Greece general strike: youths throw Molotov cocktails to police in Athens


Demonstrations in Greece turned violent as 25,000 youths started to throw Molotov cocktails to police, who responded with tear gas and stun grenades.

Political situation in Greece is critical since socialist party Syriza was forced to adopt liberal and conservative economy measures that made their popularity drop to minimums. European Union won the battle against Syriza, still in power, and spending cuts, worse retirement wages, public services going private and high unemployement are the reason of today’s demonstration again this policies and against Greek’s weak government.

Meanwhile, Syriza president and Greece President Alexis Tsipras, still showed sympathy for the strike.
