Greek protesters surrounded by riot police after being tear gassed - Thessaloniki, Greece 2009
After the police had repeatedly tear gassed us and beat those who tried to get away from the place they started forcing people to sit down and attacked those around the edges of the group using clubs and shields. Later on when the TV camera arrived in force the situation had calmed down enough for me to shot this. As you can see the people here were just students protesting not a bunch of hard core anarchists set of smashing everything in sight as the media reported over the weekend.
