Riots in Greece

Saturday night, December 6th, two Greek police clashed with a small group of young people. The exact details of what took place is still unclear, but it is known that one of the officers took three shots, and one of those bullets caused the death of 15-year-old Alexander Grigoropoulos. Both officers are awaiting a decision of the court, one of them is accused of murder. The incident received a response in the form of mass demonstrations and riots in many Greek cities, which continue with different force to this day. The death of Alexander, it seems, was the catalyst that led to the long pent-up anger splattering the Greeks to many problems - the rejection of education reform, economic stagnation, government corruption, and so on.
