A worker of the Hellenic Gold company stands next to burning cars in the forest of Skouries, some 620kms north of Athens, on February 17, 2013. Dozens of hooded men firebombed the premises of a Greek subsidiary of a Canadian gold mining company today, injuring a guard and damaging containers, cars and trucks. The site has faced opposition from citizens' groups who fear the project will cause irreversible harm to the local environment. They have been trying to halt the project since 2011, when the Greek government allowed Hellenic Gold, a subsidiary of Canadian company Eldorado Gold, to dig in the region.
