Scuffles erupted as hundreds of far-right protesters, mostly members of the social group "Sacred Band," demonstrated against refugees and the so-called 'Islamification' of Greece in Thessaloniki on Sunday. A counter-protest staged by a group of around 200 antifa demonstrators, organized by the Movement Against Racism and the Threat of Fascism (KEERFA), took place close to the site. A heavy police presence was deployed to prevent altercations between the two groups.
