After a group of fascists had splitt off from a mass rally of nationalists and fascists, they attacked the squatted Libertaria social center in Thessaloniki, Greece.
According to the cops around 100.000 people attended at the nationalist demo in Thessaloniki today, including many fascists. After the demo started under the statue of Alexander the Great, a large group of fascists attacked the social center “The School”. The cops didn’t stop the fascists during their attack against the social center School (video below). Anarchists repelled the fascist attack and the fascists had to retreat.
The fascist thugs then went to the
Libertaria squat, while cops blocked the anarchists that defended the
social center School so they couldn’t get to Libertaria to defend it
against attacks. A screen shot from the start of the attack against
Livertaria from ERT TV (image below) shows that although cops stopped
anarchists so they couldn’t defend the building, the cops did not
nothing to stop the fascists.
A statement on Athens Indymedia earlier today said: “There is a need for an immediate, militant mobilisation tomorrow, if not today. This can not be left unchallenged.”
The right-wing and nationalist “Macedonia for Macedonia” campaign is a welcome opportunity for the fascist Golden Dawn Party and other fascist thugs to gain popularity again after their popularity declined a bit in the past few years. The “Macedonia for Macedonia” campaign demands that the former Yugoslavic Republic of Macedonia change its name into FYROM. Macedonia is also the name of the region in the north of Greece. Thessaloniki is the capital of the region. Nationalists in both countries are heating up the conflict.
