Traf­fic will be dis­rupted in down­town Athens today and to­mor­row to make way for cel­e­bra­tions mark­ing the March 25 an­niver­sary of Greek in­de­pen­dence from Turk­ish rule in 1821. Stu­dents all over the coun­try will be hold­ing pa­rades today, fol­lowed by a pa­rade of the armed forces to­mor­row cen­tered around Syn­tagma Square. To clear the cen­ter for the main Athens stu­dent pa­rade, Traf­fic Police will cor­don off key cen­tral thor­ough­fares in­clud­ing Vas­silis­sis Amalias, Vas­sileos Ge­or­giou I, Panepis­timiou and Vas­silis­sis Ol­gas from 9.30 a.m. un­til the end of the pa­rade. Vas­silis­sis Sofias, Sta­diou and Syn­grou will be closed off in sec­tions. To­mor­row, it will be al­most im­pos­si­ble to ap­proach the city cen­ter from 6 a.m. un­til the end of the mil­i­tary pa­rade, as streets around both Syn­tagma and Omo­nia squares will be closed to traf­fic.
