On Aristotle’s Square in Thessaloniki, thousands of people yesterday said a resounding “NO” to the war in Ukraine.
Residents of the city gathered on the square on the day when the whole world celebrates the end of World War II, so the organizers of the anti-war concert did not choose this date by chance. The curtain was “lifted” by military sirens that sounded for a minute, emphasizing the disagreement of the audience with the war being waged in Ukraine.
Student associations, members of the extra-parliamentary left and trade unions of the city gathered in Aristotle Square. Banners hung out calling for an immediate cessation of hostilities.
More than 65 artists took part in the musical anti-war event – Zafiris Melas, Giorgos Dalaras, Eleni Tsaligopulu, Underground Currents and Cosa Mostra. The concert began with Pink Floyd’s Goodbye Blue Sky.
The organizers of the anti-war concert are the Association of Musicians of Northern Greece and the Panhellenic Musical Association, tells newsbeast.gr.
