Rioters and police clash at Acropolis | Europe | Deutsche Welle | 14.10.2010

Riot police used tear gas and batons to disperse hundred of protestors barricading the Acropolis for a second straight day Thursday. The protestors, most of them workers at the Culture Ministry, are demanding back wages and permanent employment contracts.

The strike began on Wednesday, when some 200 employees  barricaded the Acropolis and refused to allow tourists to enter Greece's most famous tourist site unless their demands were met.
