The protesters, who notably waved “Down with murderous governments” placards, responded to the call of students, railway workers and public sector employees as trains and subways went on strike across the country. And violent clashes between police and protesters were recorded on the sidelines of the demonstration. In front of the Parliament, some demonstrators set fire to rubbish bins and threw Molotov cocktails. Police responded with tear gas, stun grenades and lightening charges.
