Greek Protests Turn Violent Over Austerity Measures

Location: Athens, Greece
December 15, 2010

Protestors clash with riot police during a demonstration called by labour unions, in Athens, Greece on 15 December 2010.  Violent clashes broke out in Athens between riot police protesters who went on a rampage burning cars, trashing luxury hotels and setting a post office on fire. The clashes broke out as some 20,000 protesters marched to parliament during a nationwide strike, the seventh this year, against new labour reforms in the debt-ridden country.
