Anarchists, Police Fight for 2 Hours in Central Athens

Friday night in central Athens saw more clashes between anarchists and police as Molotov cocktails and rocks were thrown in Exarchia.

This time clashes lasted a solid two hours with Tositsa Street — next to the National Technical University of Athens (NTUA) — turning into a battlefield.

It all started a little before midnight with a group of people in hoodies coming down Tositsa Street and attacking police between NTUA and the National Archaeological Museum on Patission Street.

Patission Street remained closed for quite a while as skirmishes continued for at least two hours.
