Athens, Greece - Nov. 17 was also the 35th anniversary of the student uprising against the U.S.-backed military dictatorship that ruled Greece from 1967-74. A black bloc of about 2000 (or in official and media accounts, about 100) broke away from a march of about 15,000 people to hurl Molotov cocktails and rocks at riot police outside the U.S. embassy.
