for a protest against a fresh wave of austerity measures which was marred by violence

and causing a news blackout as journalists joined the action.


Public transport was operating for most of the day to enable Athenians to attend demonstrations in the city center.

Which of the 2 following videos has not been seen by EU politicians ?
