A petition was written and handed in to the Greek consul, expressing grief and anger at the killing, and calling on the consul to denounce the murder. The demonstration, chanting in Greek and English, then marched down to the city centre, where it ended.
The protests in Greece and worldwide are not just about the murder of this16 year old boy by police, although this is of course a good reason to demonstrate, but about years of police brutality and repression in Greece and around the world.
The next demonstration will start at the Teviot building on Bristo Square, in Edinburgh on wednesday at 3pm. Please make it a long!
