Terror State: The evacuation of Syntagma square (19 February 2012)

The peaceful anti-austerity rally outside of Greek Parliament against the severe austerity measures approved by the Greek MPs, turns into a kind of “military exercise” by the Greek Police against civilians, as they methodically evacuate every single person from Syntagma Square, up to Omonia Square, the most central locations in all of Athens.
