In May 6 2006, riots erupted during the European Social Forum march in Athens. For a period of three hours following a 2km route, 2500 anarchists in smaller groups of 4-500 attacked banks, large department stores, police cars, government buildings, the police headquarters, riot police, riot police buses as well as "Z-team" policemen (motorcycle team). They also attacked the US embassy, the Hilton hotel, the Italian embassy, and the riot police guarding the house of parliament.
20 people were arrested 17 of them are charged and await trial for multiple felony charges. 3 of them are still detained since May 2006.
