Some reports say that the immigrant was pushed by the police officers. In any case, the death of Tony Onua is one more assassination by the state repression mechanism, the Hellenic Police.
Right after Onouha's death, his fellow countrymen and anarchists in solidarity had a vigil at the place of the incident. Some of them protested and had a conflict with the riot police and undercover policemen who went there to suppress the protest. Roadblocks were set up and the riots kept on until Sunday 4am.
On Monday afternoon, 500 hundred people participated in demonstration including many people from the black community and people in solidarity, including the antiracist initiative of Thessaloniki, left and anarchist/antiauthoritarian groups. When the march was in front of the Polce Department, the demonstrators threw a lot stones against the guarding riot police.
The protests have been announced to go on during the following days.
