Grigoropoulos's death in 2008 in an altercation with police during a night out sparked violent riots across the country lasting almost a month during which public buildings and cars were set aflame while shops were looted and barricades erected. School and university students marched in various towns of the country to mark the tenth anniversary of a fatal police shooting of a teenager in Athens that sparked the worst rioting Greece had seen in decades.
The 15-year-old died after he was shot by a policeman. Police deployed tear gas after some protesters threw stones and Molotov cocktails at officers.
Grigoropoulos was shot dead by an officer during a night out with friends in Exarchia in 2008, after an officer turned his gun on him following an altercation.
Some of the protesters set garbage containers on fire and set cars alight.
Earlier, people laid flowers and lit candles during a memorial service on the spot where Grigoropoulos was killed.
Annual marches marking the anniversary of Grigoropoulos' death often turn violent.
