Petros Anastasiades is a journalist writing for Rizospastis, the official newspaper of the Greek Communist Party, and was attacked while covering a meeting regarding the refugee crisis at the Prefecture of Attica. A mob of 30 neo-nazis who are members of Golden Dawn assaulted him.
Tension was rising as the MP himself started shouting at the microphone series of insults towards the members of the left and the communist party. A little later, members of Golden Dawn attacked someone who was filming the incident on his smart-phone. Journalist Petros Anastasiades tried to protect the victim and was assaulted himself.
Elected representatives from other political parties were verbally attacked as well, while trying to evacuate the room. Policemen were actually present right outside but did not intervene. When asked why, they stated they were not called by the administration of the Prefecture of Attica.
