Description

On Saturday 9 July 2016 during a gig at the Polytechnic School of Athens in the Exarcheia neighborhood of Athens, a group of anarchists attacked the riot police brigades that had the area surrounded. Whilst the financial crisis deepens in Greece with harsh austerity measures being continuously imposed for the last 7 years and 24,1% unemployment (50,4% amongst young people) outbursts of rage and angst are not uncommon especially in Exarchia neighborhood, known for its long subversive political history.
