reek demonstrators threw Molotov cocktails at the American Embassy in Athens, to protest the death of George Floyd in the American city of Minneapolis, and the American flag was burned in another part of the country.

The protests in Greece against the United States continue for the second consecutive day.

Live footage showed demonstrators throwing at least six incendiary bombs towards the fortified embassy in central Athens.

The police responded by firing tear gas and blocking the street leading to the embassy.

The protests come under the slogan “black lives are important,” while protesters chanted slogans against racism, authorities policy and others such as “I can’t breathe,” which Floyd said during his arrest while a white police officer was putting his knee on his neck.

The killing of Floyd has sparked outrage across the country over the police treatment of African Americans, which has resulted in political and ethnic polarization as states begin to ease public isolation measures imposed to prevent the spread of the Corona pandemic.

Please treat this discussion with the same respect you would a public park. We, too, are a shared community resource — a place to share skills, knowledge and interests through ongoing conversation.

These are not hard and fast rules, merely guidelines to aid the human judgment of our community and keep this a clean and well-lighted place for civilized public discourse.

Improve the Discussion

Help us make this a great place for discussion by always working to improve the discussion in some way, however small. If you are not sure your post adds to the conversation, think over what you want to say and try again later.

The topics discussed here matter to us, and we want you to act as if they matter to you, too. Be respectful of the topics and the people discussing them, even if you disagree with some of what is being said.

Be Agreeable, Even When You Disagree

You may wish to respond to something by disagreeing with it. That’s fine. But remember to criticize ideas, not people. Please avoid:

  • Name-calling
  • Ad hominem attacks
  • Responding to a post’s tone instead of its actual content
  • Knee-jerk contradiction

Instead, provide reasoned counter-arguments that improve the conversation.
