#Greece: Fascist Attacks Against Favela Social Center in Piraeus and Panaitoliou 21 Squat in #Koukaki #Athens

According to witnesses, the nazis hit indiscriminately anyone and anything was in front of them for a few minutes, leaving five people injured, while they left chanting the fascist slogan “blood honor golden dawn”, their signature on the fascist crime. During the attack, they insulted and threatened the people inside the social centre Favela, screaming, among other threats, “cunts you are going to die”.

The part about the Panaitoliou 21 Squat was originally published by Athens Indymedia. Translated by Black Cat.

Note: Enough is Enough is not organizing any of  these events, we are publishing this text for people across the US and Europe to be able to see what is going on and for documentation only.

Greece: Fascist Attacks Against Favela Social Center in Piraeus and Panaitoliou 21 Squat in Koukaki Athens

According to witnesses, the nazis hit indiscriminately anyone and anything was in front of them for a few minutes, leaving five people injured, while they left chanting the fascist slogan “blood honor golden dawn”, their signature on the fascist crime. During the attack, they insulted and threatened the people inside the social centre, screaming, among other threats, “cunts you are going to die”.

Among the wounded, was also E. Tombatzoglou, who represents the family of P. Fyssas at the ongoing Golden Dawn trial. This was not the first time the social centre got targeted by fascist groups because of its anti-fascist actions. The conjuncture with the Golden Dawn trial provides another aspect that armed the hands of neonazis and underscores their “honest repetance” for the crimes they are charged.

Concluding, we shall note the bad impression we got by the initial coverage of the incident by the Athens Press Agency, which used words like “incidents” and “injured” to describe the fascist attack, as if it were describing a football match and had to maintain a neutral position, a tactic which entirely distorted the events. After being called out by readers, the unitial post was amended. Not that we expected something different from an agency of the state that leaves unpunished the spoiled children of the system (the golden dawn members), but we shall note it down because we could learn from that.

A few gours later there was a fascist attack against the squat Panaitoliou 21 in the Koukaki area. They attempted to open a window and set the building on fire , eventually they put gas and set the entrace ablaze.Later they drove by the squat on motorcycle again and threw a brick at the comrades who safeguarded the space, with the latter chasing the fascists away. We are on guard, fortunately nobody was injured.
