Clashes Between Activists and Tour Guides in Acropolis

    stop_crimeClashes occurred on Tuesday morning on the sacred rock of the Acropolis in Athens, Greece, between tour guides and activists protesting against the war in Gaza.

    The activists hung a banner which read: “Stop Israel Crime at Gaza”. According to reports, tour guides who were in the area attempted to prevent the activists. The conflict resulted in the light injury of a tour guide who intends to file a lawsuit. Greek Police rushed to the site and proceeded with arrests.

    The Israel-Gaza conflict escalated in 2014 after the continued blockade of the Gaza Strip by the Israeli army since 2007 and the continued rocket attacks from Gaza. The conflict is the deadliest military operation to have taken place in Gaza, with thousands dead and injured, including children and civilians.

    According to the UN, about 2,000 Palestinians have been killed, 72% of them civilians, including 459 children and 238 women. The Israeli attacks against Palestinian shelters has caused the international condemnation of Israel.


    1. How does anyone know for certain which Palestinian adult male or female casualty is a belligerent or victim? This is purely speculation. Hamas and others placing families under the risk of reprisals by the IDF is clearly against the Geneva Convention. But that matters little to those who hope to bring their civil-religious war and 15th century values to our shores.
