As Greek cities prepare for anti-fascist demos in the evening, the country sees some of its biggest strike demonstrations in recent years

As 20 (and counting) cities all over Greece will see anti-fascist demonstrations this evening, in response to the murder of 34-year old anti-fascist Pavlos Fyssas by the Golden Dawn, strike demonstrations have taken place over the country this morning, called by high-school teachers, who are now on strike. In many cities (including Athens, Patras, Chania, Thessaloniki, Larisa and Trikala) the striking teachers were joined by enraged anti-fascists.

As a result, Patras saw one of the biggest strike demonstrations in recent years, with approximately 12-15,000 participating. During the demo, people attacked the local Golden Dawn office with molotov cocktails and stones, while an Italian fascist pulled and pointed a gun at the anti-fascist block, later detained by the police.

In the port city of Chania in Crete, the local office of Golden Dawn was also besieged and attacked by the enraged demonstrators, with the police using tear gas to push them back.

This, as everyone is now building fo this evenings demonstrations – approximately 20, at the last count, and increasing by the hour.

    Everyone else will find it a nifty and charming beat-em-up that’s fun to play for a while, but not cool enough to
    fork up cash for. All you need to do is choose your
    print the combination in the texture, the design,
    the material and there you are. Think about using the trial version of the video
    game before going out and purchasing the full version.
