Problems in Greece - level 1

Thousands of people in Greece are in the streets. They are in the city of Thessaloniki. They fight with the police in the streets. They use bottles, fire and other things. They try to hit the police. The protest is outside the business meeting where the Minister wanted to speak to people. Greece is in a big recession. The Minister wants to save money. People don’t like it.

The fights are during the night. People break shop windows, start fires and fight with the police. The police fight with the people too.
