A group of 30 anti-fascists classed with the police after a Pavlos Fyssas murder anniversary demonstration in Athens, on Friday evening.

The group of anti-fascists moved out from the main demonstration to set containers on fire, break windows of shops, and ended up scuffling with the police. This group of protesters threw stones and bottles at the police who replied with tear gas.

The main protest was held on the second anniversary of the murder of the anti-fascist activist and rapper Pavlos Fyssas by Golden Dawn member Giorgos Roupakias in the Athens suburb of Keratsini. Many trade unions participated in the anti-fascist rally and a hip-hop festival, held at the National Resistance Memorial in Kesariani.

Yesterday Golden Dawn leader Nikos Michaloliakos accepted political responsibility for Fyssas' murder. Elections take place in Greece on Sunday.
