Antifa protest against Golden Dawn blocked by police

=Massive antifa protest march in Greece demanding the closure of the Golden Dawn headquarters, due to attack on student.=
A massive antifascist protest march took place in Athens on Saturday. Hundreds of demonstrators demanded the closure of the far right party "Golden Dawn" headquarters. The demonstrators were blocked by police before reaching the area of the far right party offices.

During last week, a 42-year-old member of Golden Dawn has been taken to the prosecutor on charges of aggravated assault after beating a 24-year-old student named Alexis Lazaris.  The suspect, who works in the GD office and has worked in the past in the parliamentary office of GD leader Nikos Michaloliakos, was identified by eye-witnesses.
The student  was heavily beaten and seriously injured just hours after unknown assailants attacked a branch of the party in Athens last week. Media speak of retaliation attack.

The parents of the student Alexis Lazaris took part at the demonstration today.
