Posted on September 13, 2013 by 

An attack occurred in Perama (near the ship construction site) before the midnight yesterday (Thursday), when a group of 30 Communist party – KKE members who were erecting posters in the streets of the area were set upon 50 members of Golden Dawn neonazis, holding baseball bats and iron bars. The KKE said that the attackers wore t-shirts with the logo of Golden Dawn and, although some were wearing scarves and helmets, eyewitnesses recognized at least two of the assailants. The communist party has named the two Golden Dawn members who led the attack on its official website. The communist party has called a protest at 6pm today Friday 13th of September  in Perama. The members of its youth since this morning are also informing the residents of the area concerning this attack.

  8. Please find links to one of many corrupt NGO’s abusing this sector, the relevance is clear when you understand that it highlights how the President and another member of the Directors who illegally pretended to be Doctors in order to gain access to sensitive medical data at Andreas Syggros (HIV/Aids) Hospital in Greece, were allowed and covered up by the Greek CDC (KEELPNO), interestingly these same people were allowed to help with the ruins case, despite being informed and the sector knowing of this state sponsored malpractice.


    The reality of this sector is worse than the documentary suggests as this isn’t a recent occurance, this has been allowed to happen for nearly 20 years.
