Anti-agreement protests to take place in Thessaloniki

- Organizations of Greek expats and the 'committees fighting for Macedonia' will stage on September 8 a protest in Thessaloniki against the name deal as Greece's second largest city starts hosting the annual international fair.

The same groups organized the mass protests in Thessaloniki and Athens early this year, MIA reports from Athens.

"Macedonia won't be given away. Macedonians signed nothing. The Prespa Agreement is invalid," organizers say urging people to take to the streets of Thessaloniki on Saturday against 'the Slavisation of Macedonian Hellenism, which leads to Greek territories breaking away."

This coming weekend, all eyes will be on the Thessaloniki International Fair (TIF), which is traditionally declared open by the prime minister. In his speech, Alexis Tsipras will present the agenda of the government in the coming period. On Sunday, PM Tsipras will hold a news conference.

In addition to the protest against the name agreement, Greek trade unions have also announced demonstrations against government policies.

Police security is expected to be heightened across Thessaloniki.
