Greece: Fascist attack on school preparing for refugees

GREEK trade unions have condemned Tuesday’s attack by Golden Dawn fascists on a primary school meeting to prepare for the reception of 27 refugee children.

The thugs stormed the Iconio primary school in the Perama district of the port city of Piraeus, outside Athens.

Communist trade union front Pame said they were led by a Golden Dawn MP accused of involvement in the murder of anti-fascist campaigner Pavlos Fyssas.

“The Piraeus workers and the whole country have accepted the refugee children in schools alongside their own children,” a statement on behalf of nine Pame affiliates in the city read.

“The vast majority of people understand that the refugees are forced to leave their countries,” it said.

“We urge every parent to isolate the neonazi criminals.

“We call on the workers of the Piraeus region to welcome the refugee children like our own, and to strengthen our struggle against war.”
