Punks are breaking!

In 1984 the greek newspapers of the time discover the "new enemy within". The Punks.

The occasion were the incidents that took place out of the Α.Σ.Ο.Ε.Ε. (High School of Economics and Commercial Sciences) in the centre of Athens, because the live solidarity concert that was going to take place for the anarchists that were in prison that time, cancelled by members of Κ.Ν.Ε. (Communist Youth of Greece).

The next day the articles of the press essentially heralding the attacks that would follow by the police and the goverment to the Exarchia Square's youth with the famous "virtue operations" (επιχειρήσεις αρετής).

"And now the...Sioux. Exarchia; after the drugs and anarchists, punks came with the shaved heads", the title of a terrorlust article of a newspaper in 14th of September 1984."...with the hair cut like a brush, usually dyed with different colours, scaring the elderly, throwing beer bottles and pissing anywhere".
