Protesters with disabilities started their rally from the Health Ministry and walked to Syntagma square. Their main demand is to stop the degradation of the public health system, which leads to social euthanasia of people with disabilities.”

Vulnerable society groups  saw immense cuts in the public health sector due to Troika imposed austerity.
