Greek protestors beat off duty police man, strip him of his uniform, and burn it.


Protesters attacked one policeman at Syntagma Square, near the spot where Dimitris Christoulas, 77, committed suicide on Wednesday morning. Dimitris stated in his suicide note that his pension had been cut and he chose to end his life in order to have “…a dignified end, before resorting to going through garbage in order to cover my nutritional needs.” The policeman was stripped of his uniform and some equipment which was burned on the spot of the suicide. There have been many protests and clashes with authorities in response to the suicide.

One day, I believe, the youth with no future will take up arms and hang the national traitors at syntagma square, just like the Italians did with Mussolini in 1945 (at Milan’s Piazzale Loreto)

–Dimitris Christoulas, Syntagma, Athens, April 4th, 2012
