Greece: Anarchists/Leftists clash with fascists at Panteion University

Greece: Anarchists/Leftists clash with fascists at Panteion University
On Thursday April 13th around noon a member of the fascist organization “golden dawn” was spotted inside the grounds of Panteion University suspected of attacks against the anti-authoritarian commune in the university. As it was later revealed he is the son of a high ranking police officer. When students atttempted to approach him at point blank he pulled out a gun and aimed at them but before he was able to use it he was disarmed. He was then taken to the dean where a second gun was found amongst his belongings. The dean’s intention was to hand Gerasimos Papagiannis over to the police so that he may be charged but for ideological reasons late that afternoon he was set free by the same students that disarmed him.



Outside the university a sound system was informing the passers-by of what exactly happened and an anti-fascist demo was called for 5 o’ clock that evening.

Just before 5 in the afternoon a group of fascists suddenly appeared armed with knifes, sticks and flares and in absolute co-operation with the riot police attacked those who have gathered resulting to the stubbing of 3 students.

According to many witnesses the knife attacks were led by D. Zafeiropoulos –the only one not covering his face under a helmet- the nationalist candidate to the coming mayor elections for the City of Athens with the Greek nationalist party “patriotic allegiance”.
