The march throughout the city centre was crowded and quite peaceful. But everyone knew that clashes would take place near campus between riot police and masked protesters. Except for this time the asylum had been called off and police entered the campus chasing cocktail molotov throwers. Students and professors attending a concert dedicated to November 17 Memorial Day got trapped between and lots of teargas was used...
