Protesters clash with cops as demo against name-change deal turns violent in Thessaloniki

A protest against the Prespes Agreement in the Greek city of Thessaloniki resulted in chaos on Sunday, with clashes between demonstrators and police taking place outside Thessaloniki Concert Hall.

The protest was held two days after the Greek Parliament narrowly passed a bill approving Macedonia’s name change to the Republic of North Macedonia to distinguish Greece’s northern neighbour from the Greek territory with the same name.
