Violent Protests in Athens: Greece’s Young Anarchists (Part 2)

Subscribe to VICE News here: http://bit.ly/Subscribe-to-VICE-News On December 6, protests in Athens and other Greek cities broke out on the sixth anniversary of the killing of 15-year-old Alexis Grigoropoulos, who was shot in 2008 by a policeman in the district of Exarcheia, a neighborhood in central Athens known as the spiritual home of anarchists. Annual demonstrations have been organized by many different leftist groups, students, and particularly anarchists, to commemorate the teen’s killing and to protest against police violence. The protests often culminate in clashes between protestors and police. VICE News attended the 2014 demonstrations, which this year had an additional cause: to support 21-year-old Nikos Romanos, who put himself on hunger strike after authorities prevented him from attending university while in prison — a contravention of Greek law. Romanos, a self-declared anarchist and the best friend of Grigoropoulos, is behind bars for armed robbery. A few days after the protests, Romanos ended his four-week hunger strike after reaching a compromise with authorities.

The Special Ops Olympics: War Games

Subscribe to VICE News here: http://bit.ly/Subscribe-to-VICE-News The emergence of drug cartels working together with paramilitary groups has been a rising threat for countries in the Western hemisphere. One of the most effective responses has been Fuerzas Comando, an inter-military and special ops exercise attended by forces from across North, Central, and South America. The goals of the event are to promote inter-military relationships, increase interoperability, and improve regional security. This year, military forces from 17 countries, ranging from Belize to the United States, came together for the exercises at one of Colombia’s biggest military bases, Fort Tolemaida. While each country has their own set of security threats, they all share the need to boost and innovate their military capabilities. In this episode of War Games, VICE News travels to Colombia to attend Fuerzas Comando, and see how these countries are working together to learn how to better combat threats within and beyond their borders.

Entrepreneurs Strike Gold Selling Ugly Christmas Sweaters

ugly christmas sweaters

Most people don’t go out of their way to buy apparel they consider to be ugly. But over the last few years that has changed, at least around the holiday season.

National Ugly Christmas Sweater Day and ugly sweater parties have gained popularity in recent years. At first, people had to ask their grandmas or scour the racks at thrift stores to find sweaters with gaudy bells or cats wearing Santa hats. But now, retailers big and small have grabbed onto the trend and made it much more accessible for everyone.
