Hundreds of Artists and Culture-Sector Workers Protest in Syntagma

ATHENS – Hundreds of artists and people employed in the broader culture sector, wearing face masks and gloves, gathered opposite the Greek parliament to protest on Thursday, demanding support and a real solution to the problems they face as a result of the pandemic.

Actors, singers, technicians, artists, musicians, and staff from music and dance schools pointed out that "culture can only be saved when people are saved" and stressed the need to treat all branches of the arts equally.

In an announcement, the unions of artists that organised the protest pointed out that the pandemic first impacted the arts and culture sector long before the lockdown was imposed, as well as highlighting the contribution of the sector to keeping morale within society high.
