Scuffles Between Protesters and Police During Anti-Fascist Demonstration in Greece.

Scuffles between anti-fascist protesters and police broke out during a demonstration, Saturday, October 9, Athens, Greece.

The demonstrators were marking a year since the far-right party Golden Dawn was ruled a criminal organization.

According to local media, police told the protesters to only occupy one lane of the street during their demonstration to which the protesters responded negatively, resulting to scuffles and the use of tear gas by riot police.

Golden Dawn, founded as a neo-Nazi group in the 1980s, rose to become Greece's third-largest party during the country's 2010s financial crisis and was seen as a model for many extreme-right groups worldwide.

The party elected members to the Greek parliament in four separate elections, maintaining a presence between 2012 and 2019.

While distancing itself from its neo-Nazi origins, it maintained links with extreme right-wing and white supremacist groups in Europe and the U.S.

On Oct. 7 2020, the group was ruled a criminal organization by a Greek court and several former lawmakers of the party were convicted of participating or leading a criminal organization.

The court also convicted Golden Dawn supporter Giorgos Roupakias for the 2013 murder of anti-fascist rapper Pavlos Fyssas. (AP)
