Hacktivist group Anonymous has claimed responsibility for a series of distributed denial of service (DDoS) attacks on Greek government sites.
The AnonOps site reported that members of the group were targeting sites connected to Greek government agencies and officials. Among the targets were sites for the country's prime minister, the national police, ministry of finance and a national TV network.
The DDoS attacks come as Greece faces votes over major reforms and budget cuts in an effort to improve the country's financial situation.
Protests against the measures have sparked violent clashes between police and protestors which have in turn led to damage to local buildings.
While the group has previously targeted the Greek government over is support of the ACTA copyright agreement, AnonOps said that the latest round of attacks were conducted as a show of solidarity with the Athens protestors.
"Stop the intervention in Greek sovereignty," the post read.
"If you don't give democracy a chance, you should expect us!"
While Anonymous has no formal command structure or news outlet, AnonOps has affiliated itself with the group and is often among the first to announce operations or statements from Anonymous members.
Anonymous has stepped up its protests in Europe in recent weeks. The group has been among the most vocal opponents of ACTA and has mounted campaigns as the governments in Poland and Germany continue to debate whether to sign up to the agreement.
Scotland Yard has also been a target of the group in recent weeks. Anonymous supporters have released a series of correspondence between UK and US law enforcement agencies.
