With the occasion of the 7th Greek youth festival of extreme right wing groups, a number of racist and violent attacks occurred against immigrants and Greek students. According to eye witnesses, the violent groups were composed by Greek and also foreign (Russians and Germans) neo-Nazis:

On 27.10.2007 at the centre of Athens (Syntagma metro station), a group of extreme right-wing organisation members insulted and inflicted physical injuries to a Moroccan immigrant. Metro passengers present during the attack immobilised the perpetrators and called the police, which arrested one of them for bodily harm.

On the same day at Thiseio (Theseum), a group of 25 persons bearing neo-Nazi signs and badges attacked 2 persons, presumably punks, according to witnesses.

On 24.10.2007 members of the right extremist organization ‘Chryssi Avgi” attacked by beating and stabbing with knives a post graduate student of the Athens University, when he protested against the nationalist and racist graffiti that  the former were painting on the University walls. Observers of ‘Chryssi Avgi’ and the ‘Oi!’ groups believe they are  becoming more violent in order to rally followers and that many young neo-Nazis feel protected by the parliamentary presence of LAOS.
