#582 | 21-year old Bangladeshi migrant stabbed to death in Athens, almost certainly by fascist thugs; 4-5,000 march in the city against police repression; fascist pogrom during the day sees at least 15 more migrants hospitalised

In the early hours of May 12th a 21-year old Bangladeshi migrant was stabbed to death in the Kato Patisia district of Athens. The victim, wrongly reported in mainstream news (and reposted on this blog) as a Pakistani migrant, was lethally stabbed almost certainly by fascist thugs who have launched a series of attacks in the centre of Athens following the murder of a Greek man on Tuesday night, on the corner of Ipirou and Tritis Septemvriou Street. Eye witnesses report that the murderers of the 21-year old man chased him around the neighbourhood and spoke Greek. On Wednesday night alone fascist thugs roamed  through a number of districts of central Athens, injuring at least another fifteen migrants most of which were hospitalised.

Meanwhile a demonstration called in the city in response to the murderous police attack against the General Strike demonstration of May 11th saw approximately 4-5,000 people gather together. The crowd was once again attacked by riot police, at the exact same point where a 30-year old demonstrator was beaten by police on Wednesday. The demonstrator, Yiannis K., is still in an artificial coma and is fighting for his life. It is expected for a clearer picture of his medical condition to emerge by midday Friday.

Demonstrations against the repression of Athens’ General Strike demonstration were held in at least another fifteen cities across Greece on Thursday night.

    How are the people responding to the police protecting the fascists? What would a “Socialist” government protect fascists for?
