Photographic evidence of collusion between members of the fascist paramilitary group Golden Dawn and Greek police has been published by a Greek blogger
The photographs, taken in Patras today and published on the greek NEA από όλο τον Κόσμο blog, show fascists armed with blunt weapons brazenly stalking the streets with the police.
In accompanying notes, the blogger said: "The police are using neo-fascists and policemen in plain clothes, with rocks and sticks, pretending to be demonstrators who are targeting either the demonstrators or vandalizing small shops and houses, trying to divert the climate and scare off the everyday citizens.
"The pictures are from Patra city, where Policemen in plain clothes and Neo Fascists were clashing with demonstrators AND caught vandalizing small shops in the city. This was confirmed this morning by the Mayor of city of Patra, this morning on a major TV channel (Alpha)."
The photographs follow allegations last night that police have been handing tear gas and other weapons to fascists in the city, with widespread assaults taking place against demonstrators.
