Mass Media Report of Greek Consulate Demonstration in Paris

Paris – Protesters entered part of the Greek consulate in Paris on Tuesday after three days of rioting in Greece triggered by the shooting of a teenager by police, an embassy spokesperson said on Tuesday.

“They have entered the building but not the consulate offices on the first floor,” Alexandre Bouzis, the Greek embassy press attache said.

The action came a day after demonstrators staged a similar protest at the Greek consulate in Berlin.

“This is a symbolic occupation. There are about 20 students outside and 60 inside,” a spokesperson for the protesters said.

Bouzis said police were at the scene but the situation appeared to be under control.
