ATHENS, Greece — The an­cient Acrop­o­lis in Athens and most of Greece’s arche­o­log­i­cal sites and pub­licly run museums were closed be­cause of a 24-hour strike called by a Cul­ture Min­istry union. Tourists gath­ered on Thurs­day out­side the Acrop­o­lis, un­aware of the strike. The union has ac­cused the gov­ern­ment of fail­ing to ex­empt the trans­fer of na­tional her­itage sites to a pow­er­ful pri­va­ti­za­tion fund.
