Locals protest against Greek racist attacks

Residents of Perama have taken a stand against the recent anti-immigrant sentiment in the country.



    As the economy struggles in Greece, attacks on immigrants are increasing.

    Some politicians have blamed immigrants for making the Greek crisis worse and this week, a group of fishermen, originally from Egypt, were brutally attacked in their home near Athens.

    But, locals from Perama are standing up against racism - just a day ahead of the country's general election.
