As members of SYRIZA youth unrolled their banner on the sidewalk, they were brutally attacked by the riot police, suddenly and without any justification. Few people were beaten and sprayed with tear-gas in close distance. K. Barkas and V. Diamantopoulos, both Members of the Parliament, were also beaten. Later on, they were taken to the hospital and head and leg beatings were diagnosed to both of them.
SYRIZA commented on the event, saying that «Greece’s governent, and especially the Minister of Public Order, is in love with repression as it was proved today, February the 14th, with the attack to SYRIZA’s youth and the party’s members of the parliament», adding that «the governmetn thinks that by repressing social struggles, it will make young people, in a magical way, “forget” all about unemployment, unregistered labour, and mass immigration to foreign countries. They make a huge mistake».
