Far-leftists and anarchists clashed with police in riot gear in Greece on Saturday night (October 2) during an anti-fascist rally against an extreme right-wing political group that has taken over a high school.

Police in Greece's second-largest city of Thessaloniki used tear gas and stun grenades to disperse the crowd as hooded rioters hurled Molotov cocktails and glass bottles.

"Chases took place in narrow alleys and many vehicles and shops were damaged while residents suffered from the tear gas," Newsflare's filmer said.

On Wednesday, youths backed by the extreme right-wing group Golden Dawn entered a vocational high school in and reportedly hurled gasoline bombs, flares and rocks at left-wing university student groups who had been demonstrating against government education reforms.

Last year a Greek court ruled that Golden Dawn was operating as a criminal organisation.
