Letter of support for Greek anti-fascists

A week after the Norwegian election, which probably will bring the far right-wing Progress Party into the government for the first time, in Greece, Petros Constantinou, elected member of Athens City Council and national coordinator of KEERFA (United Movement Against Racism and the Fascist Threat), has been double charged for speaking out against the recent police killings of two Albanian escaped prisoners such as for bringing to light the assassination of a young immigrant from Pakistan by two people in the house of which was found fascist material.

These prosecutions prove that there is an organised plan to silence and shut down the Anti-fascist and Anti-racist movement in Greece.
At the same time, one more shocking murder is taking place in the city of Athens, by armed members of the nazist gang of ‘’Golden Dawn’’, of a young activist of the anti-fascist movement.

The government that has handed over the workers into the jaws of IMF and is chasing and prosecuting innocent activists while turns a blind eye over the crimes of the Nazis and the Police, is going to be defeated by a massive strike movement.

Norwegian society has to be alerted against the fascist threat that such as in Greece started by the introducing in the government of the far right-wingers.

We, the International Socialists, condemn the recent attempts by the Greek state and police to intimidate, harass and persecute anti-fascist and anti-racist activists. We call on the Greek government to end the pro-nazis prosecutions and drop all charges against Greek anti-fascist and anti-racist activists, including Petros Constantinou, Konstantinos Moutzouris and Savvas Michael. We will circulate this petition among our members and continue to support greek workers and activists struggle for justice.

· Drop all charges against Petros Constantinou, Konstantinos Moutzouris, Savvas Michael and members of the Samos Hospital workers’ union.
· Stop the criminalization of newcomers, migrants and refugees.
· Stop the persecution of anti-fascist and anti-racist activists.
· End all collaboration with the fascist Golden Dawn (Chrysi Avgi).

In Solidarity,
Internasjonale Sosialister
