Description

A protest rally was held on Glystra beach in southern Rhodes on September 5, 2021 against an illegal development. The controversial construction, apparently a beach bar/restaurant, apparently commenced in February 2021, in winter and during quarantine, so as to go undetected. Such illegal constructions used to be the rule on many popular Greek beaches however central authorities, and to a lesser extent local authorities, have become more determined to stop such practices in recent years.
