A large black banner with the words ”No to lay-offs” is flying over the Athens Acropolis this morning. The banner is the result of ongoing protests by Culture Ministry employees with temporary contracts who over the past few weeks had shut down Greece’s most important archaeological site. However, this time around the Acropolis is staying open. Employees with temporary contracts are demanding the payment of arrears and the cancellation of lay-offs called for as part of the anti-crisis plan. They have announced protests to continue indefinitely if the government does not heed their requests.
