Still quite a few small wobbles just south west of Zakynthos.

News finally reached Athens, ekathimerini report doesn't add much. Last i heard, the husband had been airlifted to hospital in Patras. Police still searching for motive and killers.

Backlash grows over Greek energy deregulation law
Campaigners fear damage to protected regions by companies exploiting their resources

The Greek government is facing growing opposition over a controversial environmental super-law passed when debate and public consultation were curtailed by lockdown measures imposed as a result of the pandemic.

Resistance has intensified as part of a grassroots revolt over legislation that critics contend will irrevocably change the face of Greece.

Opponents argue the sweeping legislation allows wind parks to be installed on rocky isles, and protected areas of world-class biodiversity and beauty to be exploited by the oil and gas industry.

As the country increasingly adopts renewable energy, international companies are lining up to exploit its natural resources, including by placing industrial-sized turbines on windswept Aegean islands and mainland mountain ridges. For firms behind the proliferation of solar plants, Greeceā€™s plentiful sun can be harnessed year round.
