The Greek people protest against the Parliament’s vote on eurozone agreement - Violent police repression

Members of the Greek Parliament, led by the Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras, convened in Athens, July 15, to debate and vote on the agreement proposed by the Eurozone leaders’ Monday morning following over 16 hours long lasting negotiations in Brussels. The agreement, if backed by the Greek Parliament, will give a way to a fresh pack of austerity measures and economic reforms in exchange for a third bailout and Greece’s place in the Eurozone.

Protesters gathered on the streets of Athens to state their disagreement on the new era of austerity measures. I Don't Pay Movement dynamically protested a big NO to slavery, which is approaching through new austerity measures .  
A large part of central Athens was closed to traffic and pedestrians as police mounted a huge security operation to allow politicians access to parliament by car. At a rally of more than 20,000 in Syntagma Square, police responded with teargas to push the protesters away from barricades erected to protect the parliament building. 

Around 5,000 officers, including hundreds of riot and motorcycle police, used parked buses and crowd barriers to prevent protesters from encircling the building.
Police guarded the parliamentary vote on austerity cuts needed for IMF and EU bailout.
