Athens May 11, 2011. Police fired teargas at dozens of youths hurling stones in central Athens on Wednesday and a strike against austerity brought much of Greece to a halt during talks on the next slice of a bailout package.
The capital Athens turned violent with riot police using tear gas and stun grenades to disperse youths throwing stones and petrol bombs during a march attended by some 20,000 people to protest the Greek government's harsh austerity measures.
Peaceful protests in Thessaloniki. There were no reports of violence
Nice pics today! Thx!
This is definately the most professional salute that I've ever seen
