Protesters throw stones against riot police during protest march over squat raid

Protesters threw stones and pieces of marble against riot police during a march in Athens to protest the police evacuation of a squat in the area of Zografou earlier on Monday. Riot police responded with stun grenades.

The march organized by members of leftist groups started from Gardenias square and was heading to “Villa Zografou”, a building which had been occupied by anti-establishment groups since 2012.

Police also raided a second building on Alkiviadou Street which was used by about 100 refugees and migrants, who were transferred to another location.
