Greece, Athens
September 19, 2015 at 22:01 GMT +00:00 · Published

A group of 30 anti-fascist protesters moved out from the main demonstration on the second anniversary of the murder of activist and rapper Pavlos Fyssas, clashing with police officers in Athens during the late hours of Friday. The footage shows protesters setting containers on fire and breaking shop windows.

Earlier on Friday, thousands of people marched through the Athens suburb of Keratsini commemorating the leftist Hip Hop star, who was stabbed by Golden Dawn member Giorgos Roupakias on September 17, 2013.

The protests and memorial came a day after the leader of Golden Dawn Nikolaos Michaloliakos accepted "political" responsibility for the murder of Fyssas.

In an official statement, Mayor of Keratsini Christos Vrettakos discussed Friday's march, emphasising that it is the "duty" of Greeks to oppose "fascist" ideology. Similar rallies were held throughout Greece.
