Friends of animals event in Argostoli main square this Sunday afternoon, 08/05/22, organised by Ministry of Education approved teacher Katerina Papapostolou who fosters improved human - animal relations in schools. Event is probably to be conducted in Greek, might be worth a look if you're in the area.

Looks as though the poster is based on the cover of Katerina Papapostolou's latest book, proceeds of which go to animal welfare:




Edit: poster updated

On Thursday 12 May, major anti-NATO protests are planned in Athens and several other towns and cities in Greece. These are likely to be disruptive from approximately 6pm. You should expect heavier than usual traffic and severe delays.

In Athens, protesters are expected to gather from around 6pm... In other areas of Greece, protests are scheduled to take place at (all times local):

8pm - Cephalonia

Not usually any major disruptions, maybe traffic a little slower than usual in Argostoli.
