Merry Christmas... à la Grecque

This evening the violent protesters in Athens crashed windows, looted shops, burnt down cars and even buildings... and they also set in fire the giant Christmas tree of Syntagma square:

Athens is burning

A 15-year-old boy was killed by a policeman last Friday night in the Exarhia square (meeting place for anarchists and other left-wing activists of Athens). The news spreaded soon, and tonight we are living the second night of fights among students and policemen. I wrote about that in my Spanish blog (visit), and you can find more info about the situation here.
 
But I will post here some pictures of the riots that I took today
