Athens ALANYA motorway toll action

Slideshow

Members of the Solidarity, Disobedience and Resistance movement (ALANYA) carry out an action at the hated Athens motorway toll. The toll was introduced to pay for the road. The activists argued that the toll was illegal as the road had been paid for many times over. So they regularly close several lanes and then wave traffic through the remaining open ones without paying. The actions usually go unchallenged by the authorities and are extremely popular with motorists.
