Kathimerini English - - Front Page -

The City of Athens will con­tinue ef­forts to keep the Greek cap­i­tal free of un­sightly graf­fiti and so-called “tag­ging” sig­na­tures, the deputy mayor for san­i­ta­tion, An­dreas Vare­las, said yes­ter­day, warn­ing tag­gers not to “bother writ­ing on the walls we have al­ready cleaned.”

Vare­las said that all walls cleaned since the start of City Hall’s cam­paign in the sum­mer have been painted over with a spe­cial emul­sion that is eas­ier to clean of spray paint and mark­ers. He also said that the cam­paign, which the mu­nic­i­pal­ity runs with the help of cit­i­zens’ groups and pro­fes­sion­als in the build­ings af­fected, will con­tinue this year.

Cleanup crews will start the year fo­cus­ing on the marred walls of his­tor­i­cal build­ings on Sta­diou Street near Omo­nia Square.
