Albania's Chams want Greek apology for wartime expulsion

Albania’s Cham community, expelled from Greece after World War Two, asked Greece on Saturday to apologize for what they called a genocide against them and permit them to return to the area in northern Greece from which they were removed.

Greece, which dismisses the Cham issue as non-existent, and neighbor Albania have started talks on a number of issues including their borders and a state of war law still active in Greece since Italy invaded it from Albania in World War Two.

The talks are intended to reach agreements by Orthodox Easter on April 8 to ensure Albania has no obstacles in its path to the start of accession negotiations with the European Union, of which Greece is a member. Both are members of NATO.

Five injured in far-right attack on leftist hangout in Piraeus

Five people were injured on Sunday evening when a group of men believed to be far-right supporters smashed their way into a leftist community center in the port city of Piraeus.

The attackers were wielding tire irons and lit smoke bombs when the barged into the premises shortly after 7 p.m., attacking the people who were gathered there at the time and smashing windows and furniture.

According to reports on an anarchist website, the attackers shouted the slogan “blood, honor, Golden Dawn,” which is used by the far-right party that is currently on trial for a string of attacks, some deadly, on migrants and opponents.

Among the five people injured is the lawyer representing the family of Pavlos Fyssas, a musician who was stabbed to death by a self-professed Golden Dawn member in September 2013, the incident that is at the center of the current trial.

Greek president urges Europeans to combat forces of populism, neo-Nazism

European citizens must mount a fightback against the forces of populism and neo-Nazism which threaten the very foundations of the unification project, Greek President Prokopis Pavlopoulos said Friday ahead of the 51st anniversary since a group of army officers seized power in a military coup.

“Conscious European citizens must come together to combat, immediately and decisively, these groupings, above all by eradicating the real causes – as well as the subsequent wrong-headed policies – that generated and keep them alive,” Pavlopoulos said.

On 21 April 1967, seven years of military dictatorship began in Greece. During the rule of the colonels, thousands of people were arrested and tortured.
