Athens Cops Side with Fascists – Welcome to the Nightmare

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.
