Mapping Racist/Fascist Attacks in Athens 





From Occupied London

A new project Mapping Racist Violence in Athens was just released. The aim of this map is to provide up-to-date information about racist attacks taking place in Athens and other Greek cities. The map is accessible here:

map.crisis-scape.net

Being constantly updated, it will become an ongoing reference point where the quantity and scale of attacks, their location and severity can be grasped at a glance. The map will highlight and prioritise first-hand reports, yet it will nevertheless include information submitted by individuals, witnesses, mainstream or independent media –– as long as it meets a minimal verification level.

Given the complexity of the legal status and story of each migrant individual identities will remain hidden unless they have already been publicised elsewhere or the person explicitly wishes to publish their identity. This of course also counts for anyone else that might risk police persecution or fascist violence.

The aspiration is for the map to become a tool for anti-racist and anti-fascist organising locally and for raising international awareness and pressure.
