In Athens on Sunday 4th of February, a mass nationalist rally took place over the “Macedonian” issue. The police gave an estimation of 140.000 people, while the organizers speak of more than a million (!). Perhaps it had more people than the police’s official estimate but not even close to the organizers claims, which are more of a wishful thinking. This was the second demonstration within a month period over the same issue, the first being held in Thessaloniki in late January.

After the fascist attacks on self-organized squats during a nationalist rally in Thessaloniki last month, comrades in Athens were on high alert over the weekend during a similar nationalist demonstration. The dispute about the name of FYROM between Greek and Macedonian nationalists is leading to an aggressive nationalist agenda in both states. Fascists attacked the self-organized space Empros yesterday, but antifa activists were able to repel the fascist attack. Cops attacked an office of Antarsya but this attack was also repelled.
