The time was past when they came men with black shirts and threatened us. You'll be home before ten in the evening they said. Not released after ten. We do not want to see you out again. Talk to your friends Filipinos so they will learn it all said the leader of the men with black shirts.
The father of a classmate of my son came, like the leader of the men with black shirts ordered, to warn me.
What you will do, he ask me . What to do . I will go home. Julia said
Did you went to the police ? " Ochi.Trelathikes (no are you crazy) '. In the embassy ? " No, give my name ? And if the embassy can not do something ? Julia said?
Ron (not his real name-his full identity available to the reporter only), who is also from the Philippines, 20 years in Greece in Ambelokipoi Area unemployed, said some neighbors advised him to walking in the opposite sidewalks in some pubs-clubs in Ampelokipous . Because the “regulars” Greeks do not want foreigners.
"I understand something, but I was not sure," she confides . He narrated that last week came back home with his baby girl. The time was 9.20 in the evening . His house is located near the lair of Golden Down office in Mesogeion Ave, which is guarded by members of the Golden Down organization . "Hey! " Ron listens to one man (guard of G.D.) from afar . " Hurry home ", I told to my little baby to walk faster, Ron says.
Luckily the Golden Dawn people did not hurts us said. What do you mean, I ask.(pinay ako)
Two weeks ago Me and three other Filipino had come out to celebrate birthday in a fast food restaurant in Ambelokipi . Were returning home around 10.15 pm. Stopped by three men with black shirts and brand of Golden Dawn Passed into our hands handcuffs !!!.. ".
Ron’s voice lowered. He stop talking . What happened I ask again. The three men with black shirts and brand of Golden Dawn ask us : " Are you working in
