(en) Greece: Anarchists Riot Against the Government Harsh Economic Policies (video)

Date Fri, 16 Sep 2005 22:05:30 +0300

Video from the dynamic reaction by anarchists against the harsh
greek government's policies, especially in relation to the economy,
employment and suppression of personal rights and liberties.
A 1000 people strong anarchist block took part in an anti-government
demonstration along with workers’ unions and left wing parties. The
demo took place in Salonica outside the Annual International Economic
Exhibition building in which the prime minister was giving a speech on
his governments’ new employment policies as long as his new anti-terrorist
plans. The anarchists waited for the demo to end so as not to interfere with
the peaceful protesters and then decided that a more direct action was needed.
Consequently, (at the same time in both cities of
Salonica and Athens) they attacked several banks and
the governing party’s offices. In retaliation the riot
police immediately started firing volleys of teargas
and charged against the demonstrators, resulting to a
fierce clash that broke out and lasted the whole of
the night between the anarchists and other
demonstrators that joined them and the police.
