Greeks Protest. Police Attacks

Greeks protest outside the Parliament in Athens’ Constitution Square as the “Leftist” and “Nationalist” parties of SYRIZA and Independent Greeks introduce  legislation imposing new cuts in pensions, pay and social benefits, as ordered by creditors.

The Mikis Theodorakis orchestra holds a concert at the same time.

The Greek Police used its usual method for dissolving demonstrations, employing groups of provocateurs to attack policemen, providing them with the pretext they need to launch a vast counteroffensive with the use of gas. You can watch the scene at 1h15min of the above video
