About 500 immigrants and other protesters have gathered outside Athens’ City Hall to demonstrate against a recent spate of racially motivated attacks in the Greek capital.
The protesters chanted “Rascism, Never Again” at the rally Monday, held several hours ahead of a march planned by far-right groups.
At least 25 people were hospitalised after a far-right protest last week, during which dark-skinned immigrants were chased and beaten in the street by gangs of youths.
The violence was triggered by a deadly mugging in central Athens, which witnesses say was carried out by a group of men believed to be immigrants.
