Greece: Thousands protest attack on KKE by fascist Golden Dawn – World Socialist Web Site

Among the injured was Sotiris Poulikoyiannis, President of the Metalworkers Union of Piraeus, which is dominated by the All-Workers Militant Front PAME—the KKE’s faction in the Greek union bureaucracy.Much has been made in the Greek media of an operation launched by the Hellenic Police on Friday, which saw 26 people taken in for questioning over the attack. However, all of those have since been released, except one who was charged for possession of a small quantity of an illegal substance.There is every reason to believe that the operation was a smokescreen to deflect accusations that the police routinely turn a blind eye to Golden Dawn’s attacks. Police make up a significant section of the fascist organisation’s supporters.Such suspicions are substantiated by the accounts of bystanders who witnessed the attack and alerted police. According to Eleftherotypia, “bystanders spoke of the characteristic negligence of the police officers who, despite being told that the attackers were hiding in nearby side-streets, appeared to be indifferent, until the attackers vanished.”It is also worth noting that no one has yet been charged for the attack, even though three of the attackers were identified by name by their victims and witnesses. One of them was reportedly also involved in an attack on Egyptian fishermen in Perama in June 2012.
