|Protest in Athens in support of pensioner Ioanna Kolovou (Right)|
Yesterday morning, at 5.30 so as to avoid any resistance they broke the door of her home and demanded that the old woman leave immediately, not even allowing her to take her coat.
Immediately people from the neighborhood and cadres of PAME arrived and blocked the procedure. They did not allow for the seizure and transfer of the woman’s belongings and brought the woman back to her home. PAME immediately called for a protest of support and solidarity in front of the apartment with hundreds arriving in short notice.
