Continues here. [...]

Racist murder in Athens

 What does it mean? to cross half of Asia and get to Greece (to "Europe") for a better life and then be murdered. Riding your bicycle at 4 am in the morning to get to work from one working class neighbourhood of Athens, to another, getting in the way of two young right wing extremists, [...]
