Tension & tear-gas during the rally in Athens
Τension and use of tear-gas by the police shortly after 12:30 on Wednesday afternoon during the 24-hour strike rally.

When the students saw the police force, they attacked them and they responded with the use of chemicals.
Also, anarchists attacked protesters gathered at Klathymonos square to take part in the protest of GSEE and ADEDY in the framework of the 24-hour strike. They threw them eggs and tried to destroy banners and break speakers.
After the swift attack, the anarchists escaped to the narrow streets around the square.
