Report-back of the anarchist antifa demo on April 12 in Athens Greece.

Following an antifascist attack against the headquarters of neonazi Golden Dawn party in Athens, Greece on March 30, 2017, and more than an hour later, fascists brutally attacked a passerby art student, in their usual manner, that is many against one, because the latter dared to take a photo of their rampaged offices.
In response and as a reminder that not an inch of space should be left to the murderous fascists, a publicly announced demo was arranged from antifascists around the area of Abelokipi on April 12, that gave plenty of time to the fascists to prepare. Despite the fact that the fascists knew of the demo, they deserted the area and they were nowhere to be seen, apart from their friends, the greek riot police, that protected their headquarters building and even a coffee bar in close proximity that they hang out.
Residents forced to live in the area around the headquarters warmly greeted the antifa demo, that in turn, proceeded to stay put at small square in the neighborhood to hand out antifa leaflets and wait patiently to ascertain whether the fascists would have a change of heart. Well, no surprises there, when fascists are faced with organized antifa anarchists, they either hide and try to attack alongside the riot police as one or, as was this case, they tend to hide in their holes.
