A crew stick­ing posters ad­ver­tis­ing a Pan­hel­lenic Union of Mer­chant Sea­men (PENEN) event on walls in Pi­raeus were phys­i­cally at­tacked by be­tween 10 and 12 peo­ple on mo­tor­cy­cles early yes­ter­day morn­ing. The posters were pro­mot­ing an up­com­ing event or­ga­nized by PENEN to mark the 1917 Oc­to­ber Revo­lu­tion in Rus­sia. In a state­ment, PENEN said that the at­tack­ers were on a mis­sion to tear down all of its posters through­out Pi­raeus and that they were right-wing ex­trem­ists linked to the Golden Dawn party. “The neo-Nazi Golden Dawn gangs con­tin­ues to act unim­peded,” it said, adding that Golden Dawn-linked gangs have con­ducted reg­u­lar at­tacks against anti-fas­cist ac­tivists and im­mi­grants in ar­eas in­clud­ing Aspropy­r­gos, Perama and Pi­raeus.
