Thousands of people gathered this morning outside the Court of Athens waiting for the announcement of the decision for the Golden Dawn trial.

Schools, unions, organizations, political parties, anti-fascists were all there. The leaders of the political parties of SYRIZA, Greek Communist Party and DiEM25, Tsipras, Koutsoumbas and Varoufakis, also attended the rally demanding the conviction of the neo-Nazis.

Upon hearing the verdict, the crowd erupted in applause and anti-fascist slogans. The police responded with water, chemicals, flash bangs and violence, wanting to disperse the rally.
