Riot police attack Palestinian refugees

Posted by clandestina on 27 December 2010

On Monday morning, (27 December 2010) riot police attacked dozens of Palestinian refugees who had been camping outside the UNHCR offices in Athens for the last three months in the expensive suburb of Psychikon, demanding asylum. 8 of them had been on a protest hunger strike for the last three weeks. The riot police beat up the refugees and brought in bulldozers to destroy their tents and force them to leave the site.
