Rallies Held in Athens Ahead of Bailout Vote – Rioters Clash With Police Outside Greek Parliament

Greeks-Marched-Through-Central-AthensClashes broke out between police and rioters around the Greek Parliament in downtown Athens on Wednesday.
Greek lawmakers are now convening in parliament to vote on the provisional bailout deal that would bring more austerity measures and reforms in exchange for an estimated 86 billion euros.
13,000 people reportedly participated in Wednesday’s rallies in protest of the bailout deal.
Clashes broke out after unionists marched and arrived outside Greece’s parliament.
Police then clashed with people who were reportedly not part of the rallies. Riot police used tear gas against 100-150 people who threw small objects as well as molotov cocktails toward them.
