Greece on Sunday braced for demonstrations to mark the anniversary of a teenager's killing by a policeman, with authorities on the alert to avert a
repeat of riots that tore through several cities last year.
Over 6,000 police will be on duty in Athens alone as thousands set to join protest marches in the capital and other cities commemorating 15-year-old
Alexis Grigoropoulos' fatal shooting exactly a year ago.
Sources have indicated that the 6,000 police are actually numbering 10,000 and another 1,000 in plain clothes will be placed to interact with the
Saturday night, anti terror units raided strong holds were 20 members of an anarchists group were arrested. They nationalities were Italin, Albanian,
Spanish and non confirmed former Eastern Block. Some 200 molotov cocktails were ceased and a laptop which was partially damaged by the group once they
realized they were being raided. Reports from Interpol had warned Greece that various anti government units have traveled and are located in Athens
for Sunday nights march.
You can view in about 8 hrs from the time of this post live tv through the following link which will be covering the march. In my opinion, naturally
there will be some violence as yesterday saw a police officer almost beaten to death with hammers and crowbars but was saved from the general civilian
population who intervened at the last minute. He is now in hospital in a critical but stable condition.
I do believe the last link will be more worth your while watching in about 8hrs from now.
