Riot by black bloc

October 30, 2018

Following protest by students, a riot by black bloc.

It materialised out of nowhere and as rapidly dispersed.  Then Athens returned to normality.

First ATM machines were smashed, then traffic lights, rocks and bombs thrown, bins dragged into the middle of the street ad set ablaze.

Why the riot I do not know. There certainly was a lot of anger and seemingly mindless violence. This a country that has been brutally destroyed by EU. When I tell people the garbage that is spouted by supporters of EU in England they start laughing.

Report from Reuters false on several counts

  • not Syntagma
  • no riot police
  • no tear gas
  • no journalists
  • not students

I was in the middle of it. There were no riot police. They held back. It was not students, it was black bloc.
