According to Reuters, police fired tear gas to disperse protesters outside parliament on Sunday as tens of thousands of Greeks rallied in Athens to protest against a name deal with Macedonia. Thousands came from all over the country to rally against the accord to name the ex-Yugoslav state North Macedonia. Many Greeks believe the name Macedonia implies a territorial claim over their country’s own northern region of that name. The accord, signed by the two governments, unblocks the ex-Yugoslav republic’s desire to join NATO and the European Union.
