Neo-nazis storm the university of Athens, injuring students, while mainstream media speak of ‘anarchist attack’

At approximately 13:30 GMT+2, a group of about 20 neo-nazis (according to information received so far, aligned to ‘New Horizons’, A student neo-nazi group linked with the old party of Antonis Samaras, who is today the leader of the right wing party Nea Dimokratia that is participating in the governmental coalition and to the Greek-Cypriot fascist group DRASIS-KES) entered the Physics and the Mathematics departments of the University of Athens main campus in the suburb of Zografou.

The thugs injured at least three students. According to eye-witnesses they were welding sticks, helmets and possibly axes. They stormed the corridors and the students general assembly. Students managed to group up quickly and to hold an anti-fascist demonstration of a few hundred, while the perpetrators of the attack disappeared from the scene. The anti-fascist demo marched the streets of Zografou searching for the fascists who had vanished, but they found DRASIS-KES offices that were broken, the little room that houses New Horizons in the university was also broken.

Then the participants to the demo, approximately 300 people held an emergency assembly in the University. In a remarkable twist of reality (even by their usual, low standards) many mainstream media outlets claim this to be an attack by ‘hooded-up youths’ (koukouloforoi), with an indirect, or even direct reference to anarchists.

    I was curious if you ever considered changing the layout of your website?

    Its very well written; I love what youve got to say.
    But maybe you could a little more in the way of content
    so people could connect with it better. Youve got an awful lot of text
    for only having one or two pictures. Maybe you could space it
    out better?
