An attack against the Turkish Consulate, an attack against its agents in Thrace for which the Greek State doesn't care, and a counterattack against Venizelos was unleashed by Golden Dawn MP, Ilias Panagiotaros, during the opening ceremony of one of the three new GD offices in the area. At the same time, members of SYRIZA along with anarchists, carried out attacks on the offices in Komotini and Xanthe, where hundreds of people were attending the opening ceremonies. Upon learning that the Turkish interests are threatened by Golden Dawn, the Left sent her strike teams to crush us.
|The attacks at Xanthe were successfully repelled by our Militia.|
The offices of Golden Dawn weren't their only target. The anarchists also attacked and destroyed several cars and shops in the area and that was how Thrace was introduced to the anarchist paranoia.
The general attack against our Offices were repelled by our self-defense teams, despite the fact that the Militia that stayed back to defend the People's Association was outnumbered by the attackers (The civilians retreated due to risk of injury). After that the Militia arrived at Komotini for the opening ceremony of those offices there and they faced the same adversary. They repelled them yet again.
And by the time the Turkish Corvette "Beykoz" had reached Sounion, our members were already besieging the Turkish Consulate under the salutes of local Muslims, that are familiar with the Consulate's oppressive tactics. The local Turkish agents running the Left failed to stop us from sending out our message - the Turkish provocations will not pass!!
