URGENT GREEK UPDATES
Two Golden Dawn members were shot to death and another man was wounded by unknown assailants who drove up on a motorbike and opened fire outside the Golden Dawn offices on Nov. 1. We condemn this crime absolutely. See the AKNY-Greece Solidarity Movement statement on the murders.
On Nov. 6, eight squads of riot police raided the headquarters of the public broadcaster ERT, where workers had continued broadcasting ever since the government ordered a shut down of ERT in June. On Nov. 7 ERT news was broadcast from the street and watched by 1.25 million people. Syriza has filed a no-confidence motion in parliament, censuring the government for its action.
