Greek farmers armed with shepherd’s crooks fight police over tax hikes

Greek farmers armed with shepherd's crooks and stones fought riot police in a violent protest against tax hikes outside the Ministry of Agriculture in Athens.
More than 1,000 farmers, many of whom had traveled overnight from the island of Crete took part in the protest while police used tear gas and stun grenades and arrested at least three people.
As protesters are angry at increases in their tax and social security contributions, a number of farmers smashed windows of two police buses and burned a flag of the ruling party SYRIZA.
