Anarchists storm Greek ruling party HQ

Banners hanging from the Headquarters of the Syriza party that read ''Solidarity to hunger Strikers'', in Athens on March 8, 2015Anarchists occupied Greece’s ruling party headquarters for nine hours on Sunday in support of hunger strikers protesting against conditions in the country’s maximum-security jails. A group of 50 anarchists burst into the offices of the radical left-wing Syriza party in downtown Athens on Sunday, forcing staff to leave the building, party officials said. “I was inside my office giving my first official interview to a radio station,” the party’s new spokeswoman Rania Svigou told AFP. An hour later, an AFP correspondent said the scene was quiet and the banners had been removed.
