29 Arrested in Riot Police, Teachers Clashes

Greek riot police attack protesting school teachers in the capital Athens on the eve of Independence Day celebrations, making 29 arrests.
Scuffles broke out on Saturday just before the start of pupils’ parade, held on the eve of the Independence Day in the capital every year, as the riot police blocked the demonstrators advancing towards the Syntagma Square.
March 25 marks the start of the Greek Revolution in 1821 and the country celebrates the day with a military parade.
Authorities have implemented massive security measures over fears that protesters, outraged at the government-applied austerity measures, could disrupt the celebrations.
More than 5,000 police officers are to be mobilized in the greater Athens region ahead of Sunday’s celebrations.
Public access to the area in front of the parliament, from where politicians and other officials will watch the parades, will be restricted.
