Thessaloniki – About 250 nationalist protesters gathered in Greece’s second-largest city Sunday to denounce the ratification of a deal to normalize relations with neighboring Macedonia, jeering at “traitor politicians” as some public officials left a concert hall after an International Holocaust Remembrance Day performance.

The protest outside the Thessaloniki Concert Hall was timed to coincide with Greek President Prokopis Pavlopoulos’ attendance at the concert. A few were seen making Nazi salutes while singing Greece’s national anthem.

The protesters are angry at Pavlopoulos for not weighing in on the agreement with Macedonia. Under the deal, the small country is being renamed North Macedonia and Greece is lifting objections to its NATO membership.
