Athens Polytechnic uprising
VICE News attended an annual anarchist protest in Athens that was met with an unprecedented level of police brutality.
VICE News was in Greece for this year's demonstration commemorating the 1973 student uprising, as protestors were met with an unprecedented level of police brutality.
Thousands marched in support of an imprisoned anarchist bank robber last Tuesday night.
Last Saturday night, some 20,000 people marched from the Polytechnic to the city's US embassy to both commemorate the students' battle against the CIA-backed junta of the 70s and to link it to today's struggles against austerity and state oppression.
