A crowd of thousands, with the victim's mother in attendance, marched from Fyssas' memorial to Piraeus port. Protest organiser Petros Constantinou, stated «I think the rise of Trump last year opened the way for... Еще the neo-nazis everywhere. What happened in Charlottesville it was a very clear picture where the policy of Trump leads. It leads to open intervention of neo-nazis to exploit the racist rhetoric of Trump. « At night a minority of protesters clashed with police, throwing Molotov cocktails and burning bins, while officers fired rounds of teargas at the crowd.
