Anti-Nazi demonstrations took place across Greece on Saturday of last week.

They were in response to the violent street thugs of the Golden Dawn party.

In Athens police blocked roads with police buses to allow the Nazis to assemble.

But local immigrants still came out onto the streets to join anti-fascists who put on a concert where the police blockade stopped them.

The struggle against austerity continues across Greece. Sea workers began a rolling 48-hour strike on Monday of this week.
