Clashes in protest against IMF in Athens

Minor clashes occurred during the protest as a small number of hooded protesters lit up garbage and threw stones at the police.

However, when the protesters were heading to the Athens Polytechnic on Patision Avenue, a motorcycled police force charged the crowd without obvious reason and started beating a female protester of American citizenship. She was knocked semi-unconscious and was hospitalised.

On Wednesday a mass protest is expected as it is the anniversary of the Athens Polytechnic Uprising
