Sta­tions to host home­less for third week in a row

Kathimerini English - - Front Page -

Fol­low­ing a de­ci­sion by Trans­port Min­is­ter Chris­tos Spirtzis, the home­less will be able to sleep at three cen­tral Athens metro sta­tions – Omo­nia, Mona­s­ti­raki and Me­tax­ourgeio – which will stay open around the clock for the third week in a row due to freez­ing overnight tem­per­a­tures. If nec­es­sary, the mea­sure will be en­forced again, the min­is­ter said. In a par­al­lel ini­tia­tive, City Hall has opened heated venues in dif­fer­ent parts of the cap­i­tal to en­sure that home­less cit­i­zens can shel­ter from the cold weather.
