Union leaders representing Greek police officers have accused the government of losing control of the security situation in the country.
They say denying police the power to arrest trouble makers involved in weeks of rioting has created a climate which has allowed a resurgence of domestic terrorism.
They were addressing several hundred police officers who staged a demonstration in support of a colleague, who is fighting for his life after being shot in a machine gun attack yesterday.
He was shot by a militant group called Revolutionary Struggle, in apparent retaliation for the killing of 15 year old Alexis Grigoropoulos, shot dead by a policeman a month ago.
