Metro station ‘Panepistimio’ to close on Tuesday for Afrin rally

The metro station “Panepistimio” will remain closed from 18:30 onwards on Tuesday following a police order, due to a planned rally in solidarity to the northern Syrian city of Afrin.

The rally, which will start from Propylea, is organized by Popular Unity, along with Cypriot organizations and Kurds living in the country. Trains will pass from the station without stopping.

Earlier, anti-establishment protesters unfurled a banner in front of the Turkish Airlines check-in desk in “Macedonia Airport”, which read “Defend Afrin” to condemn the Turkish invasion in the city, and threw flyers calling for a rally and solidarity march on March 22, in Kamara, at 18:00.
