Greek anarchists briefly seize French Consulate in Patras
Nov 10, 2010
Greek anarchists for a brief time Tuesday night seized the French Consulate in the city of Patras. Thus, they vented their protest against the pension reform, approved by the French authorities.
The anarchists claimed that they "oppose slavery for wages" and "do not agree with the policies of French President Nicolas Sarkozy regarding working people, as well as the Roma and refugees." Police units were sent to the consulate, but their intervention was not necessary.
The anarchists voluntarily left the building.
