Greece: Protest erupts at Thessaloniki district court over home auction

3 19.10.2016 Инфо

A group of protesters broke into the district court of Thessaloniki on Wednesday, amid waves of home auctions designed to cover state debt.
The crowd of demonstrators clashed with riot police outside the court, in protest to the planned auction of a family home. The protesters finally rushed into the judicial office, forcing officials to vacate the building and the auction was eventually cancelled. The demonstrators left soon after.
At least 59 auctions have taken place across the country on Wednesday alone. Many of them have been cancelled in response to angry protests and interventions.
