Hundreds of protesters took to the streets of Athens, Greece on Wednesday to demand justice for the victims of February’s devastating train crash.
The crash, which occurred in the small town of Adendro, resulted in the deaths of four people and the injury of dozens more. Although the cause of the crash is still unknown, many believe it was due to poor maintenance of the rail system.
The protesters, many of whom were relatives of the victims, marched from the city center to the Ministry of Transport demanding justice and accountability.
They held banners reading “No More Deaths on the Tracks” and “We Demand Justice” and chanted “We are here, we are not leaving”.
The demonstration was peaceful and the protesters were joined by government officials and members of the opposition.
The protesters demanded that the government take responsibility for the crash and provide compensation to the families of the victims. They also called for an investigation into the cause of the crash and the implementation of stricter safety regulations.
The government has promised to look into the incident and take all necessary steps to ensure the safety of the rail system.
The train crash has had a devastating effect on the town of Adendro and its residents. Many of the residents are still in shock and are struggling to come to terms with the tragedy.
The protesters’ message was clear: they want justice for the victims of the crash and for the rail system to be made safer for all passengers.
