Pro-Palestinian protesters staged a demonstration during New Year celebrations in Greece, chanting slogans and burning flags of Israel, the United States and the European Union. About 200 demonstrators chanted "hands off Gaza," as they gathered near an outdoor concert in Athens main square shortly before midnight. "This is our New Year's message: For this carnage to stop in the Middle East and for governments around the world to wake up and stop this," protest organizer Theodoros Koutsoubos said. The demonstration was peaceful, but scores of riot police took up positions around the capital's main Syntagma Square.
