Two more incidents of racists attacks took place on Friday evening in Athens just a couple of kilometers away where unknown motorcyclists stabbed a man from Albania and two men from Poland a day earlier.
Greek media report that a convoy of some 50 people on motorcycles was moving around in the Chamosternas/Piraeus Avenue area, when they stopped outside a grill diner, entered and beaten a migrant. The man was employee at the grill diner.
The attackers left, before storng police forces arrived at the area. According to unconfirmed reports, some people have been detained.

News portal News It reports, that two more migrants were beaten while at Iera Odos Avenue, near downtown Athens. They were slightly injured.
UPDATE: Daily To Ethnos reports on it swebsite that the daughter of N. Michaloliakos, leader of extreme-right party Chrysi Avgi was detained shortly after midnight. “The attackers beat the migrant with the hands at several parts of hi sbody. The attackers were later surrounded by police units, among the detainees from the area where th eincident took place was the daughter of N. Michaloliakos.”
Thanks for keeping this at the forefront, and very glad to hear police taking this serious.
Most interesting in this is that the international media who gots its main theme in attacking Greece and observing every move made there won’t cover that. Even the cold blooded murder of a 53-year old Albanian worker by the son of a local policeman in an Athens suburb shortly before the last elections show – There are no Pulitzers anymore…
Anti migrant issues and racism all works fine for them. It’s like the crows that won’t hack into each others eyes…
Inciting violence should be illegal and every party, candidate or citizen that provokes attacks on innocent people should be prosecuted. No citizen deserves to be attacked for being an immigrant, a black, a Jew or or..
Advocating for hatred against certain groups of the society should be illegal. Most ssrious newspapers censor comments that support racial hatred. We need to make this a law and protect our democracy from those who take advantage of the suffering of the Greek people to promote their sick agenda.
Immigrants have been a blessing for the Greek society as they work hard, they take jobs in agriculture that is the backbone of the Greek economy and they help the Greek population grow at a time when birth rates are so low in Greece.
Greek people immigrated in all parts of the world and everywhere they went they were offered support and help. Greek communities have sprung everywhere in welcoming host countries. What does it take to offer a helping hand back?
I am ashamed to share Greek citizenship with the likes of Michaloliakos. Mr. Michaloliakos, the majority of the Greek people don’t share your views, you are a sad minority, one that makes a lot feel embarassed actually.
I m appaulled by these racially motivated incidents. A lot of these people are poor and desperate and are trying to improve their lives. I just hope that a solution is found for the immigration problem in Greece, because obviously Greece cannot support the new immigrants and these people are falling between the cracks.
