Greek Anarchists Strike in Athens, Three Riot Cops Hurt

November 8, 2019

ATHENS – After mostly lying low while police scoured through the Greek capital neighborhood they had dominated, anarchists tangled with riot police, tosssing Molotov Cocktails in a street fight that saw three officers injured by the fire bombs.

The gang of about 25 set on the police shortly after 10 p.m. On Nov. 7, said Kathimerini, with one of the injured police officers released from a hospital while a second was being treated for burns and a third for a head injury although it wasn’t said how severe.
Police questioned 17 people over the attack and arrested one suspect, identified as one of the oldest and most active members of the anarchist group Rouvikonas (Greek for Rubicon) the newspaper said.

The Union of the Hellenic Police’s special guards denounced the attack in a post on Facebook, saying that the assailants were intent on “burning [the officers] alive” in the the strongest confrontation in the neighborhood after Prime Minister and New Democracy leader Kyriakos Mitsotakis had police go in to stop lawlessness, round up drug dealers and empty abandoned buildings of squatters, most occupied by unlawful migrants living in them.
