Police and firefighters took to the streets of Thessaloniki, the second-largest city in Greece and the capital of Greek Macedonia, to call for a number of demands including fairer pay, a fully-funded pension system and more equipment supplies. The demonstration marks the upcoming Thessaloniki International Trade Fair which Greek Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras is scheduled to attend.
