On the 6th December 2008 in Exarcheia, the anarchist district of Athens, fifteen year old Alexis Grigoropoulos was summarily executed by the Greek state. 8 years on, electoral politics are converging with old 20th century fascism, and the ‘left’ party Syriza is negotiating with golden dawn.
The Athens Working Class has other ideas.
We have recently been supporting a number of people in trouble for doing the right thing. We’ve had to pay fines and legal fees for anti arms fair, no borders and antifascist activists so funds are now tight. BDS exists to support any one of us who may end up facing the legal attacks from the state. Please support this benefit night and the ongoing practical solidarity work of BDS.

It pisses us off. After WW2 the labour government released Mosley from internment, allowed him to re-launch his fascist party, with his delightful son max, who’s still around, and gave them a police escort wherever they went. Apart from Spain and Portugal, that retained fascist governments, the only Western territory in which it was legal to glorify the holocaust was Britain. They were kicked off the streets, by, among others, the 43 Group comprising Jewish ex-service people and their allies, and the new West Indian community in North West London.
