedience, so we willingly walked, being bullied by 50 riot police and motorbikes.

After the People's Assembly that was held during the protest in Syntagma square, it was decided by a group of citizens to stay in front of the Greek Parliament for as long as it takes. We demand from the @ypen_gr to "Withdraw the environmental law immediately".We stay awake, we respect the social distancing.We call determined citizens to come and join us and to share our action so as to strengthen our demand.

In Greece the government wants to pass a new bill in the next 5 days, with a practically shut down parliament. This bill takes back all the regulations safeguarding the environment and also makes extremely dangerous projects go forward.
