Antifascists in Chania shut down fascist food handout

May 27, 2013

A huge antifascist demonstration has been organized by left-wing and anarchist groups last Saturday in Chania (Crete Island). The racist “Greeks only” food handout of the neonazis was cancelled according the Greek website “tokaravani.gr”, shortly after the mobilization of the antifascists took to the streets. The participants according the same website, were actually focused on the counter-information of the local society of the city concerning the neo-nazi party activities and its ideological background. They were shouting slogans as well as tried to make a comparison of Golden Dawn with the nazi national socialist party.

Here is a video about this.
