  • [01] Violence mars protests

    (ANA-MPA) -- Three people were injured and taken to nearby hospitals for first aid following clashes between so-called "anti-establishment" youths with riot police outside the gates of the Athens University's (Propylaea) old administration building on Monday afternoon.

    The incidents came during demonstrations commemorating the second anniversary of the fatal shooting of 16-year-old teenager Alexis Grigoropoulos by a police officer in 2008.

    Authorities said the three people injured included a man beaten by hooded youths who suspected him of being a plain-clothes police officer, a woman suffering from shock after a flare exploded next to her at the junction of Ippokratous and Panepistimiou streets and a man found injured in unknown circumstances on a street corner.

    The march from the neo-classical Propylea building to Parliament was marred by self-styled anarchist youth attempting to break storefronts and throwing petrol bombs. (ANA-MPA)

    (ANA-MPA) -- Greek President Karolos Papoulias on Monday received an All-China Federation of Trade Unions (ACFTU) delegation accompanied by World Federation of Trade Unions (WFTU) General Secretary Giorgos Mavrikos.

    Papoulias referred to the contribution of the Chinese workers to the Far East country's impressive economic growth underlining, at the same time, the role of farmers.

    Commenting on the cooperation between Greece and China at the port of Piraeus, he expressed satisfaction because "a dynamic part of China works in Piraeus and has major development plans". He also pointed out that this is the "first time Chinese workers have had a presence in Greece", (ANA-MPA) adding that "cooperation between Greek and Chinese workers is on the right track and has very good future".

    ACFTU Vice-Chairperson and 1st Secretary of the ACFTU Secretariat Wang Yu Pu characterised Papoulias as "a friend of China", while he referred to the excellent relations shared by his country and Greece -- reaffirmed recently by visits of both China's president and premier to Greece. (ANA-MPA)
