For the second night in a row, hundreds of Greeks living on the Aegean islands of Lesbos and Chios violently clashed with police on Wednesday night over the allegedly conservative government’s plan to build new camps for the migrant invaders.
Local residents – completely enraged by the quality of their lives being ruined due to their islands being invaded – took to the streets and targeted various locations on the islands of Lesbos and Chios, Greek City Times reports.
The protestors pelted security forces with stones, set fires, and attacked police with sticks to express their anger over the invasion of their only home. Greek police deployed tear gas and rubber bullets to prevent protesters from reaching the site where the new migrant facilities are supposed to be built.
Greek residents on the island of Chios also protested against the planned construction sites for the camps, rushing into a hotel where police officers were staying.
The night’s chaos left 50 riot police officers and 10 protesters injured.
