Left-wing protesters try to stop auction of foreclosed property


Greek riot police on Wednesday clashed with members of the communist-affiliated PAME labor union who descended on a notary’s office in downtown Athens to stop the auction of a foreclosed property in Marathonas, eastern Attica.

According to PAME, the property in question was the primary residence of a family that lost their business in a wildfire. The family’s father died in the blaze, the union said.

It was not known if the clashes led to the postponement of the auction.
