Greece: Security measures tightened due to fears of unrest

Every year on the day of the death of a teenager, riots occur. This year, the anniversary coincided with the expiration of the ultimatum of the authorities to the squatters: to release the illegally occupied buildings within 15 days. In Athens and other Greek cities, dozens of buildings are captured by anarchists and migrants. Migrants arrange housing in the buildings they occupy, and anarchists often use them for years as the headquarters of their organizations.
