Greeks protest right party Golden Dawn

17 Septembre 2017

About 3,000 leftist activists and migrants marched through central Athens Saturday to honor the memory of activist rapper Pavlos Fyssas, murdered by a neo-Nazi sympathizer four years ago, and Heather Heyer, the activist killed by a auto at Charlottesville, Va. last month.

The killing of Pavlos Fyssas, who performed under the stage name Killah P, had sparked protests across Greece and led to an investigation into Golden Dawn for evidence linking it to violent attacks.

Giorgos Roupakis, the Golden Dawn member who admitted to a judge that he had killed Fyssas, served 30 months in pretrial detention, the maximum amount of time allowed.

A day earlier, Pakistan's Foreign Ministry had said that PM Abbasi would be raising the Kashmir issue at the UN. So there could be a meeting between Sushma Swaraj and her Pakistani counterpart Khawaja Muhammad Asif.

Demonstrators gathered in the centre of the city to demand a ban on the far-right political party and the closure of its offices, local media reported. Blocked by police from reaching the offices, the protesters threw firebombs and police responded with tear gas.

A second rally to mark Fyssas's death anniversary on September 18 has been called for Monday in the working-class neighbourhood of Keratsini where he was stabbed to death.
