Clashes Erupt At Greece Anti Austerity Protest

Greek police fired teargas at hooded youths hurling petrol bombs and stones as tens of thousands took to the streets in Greece’s biggest anti-austerity demonstration in months on Wednesday.

The clashes occurred after more than 50,000 people marched to parliament chanting β€œWe won’t submit to the troika (of lenders)” and β€œEU, IMF Out!” on a day of strikes against a new round of cuts demanded by EU and IMF lenders.
