Greece – Fascists attacked and injured members of KKE and KNE in Thessaloniki

A murderous attack on members of the Communist Party of Greece (KKE) and its youth wing, KNE, who were distributing leaflets in Eleftherias Square in Ilioupolis, Thessaloniki, took place earlier today by a group of about 10 to 15 fascists.

According to eyewitnesses the fascist mob used thick chains, knives and even tasers, injuring at least three to four people before disappearing into the surrounding straits.

In a statement to reporters Nikoleta Theognostou, the local municipal councillor of the KKE who was on the spot during the attack, stressed out that, under the tolerance of the governmental authorities and police forces, fascist groups are operating in the neighborhood for many days

Today's murderous attack of fascists come just a few days after the attacks carried out by fascists and neo-Nazis at Stavroupolis' vocational school against anti-fascists, leftist organizations, students, and trade unionists. 

In a statement, the KKE Party Organization of Central Macedonia denounces the fascist attacks and calls the government to "take measures" and "take responsibility against the activity of fascist gangs". The Party calls the workers, the youth, the people of the region to isolate fascists everywhere. 

The organizations of the KKE and KNE in Thessaloniki have called for a rally on Saturday 9 October, in Stavroupolis, against the criminal activity of fascists .
