Hundreds of people gathered in central Athens to protest against plans to increase Sunday trading hours in a rally organised by unions and communist groups. SundayÎ„s demonstration largely drew members of the PAME alongside others representing small- and medium-sized businesses (SMEs) who oppose reforms demanded by GreeceÎ„s international creditors.
Shops in Greece are currently compelled to open on the first Sunday of every month in a step imposed three years ago by the countryÎ„s creditors.
The reform would increase the number of Sundays from 12 times a year to 30.
