Video: DIAS motorcycle police accompany Golden Dawn members to attack the open social space Sinergeio in Ilioupolis, Athens

On Wednesday, the 10th of July, a mob of Golden Dawn members on motorbikes drove through the suburb of Ilioupoli in Athens, ending up at the social centre Sinergeio. There, they attacked the few people who were inside at the time (an English language was taking place and underage children were in the space), injuring them and causing substantial damage to the building.

But the Golden Dawn were not alone. The video below shows members of DIAS, a police motorcycle unit, accompanying them to their attack.

UPDATE – the video was removed from YouTube and it is now available here:

    I don`t get the difference between accompany and follow. This is inconclusive. I m not trying to excuse the police.
    Can someone explain it to me?

    @GOLDMANEMMA – the Delta squad are standing by impassively while Neo-Nazi’s smash up a social center and injure kids.. I don’t know how that can be understood in an ambivalent manner.. But to provide some context, the Greek police have been quite openly working with Golden Dawn (Greek fascists) for years. The cops also form a substantial segment of GD’s voters and it was estimated that up to 50% of the police force voted for GD.. I hope this clarifies for you the reason they weren’t simply following GD.
