Tens of thousands demonstrators on the streets, more than 2000 with the anarchist blocks, not well organized though. Massive clashes around Syntagma and throughout central Athens. Few cops had their shields taken, and some cops in plain clothes were beaten. Some slogans were also spray painted in solidarity to the Buenos Aires comrades.

Delta and Zeta motorbike cops attacked people leaving the march at Syggrou-Fix metro station with batton charges, light-bang grenades and massive tear gas use leading to one elder person with resporatory problems, sitting at a nearby cafe, heavily injured.

The police used tear gas canisters even inside metro stations (Syntagma).

Also full police cordon around Exarchia. Dozens taken to GADA police headquarters. Many people are still out on the streets.
