ATHENS, Greece — Violence has broken out at a march in Greece, held to honor a rap singer whose stabbing death a year ago triggered a crackdown on the extreme right Golden Dawn party.

Hundreds of youths were involved Thursday’s clashes that followed a peaceful rally in Keratsini, west of Athens, where rapper Pavlos Fyssas was stabbed in the street a year ago.

Rioters smashed storefronts and set fire to trash bins to use as barricades, while police responded with tear gas. At least one bystander was injured. Police had no immediate reports of any arrests.

A volunteer for the Golden Dawn party was arrested for the murder of Fyssas, 34, while a criminal investigation that followed prompted the arrest of party leader Nikos Michaloliakos and other senior members.

Commentary: The Samaras-Venizelos Junta, Tsipras & the rest of the puppets, could have focused on building a plaque as a memorial observed throughout Greece … in remembrance of the loss of thousands of lives to suicide during the financial crisis.

Rumor has it, Golden Dawn is working on such a project, but unfortunately they're having difficulties getting the project off the ground due to the party's funding cuts and continued harassment from the current Zionist Occupied Government.

This one guy Pavlos Fyssas is being mourned as some kind of leftist martyr. I guess Pavlos Fyssas is more important than the THOUSANDS OF GREEKS who lost their lives to suicide out of despair and pain.

"And none of this is gonna make news in the mainstream Greek media. Right now, they are all busy mourning over an idiotic rapper (who himself advocated violence against Xrysi Avgi). And of course, not a peep about Manos Kapelonis or Giorgos Fountoulis." - anastais
