Anti-Golden Dawn protests have broken out in a number of European capitals following the murder of Greek hip-hop artist and anti-fascist activist Pavlos.

In Brussels demonstrators linked the rise of the far-right to the financial crisis.

One protestor summed up the feeling of those on the streets:
“The situation in Greece is very worrying with the growing far-right and the fascists from Golden Dawn. We’re very scared and worried about the situation in Europe as a whole, you see that the crisis draws more and more people to the right through despair because of austerity.”

A Greek woman in the city said she is devastated by what is happening in her country: “With the rise of Golden Dawn and the way things are going in Greece, we expected something like this to happen. I hope this is the end. The whole political and economic situation is a nightmare and I just want it to end.”

It is alleged Fyssas was stabbed to death by a self-confessed Golden Dawn member as he left a bar in a suburb of Athens in the early hours of Wednesday morning.
