Greek police are clearly opting to support the Golden Dawn in their enforcement activities. Anti-fascist protestors got the living shit kicked out of them this week.
Fifteen anti-fascist protesters arrested in Athens during a clash with supporters of the neo-Nazi party Golden Dawn have said they were tortured in the Attica General Police Directorate (GADA) – the Athens equivalent of Scotland Yard – and subjected to what their lawyer describes as an Abu Ghraib-style humiliation
According to one of the lawyers quoted in the Guardian, mistreatment in police custody was rare until this year. This seems especially to be the case for Greeks arrested when facing down groups like Golden Dawn. And for those of you comfortably ensconced in Canada – Golden Dawn recently set up shop in Montreal.
