Shopkeepers, restaurants owners and bar workers blocked traffic in the Greek city of Thessaloniki in the early hours of Sunday (September 27th) morning in protest at COVID-19 laws forcing them to close the businesses at midnight.

Scores of protesters gathered in the city centre after closing early to call for the measures to be scrapped.

"We are not leaving, open the shops," they chanted as they blocked some of the cities' busiest thoroughfares.
