Petros Constantinou

The resistable rise of Golden Dawn

Issue section: 

Socialist Review spoke to Petros Constantinou, an Athens councillor for the left wing Antarsya coalition and the national coordinator of the Movement Against Racism and the Fascist Threat (Keerfa) in Greece.


Where is Greece at the moment in terms of the rise of Golden Dawn and the anti-fascist movement?

After the murder of rapper Pavlos Fyssas on 18 September there was an explosion of anger against the neo-Nazi Golden Dawn party, and against the government that was giving it cover.

Letter from Greece

Issue section: 

The recent council elections in Greece saw a surge in support for anti-capitalist candidates, reports Petros Constantinou.


The success of Antarsya, the anti-capitalist electoral slate, in Athens was an important step forward for the left. It was a message sent by the thousands of militants who took part in the general strikes, in the revolt of December 2008, in the struggles of students and teachers, in the resistance against racist and fascist attacks in our neighbourhoods, and in the fight to defend our services against the cuts.
