This is a innovative ramp designed to allow people with mobility problems access into the sea for a swim. In Nea Makri, other beach users protested the ramp saying that
It bothers us
Really? It bothers you! You, who have no problem going to and enjoying this beautiful beach, protested so much that it is being removed! I am utterly disgusted that able-bodied bathers have been able to deny access to this public beach to others because it “bothers them“.
I am also disgusted that the authorities have allowed themselves to be bullied into removing this invaluable equipment. The residents also said it was useless! And that nobody uses it. Would you use this ramp if you faced residents objections and vitriol because of it?
Disgusted, disgusted, disgusted. There’s nothing else to say.
