Greece: Clashes in Piraeus during Popular Unity protest

Greece, Piraeus
January 6, 2018 at 13:10 GMT -00:00 · Published

Clashes erupted between police and members of the left-wing political party Popular Unity on Saturday as they protested against austerity policies and the foreclosure of home auctions in Piraeus during the Epiphany procession.

President of Greece Prokopis Pavlopulos, Mayor of Piraeus Ioannis Moralis and other officials attended the procession.

Tension was created when police officers prohibited the protesters from moving closer to the procession.

Protesters held banners reading "No home in bankers' hands" due to the latest wave of foreclosure auctions.

Foreclosures began in November as part of austerity reforms under Greece's bailout deal with its lenders.

The Greek parliament passed a bill stating that anyone causing harm to or assaulting notaries while they are conducting a home auction will be prosecuted immediately.

Fuertes enfrentamientos estallaron entre la policía y los miembros y simpatizantes del partido político de izquierda Unidad Popular este sábado, cuando protestaban contra las políticas de austeridad y la ejecución de las subastas hipotecarias en El Pireo, durante la procesión de la Epifanía.

El presidente de Grecia, Prokopis Pavlopulos, el alcalde de El Pireo, Ioannis Moralis y otras autoridades asistieron a la procesión.

La tensión creció cuando los agentes de policía prohibieron a los manifestantes acercarse a la procesión

Los manifestantes sostuvieron pancartas que decían "No más casas en manos de los banqueros" debido a la última ola de subastas y ejecuciones hipotecarias.

Las ejecuciones hipotecarias comenzaron en noviembre como parte de las reformas de austeridad por el acuerdo de rescate de Grecia con sus prestamistas.

El parlamento griego aprobó un proyecto de ley que establece que cualquier persona que cause daños o agreda a los notarios mientras se lleva a cabo una de estas ejecuciones hipotecarias sea procesado de inmediato.
