March marking anniversary of 1973 Polytechnic uprising
The march marking the 42nd anniversary of the 1973 Polytechnic uprising arrived outside the U.S. embassy in Athens on Tuesday, where participants sang the national anthem while holding the Greek flag.
They then folded it and left, followed by the main body of the march.
The embassy, where the march ends annually, was heavily guarded along with other foreign delegations, following the terrorist attacks in Paris. Police has deployed around 6,000 officers to secure the march and potential targets.
Earlier, the group of youths carrying the flag paused for a few minutes outside the French embassy in central Athens to pay their respects to the victims of the terrorist attacks.
