Hundreds flooded the centre of Thessaloniki protesting against the US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo’s visit as part of a five-day tour through Europe, Monday.
Protesters were seen holding various anti-Pompeo banners, as they marched over a banner resembling the US flag to the US consulate.
Babis Velis, one of the protesters, said, “Today’s protest is taking place to declare that the American minister, Pompeo, is unwanted in our city and in our country. Pompeo is coming to visit the Souda military base, to see the US war machine, if it is OK in comparison to the big competition they have with Russia and China.”
Pompeo is expected to depart Greece and head to Rome on Wednesday, September 30.
