Golden Dawn shuts down tool booths for Easter Sunday

Golden Dawn took control of twelve toll booths, apparently by force, for Easter Sunday [Greek Orthodox Calendar] and gave everyone free passage. The toll booths operate on privately owned roads. The owner is Ellaktor Construction. Even though Ellaktor Construction received tax money from both Greece and the EU to build the roads, they own the road and can set their own tolls. [Similar to many US sports stadiums] Golden Dawn says that increases in tolls have crippled travel in Greece and done further harm to the economy.

The groups wanted to help the nation visit relatives on Easter.

Last week, one Greek city dispatched riot police to block Golden Dawn from passing out free food to the poor.
