Five people protesting Sunday store openings in Greece were detained after they tried to keep customers from getting into an Athens’ bookstore.

Protesters angry that the government is allowing stores to open on Sunday formed a human chain outside the Ianos bookstore and engaged in a scuffle with police.

The local bookstore employees’ association called for the protest as stores opened for the third consecutive Sunday, angering workers who want the day off.

Ianos issued a statement slamming the union for singling out the bookstore when other shops selling books also opened on Sunday.

Ianos said it was simply complying with the government’s decision for shops to open. “Nobody [from the government] asked the management or employees of Ianos,” said the management. Ianos is one of the main bookstores in the capital.
