Antifacist groups to hold rally in memory of murdered rapper Fyssas

Antifascist groups are organizing a gathering at 5 p.m. on Friday in memory of Pavlos Fyssas in Keratsini, near Piraeus, where the 34-year-old rapper was stabbed to death last September by a self-confessed supporter of the ultra-right Golden Dawn.

The rally is scheduled to begin at the junction of Panagis Tsaldaris Avenue and Kefallinias Streets at 5 p.m.

The gathering is to be attended by the parents of 27-year-old Luqman Shahzad, a Pakistani immigrant who was murdered in the neighborhood of Petralona in a racist attack almost exactly a year ago while cycling to work. The two suspects charged in connection with the attack are in custody and their trial is to resume on January 8.

Shahzad’s parents are said to have expressed their desire to meet Fyssas’ family.
