'I won't pay' movement strikes in the Peloponnese

The Coordinating Committee of the 'I won't pay' movement for the Peloponnese on Thursday announced plans for an organised protest at road tolls throughout the Peloponnese at 3:00 p.m. on Sunday, defying the government's attempts to criminalise the civil disobedience movement.

In addition to Sunday's protest, there is separate protest at road tolls in the Peloponnese on Thursday organised by PAME, the trade union faction affiliated to the Communist Party of Greece (KKE) that is raising bars at road tolls to allow drivers through without paying.

Representatives of the movement said they would continue to fight against what they consider unfair and unjust laws that allowed contractors exploiting roads to charge exorbitant road tolls.

"When injustice becomes a law of the state, then disobedience to those laws is not only justified but an obligation of the citizens," they stressed.
