Massive Anti Fascist protests across Greece

On Friday thousands of people took to the streets of Athens in opposition to recent electoral gains by the neo nazi Golden Dawn party. Similar protests were held across the country. The march called by Keerfa and the Immigrant Workers Union.

It was led by veteran anti fascist Katina Sifkaki who fought as a resistance fighter against the nazis in occupied Greece during World War Two. Many people were impressed when she attended the Genoa protests in 2001. She is now 97!

Meanwhile Golden Dawn are not exactly winning hearts and minds in the run up to the next elections. On Thursday their MP Ilias Kasidiaris assaulted two women MPs on live television. Many people have noted that the failure of the Greek Police to arrest him may have something to do with the fact that over 50% of Greek Police voted for the Nazis last month.
