article imageViolent protest against opening of new Golden Dawn office

Riot police were summoned from Athens to deal with a violent protest at the inauguration of a new Golden Dawn (Chrysi Avgi) office in north-west Greece.
Agrinio, western Greece.
Ekathimerini reported the inauguration of a new branch of Golden Dawn in Agrinio, Aitolokarnania, was disrupted by a group of anti-Golden Dawn protesters clashing with local police.
According to To Vima anti-authoritarians tried to reach the Golden Dawn office and as police prevented them they hurled Molotov cocktails at police. Protesters caused damage to two bank ATM's, riot police were called, and two people were arrested.
This year Greek media has reported several attacks on Golden Dawn offices throughout Greece. On Sunday "Golden Dawn's offices in Karditsa and Xanthi in northern Greece were vandalized by unknown assailants" according to Ekathimerini.
The New York Times reported Golden Dawn member of Parliament Nikolaos Michos referred to leftist death threats and the burning of a Golden Dawn office, saying “We’re fighters and we’re not going to back down. But they’re not striking fear into us because every center they destroy, we’ll build new ones."
