Greece -Mine closure leads to grave dispute -August 24, 2015

Workers at a Canadian-run gold mine in northern Greece staged a counter-protest against its threatened closure, a day after scuffles broke out at a demonstration by activists opposed to the project. About 200 workers gathered at two sites in the scenic Halkidiki region, briefly blocking roads in protest at a government decision that Canadian Eldorado Gold said put all 2,000 jobs at the site at risk. The police arrested two union leaders who were charged with disrupting transportation and later on released.
