Police union says will go ahead with rally in Exarchia unless it is ordered to cancel

Greek police’s union POASY said on Wednesday it will go ahead with the planned protest rally on Exarchia square, unless they are ordered to call it off.

“We continue normally our preparation for the rally we have planned for tomorrow [Thursday] at 18:00 on Exarchia square. If, however, there is a decision forbidding the rally we will obey, as we have given an oath to obey the law,” POASY president Grigoris Gerakarakos told the Athens-Macedonian News Agency, adding that the scheduled rally is “within the framework of democratic dialog.”
