Acropolis closed for third day by protestors

The Acropolis archaeological site in Athens remained closed for a third consecutive day on Friday by protesting culture ministry contract employees demanding tenure and 22 months in outstanding back pay, while a strong police contingent also remained in place.
After scuffles erupted, riot police (MAT) used teargas on Thursday to disperse the protestors after scuffles erupted, who have chain-locked the entrance to Greece’s most famous archaeological site, in an operation to reopen the site after a lawsuit filed by the local police precinct chief with an Athens prosecutor, who gave the go-ahead for the operation.
Tension increased on Friday morning when police allowed a couple of tourists to enter the site, eliciting strong protests from the demonstrators.
