Migration and Struggle in Greece

Assault against Coptic church in Ambelokipoi, Athens

Posted by clandestina on 27 April 2009

Info from this athens indymedia article.


The door of the Coptic Church in Ambelokipoi, Athens was burned down completely  probably due to some inflammatory assault by racists.  The location of the door, away from any inflammable material, and the fact that it was completely burned externally points to the direction of the parastate attacks of the past. The Coptic church’s exterior space  each Sunday is filled by African immigrants, Ethiopians and Egyptians, with the appropriate costumes and hymns.
