Feb 10, 2013
Senegalese migrants in Athens protested in front of the City Hall, over the death of Cheikh Babacar Ndiaye, a migrant who died falling on the subway track during a police operation to remove street vendors.
The Senegalese community in Athens together with the movement “United Against Racism and the Fascist Threat” (KEERFA), organized a demonstration in front of the City Hall to protest the death of Cheikh Babacar Ndiaye, a migrant from Senegal, who worked as street vendor, and died falling on the subway track, after being chased by Municipal Police on Friday, as reported in the story:
“Immigrant dies during police operation in Athens”
During the protest, three representatives of the Senegalese Community, and the brother of the victim, were accepted to meet the Mayor of Athens, Giorgos Kaminis.
At least one politician of the conservative government party in Greece advocates collaboration with the nazis of the Golden Dawn party.
When reading this report, from Dawn of the Greeks blog, one might almost suppose that the nazis are already part of the Greek government:
