The Foreign Ministry of the Former Yugoslav Republic of Macedonia has issued a travel warning over the Macedonia rallies in several Greek cities. FYROM is urging its citizens planning to travel to Greece on June 6th 2018, to avoid the cities where the rallies will be held “because they could be in danger.”

Rallies to protest a name solution including the term “Macedonia” will be held in at least 14 cities and towns mainly in Northern Greece but also on several islands like Kos, Rhodes and Crete (Chania).

Kos.

The rallies are scheduled to start at 7:30 pm Wednesday.

The rallies are supported by many municipalities and local high-ranking clergymen.

No rallies will be held in Athens and Thessaloniki.

The date for the rally was set on June 6th because organizers had assumed this would be the date where the Greek Parliament would vote to approve the agreement with FYROM. However, Skopje has not given  its consent yet.
