Athens, September 25: Antifascist and antiracist organizations, groups and parties of Greece staged a big demonstration in central Athens, in response to the brutal murder of antifascist hip-hop artist Pavlos Fyssas AKA Killah P, by an organized group of members of the neoNazi party “Golden Dawn” last week.

Estimations about the crowd participating in the demonstration range from 20,000 to more than 50,000 people. Police blocked the road before the demonstration could reach the central offices of Golden Dawn, resulting in small tensions, clashes, use of flash-bang grenades, teargas and beatings against demonstrators.

62 protesters were detained, and 5 arrests were made.
