Anti-immigrant gathering in Aghios Panteleimonas, racist assaults against school students in Rethymno

Yesterday, September 23, an anti-immigrant gathering took place in the Aghios Panteleimonas square in Athen.  The usual riff raff of “indignated citizens” along with militant neo-nazis took pride collectively for kicking immigrants out of “their” squares.

In Rethymno, Crete, there have been some new incidents of racist violence and many threats against teenagers from Albania.  The students of the technical high school reported the incidents to the police on September 21.  No lawsuit has been lodged but it seems that the local community knows that a local pocket of  junta nostalgic youngsters is behind all this.
