Greek Police Bust Protest at Energy Company, Arrest 10 Workers

December 22, 2021

KAVALA, Greece – Ten workers were arrested after police moved to break a sit-down protest at the Energean Kavala facilities in northern Greece, with reports there was also sabotage at the company, which sued the leadership of the workers union.

Company officials asked for police intervention, said Kathimerini, which resulted in a clash with the workers who reportedly used two fire engines and improvised weapons to attack the officers.

“The employees intentionally leaked hydrogen sulfide that endangers both human life and public health,” stated the Hellenic Police, adding that the arrests were made after workers occupied a tower on the grounds and refused to leave unless those arrested were released.

The police said most of the facility had been turned back over the operation of the management but no reason for the protest was reported.
