Agencies and inhabitants of the city of Igoumenitsa, north western Greece, blockaded the port's central gate at 17:00 on Tuesday, protesting over the acute immigration problem they are facing in their region and having as their main slogan "We are demanding a solution for the inhabitants and the illegal immigrants."
Igoumenitsa Mayor George Katsinos, speaking to the ANA-MPA, said "we want the government to deal with the problem and schedule a solution, because the people have reached their limits and have exhausted their endurances."
