Demonstrators and police clashed outside the Greek Parliament in Athens on Monday as teachers continued their strike in protest of a proposed law which would change how staff are hired.
Footage shows police in riot gear and masks using tear gas and batons to push protesters back as they tried to enter the parliament grounds. Protesters fought back with sticks and fire extinguishers.
The teachers' strike and subsequent demonstrations, which started on January 11, are in protest of a proposed law which would set benchmarks for how teachers are appointed, which, they say, values qualifications over experience.
