It seems that the inhabitants of Greece can no longer be in the tight grip of quarantine, young people want to communicate. And this is vitally important to her.
Apparently, therefore, more than a thousand people took part in an open-air party, which took place on Saturday evening at Chemiou Square (Aristotle University) in Thessaloniki.
According to thestival, students and passers-by joined different large groups, chatted, listened to loud music, drank drinks. Most of those present were not wearing masks.
The arrival of the participants at the “crown party” began on Saturday afternoon and lasted until midnight. The fun lasted until the early morning of Sunday 4th April.
The outfits of the ΕΛΑΣ policemen kept a close eye on the gathering of people, keeping their distance. Groups patrolling the center of Thessaloniki were ordered not to pass by Chemiou Square, so as not to provoke an incident.
Young people have gone “beyond what was permitted” partly because, by a government decision, shops open in Attica (relative freedom of movement is given), but not in Thessaloniki. The boys and girls, who are pretty tired of sitting at home, suddenly “felt” the approach of spring and no longer intend to live far from each other.
This is the rationale behind the night party, which, fortunately (or by someone’s wise decision), did without incidents and police brutality. But easily everything could have ended differently, as, for example, recently in the Nea Smyrni area (Athens) when the police used force in order to disperse those who came out to bask in the sun of local residents.
