Pavlos Fysas, a 34 year old antifascist rapper, was stubbed to death late last night in Piraeus, the Athens port. The culprit, a 55 year old, was arrested on the spot and admitted his affiliation to the fascist Golden Dawn.

All political parties have condemned the event in harsh terms but a statement by the Public Peace Ministry is still pending.

Greek society is awed by the spiral of violence unleashed by the organisation. Last night’s murder happened days after an attack on Communist Party members, also  in a Piraeus suburb.
