(en) Greece, Athens, Media, Protest Against the Olympics

ATHENS, Greece (AP) -- About 150 people staged a protest Tuesday against the Athens
Games and the security measures planned to keep the Aug. 13-29 Olympics safe.
Giant black banners unfurled near Athens University read, "The Olympics are about bribes,
doping and concrete. These are the Olympic ideals," or "No participation in the Olympic plague."
Anti-Olympic protests, generally small and nonviolent, have become a regular sight in Athens.
Anarchist and anti-globalization groups argue the games are purely commercial, have produced
public works and venues that harm the environment and have given police license to impose
oppressive security measures. More than 50,000 police and soldiers will patrol Athens during the
Olympics, and the government will impose restrictions on public demonstrations.
Tuesday's gathering, watched at a distance by riot squads, dispersed peacefully.
