Greek Riot Police attacks highschool students on Athens University grounds on the 5 year anniversary of the murder of 15 year old Alexis Grigoropoulos by a policeman.
Greece: On December 6, 2013, following a big protest in the center of Athens by highschool students, on the 5 years anniversary of the murder of 15 year old Alexis Grigoropoulos by a policeman in 2008, the Greek Riot Police attacked the protest at its end on Athens University grounds, that until recently was under asylum status.
Then, in an attempt to humilate them, surrounded the entrapped students and began to frisk them again and again. Even a traffic policeman took part in the frisking!
December 6 marks the day where, Alexis Grigoropoulos, a 15 year old boy was shot dead by a policeman in the Exarchia area of Athens, Greece in 2008, a moment in time that turned into a wildfire of riots that quickly spread across the country and shook Greece for more than a month, stayed in history as the December Revolt, inspired solidarity actions all over the globe and influenced the resistance movements around the world in the years that followed.
Since then December 6 remains in history as a symbolic day of protest and resistance against the State and Police Brutality.
