Rioting School Students Fight Greek Police in Athens Protest

October 29, 2018

ATHENS, Greece (AP) — Greek police have fired tear gas to repel rioting teenagers who attacked them with petrol bombs and stones during a protest by high school students in central Athens.

No arrests or injuries were reported from Monday’s clashes, which started outside the parliament building and continued outside the ancient site of the Temple of Olympian Zeus.

Police said some 2,000 people took part in the protest against the left-led government’s education policies, shouting slogans such as “Give money for education and not for NATO slaughter.”

Most of the trouble was caused by a couple of hundred youths wearing masks who vandalized traffic lights, public phones and public transport bus shelters.


ATHENS – Celestyal, the award-winning, number one choice for travelers to the Greek Islands and the Eastern Mediterranean, has partnered with the Disaster and Emergency Management Authority (AFAD), a Turkish government entity established to coordinate post-disaster response and to promote cooperation among various government agencies, in order to provide blankets and sleeping bags to some of the more than one million residents of Turkey who remain homeless following the 7.
