Anti-fascist demonstrators are planning to march in the Athens area on Tuesday, September 18, to commemorate the killing of an anti-fascist activist by a supporter of the far-right Golden Dawn (XA) party in September 2013. Demonstrators are expected to assemble in Keratsini at 17:30 (local time) and then march to the XA office in Piraeus.
A heightened security presence and localized traffic disruptions are to be anticipated along the march route. Clashes between anti-fascist protesters and far-right counterprotesters are possible, as well as between demonstrators and security forces.
Individuals in Athens are advised to monitor developments to the situation, avoid all protests and demonstrations as a precaution, and adhere to all instructions issued by the local authorities.
