Tens of thousands of Greeks took to the streets of Thessaloniki to protest against the use of the name “Macedonia” in a solution to a dispute between Greece and the Former Yugoslav Republic of Macedonia (FYROM).

The footage, captured on January 21, shows protesters waving Greek flags and holding banners reading “There is only one Macedonia and it is Greek!” as they march in the streets of the northern Greek city.

The rally comes amid a new United Nations-buffered push for a solution on the name spat.
