They were even throwing things at people who were filming form their hotel balconies.

Some of the footage includes explosions, which I assume was where all the tear gas was coming from. The amount of chemicals in the air turned all our eyes red at one point, and it became increasingly hard to breath.

Soon after taking the last of these videos, we were forced to leave, as the crowd was pushed up from Stadiou by more police units. From what I understand, people have returned to the square now, but the amount of tear gas in the air has a lot of people tweeting, asking for masks and malox solution.
