Migration and Struggle in Greece

Fascist attack in Athens

Posted by clandestina on 24 July 2011

On Friday July 15 at dawn, a group of 30-40 fascists, armed with iron bars and knives attacked 4 immigrants outside an arabs’ café in the neighborhood of Neos Kosmos in Athens. The fascists had set up an ambush waiting for the immigrants to close the café and come outside in the street. The police did not arrest anyone from the fascist gang, but arrested the 4 immigrants – victims of attack! One immigrant was stabbed in the leg and the other three injured in the head. All 4 immigrants were taken to hospital. Two of them got arrested because they did not have papers.

The attack happened just days before a racist attack in Kalamata,where an abandoned house squatted by immigrants was burnt down.
