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.

On Monday 04/04 the anti-environmental law is being brought to the Parliament.

Come and join as in a non-violent demonstration at 17.00 at Syntagma Square. Present will be tens of environmental movements, collectives and organizations. Follow health protection guidelines!

A Citizen's Assembly will follow with environmental topics and how to move forward as an environmental and social movement.

On 1st of May we protested alongside other movements and collectives agaisnt the disastrous new environmental law that the minister of environment and energy will bring to the parliament on Monday 04/05.
We followed the health protection guidelines.
