Who are the protesters in Greece? | WHAT REALLY HAPPENED


Who are the protesters in Greece?

The fatal police shooting of a teenager in Athens on Saturday and its violent aftermath are in many ways a spill over of a decades-long conflict that has simmered between police and far-left anarchist groups.

The violence has also laid bare a deeper anger that has been gaining ground in Greece over the government's policies in slashing budget deficits and pushing on with unpopular reforms such as privatisations.

This anger has been exacerbated by a series of financial and political scandals among prominent members of the government of Costas Karamanlis, Greece's prime minister.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I knew there was more going on than just that shooting.
