SYRIZA condemns verbal attacks against teachers by Golden Dawn members

SYRIZA condemned on Tuesday the scuffles that erupted outside a primary school in Perama earier in the day, when Golden Dawn members headed by party MP Yiannis Lagos jeered teachers and parents who were meeting to discuss whether to allow children refugees to attend classes.

“The scuffles and the attack against teachers, especially in the presence of their students, at the primary school of Neo Ikonio, Perama, from Golden Dawn members with the orders of the accused MP [Yiannis] Lagos, show that Golden Dawn is attempting to raise its head again,” the party said. “These phenomena have to be condemned by every citizen who believes in democracy.”

SYRIZA also said the program to send children refugees to school will continue without any interruptions, as required by the values of humanism and of a well-governed and democratic country.
