Greece: police motorcycle gangs attack demonstrators

 

An estimated 35,000 people took to the streets of Athens on Monday to commemorate the anniversary of the Polytechnic anti-junta ​uprising in 1973. Another 10,000 occupied the streets of Greece’s second largest city, Thessalonica. Police attacked both rallies and around a dozen demonstrators were injured.

After the main march in Athens had ended the police on motorbikes used tear gas in the Exarheia district to disperse crowds. A journalist from MegaTV was also attacked by police.

Two weeks ago there were ​occupations by students across Greece and last week saw attacks by police on university students.
