CAI’s Global Security Operations Center (GSOC) continues to monitor the ongoing protest in Greece over the February 28th train crash which exposed many long-term failings of the Greek railway system. Within the last 72 hours, Greek police have fired tear gas and protesters hurled firebombs as more than 40,000 people took to the streets to slam the government and voice outrage at last month’s train disaster that killed 57 people. The protests were accompanied by a 24-hour strike — the biggest yet since the disaster — this time called by Greece’s leading private as well as public sector unions. Clashes erupted at Syntagma Square near parliament in Athens, where police fired tear gas and stun grenades at demonstrators hurling firebombs and rocks. Police said 25,000 people protested in Athens on Thursday, as well as around 8,500 in each of the country’s next largest cities, Thessaloniki and Patras, where brief clashes also broke out, police said. Thursday’s industrial walkout shut down the civil service, flights and ferries.
