Two separate protests were held in central Athens on Thursday evening protesting about the causes of the Pylos shipwreck tragedy.

Workers' unions gathered at Syntagma Square while leftist and antiracist organizations gathered at Propilea on Panepistimiou Street, before marching through the city center.

Via megaphones organizers referred to "the right to asylum and the failure of migration policy", but also "to the criminal traffickers who exploit migrants and refugees", expressing their solidarity with the victims.
