Antifascist protest against neo-Nazi Golden Dawn party in Thessaloniki, Greece

Politics Θεσσαλονίκη, Greece - 08 June 2012

Anti-fascist demonstration in Thessaloniki protests against the extreme-right political party Golden Dawn and the fascist attacks during the last days.

At the same time, protest marches were held in many other major cities in Greece. The last incident: http://www.athensnews.gr/portal/8/56094

Protesters across Greece poured on to the streets of cities Friday night, denouncing the "dark force" of fascism as the spokesman of the neo-Nazi Golden Dawn party continued to elude arrest more than 24 hours after his extraordinary on-screen assault of two female leftwing politicians.  Nine days before fresh general elections, the fault lines in Greek society are deepening. 

And late on Friday, as a police manhunt for Ilias Kasidiaris showed little sign of yielding a positive result, the divisions were on full display.  While anti-fascist demonstrators descended on public squares, supporters of Golden Dawn crammed into a hotel in Athens to hear the party's leader, Nikos Michaloliakos, rail against immigrant "scum" and the corrupt and crooked system that had brought the crisis-hit country to such a "dark place".
