Protesters hurled molotov cocktails at riot police who fired back with tear gas near the National Technical University of Athens on Thursday, following the Greek authorities’ decision to ban both groups’ gatherings in an effort to quell further clashes. Police POASY union had called for an open public meeting in the Exarcheia neighbourhood in order to discuss attacks on police, while groups of protesters organised a counter demonstration in the adjacent area of Kolonaki, which also claimed to be meeting against violence.

  1. Leftist scumbags at it again with the blessings of the ruling party. They ruined that district(Exarchia)…police can't touch them, citizens are totally unprotected and hope nothing hits them.

  2. So this is what old Byzantium has been reduced to…average prols fighting against law enforcement loyal to the government that promised to save their citizenry from euroslavery,only to betray them at the last minute…

    Quite depressing,really…

  3. Homes in the area are going for $1,000 but property taxes are $10,000 a year featuring nightly live Purge enactments… Liberalism at it's finest
