United hooligans and anarchists from Greece in clashes at demos to remember teen killed by police 06.12.2014

ATHENS, Greece – United hooligans in Greece for the demonstrations to mark the sixth anniversary of the death of a teenager at the hands of police descended into violence Saturday, December 6, with officers using tear gas and water cannon against protesters throwing stones and Molotov cocktails.

Hooligans and anarchists in central Athens set fire to bins. Much of the violence took place in the Exarcheia district, where 15-year-old Alexis Grigoropoulos was killed by a policeman in 2008.

Organizers said some 10 000 people, fans of Panathinaikos, AEK and Olympiakos took to the streets of the capital to remember the anniversary, while police put the figure at half that.

Police said late Saturday they had made more than 200 arrests. There were no immediate reports of any injuries.

There were also clashes in Greece’s second city of Thessaloniki, where some 6 000 people, PAOK and Aris supporters took to the streets. Violence was also reported at rallies in several other cities.
