Athens riots

Athens riots 2008

The riots in Athens 2008 started when a 15 years old student was shot and killed by two policemen. The demonstrations grew into big riots all over Greece. My husband and I drove around in the middle of it to document what was going on. There where burnt up cars, dumpsters and buildings everywhere, and the police where desperately trying to get control of the situation.
