The Coalition of the Radical Left (SYRIZA) yesterday issued a statement alleging that groups linked to the extreme right-wing Chrysi Avgi (Golden Dawn) have been attacking immigrants in the Aghios Panteleimonas district of central Athens over the past week. According to SYRIZA, the groups have been patrolling the area at night and have attacked immigrants with sticks and iron bars.
I don’t have any other information at the moment. As soon as I find out more I will post it. The situation for immigrants here in Greece is becoming intolerable. I write “becoming” but thinking on… it already is. I don’t understand how a person can even dislike a another human being because of the colour of their skin, let alone go out and attack them. It’s incomprehensible to me.
What can we do ? Anything ? I believe the police know who these people are but it seems that nothing much is being done to stop their violence.
I am at a loss for words…
