Yesterday an anticapitalist – antiracist demo and event took place in Kalamata, in southern Peloponese.  The demo among other things commemorated the 9th of May 1934 workers revolt, in which 8 workers were killed by the Greek state.  The local anarchist group “Alania tou Nedonta” has been lately much active and of course this annoyed the neo-nazi “golden dawn” braindeads.   The comrades are also active in initiatives against mobile telephony antennas which spring out everywhere in Greece, even in residential areas.

Although during yesterdays’s successful demo the neo-nazis were prevented from making their pittiful presence visible in the town, in the evening some of them attacked comrades on the spot where an event against the antennas is to take place today.   Yestarday, an assault against Greeks and immigrants in the town’s railway station took place and some days ago one against comrades in a caffe of the town .
