Locals wants landfill closed
Residents of the areas surrounding the capital’s main landfill at Fyli, northwestern Attica, will hold a demonstration in the central square of Ano Liosia on Wednesday to demand its removal. Locals accuse authorities of having led them on, by saying for years that the landfill will be moved. “With the money wasted by local authorities throughout Attica, and especially the ones in areas near the landfill, they could have created one of the most advanced waste disposal systems in Attica,” said the organizers of the demonstration. Instead, they said, authorities have tried to buy off people with false promises that it will be shut down.
