The rise of extreme right across the globe raises many concerns for anthropologists. On Saturday, October 20, 2018, while visiting people around his native Konitsa, Greece, as ethnographer, our colleague, prof. Vassilis Nitsiakos from Ioanina University, became a victim of intimidation, verbal assault and threats. This time the members of the infamous Greek extreme right organisation Golden Down stopped with verbal aggression. But as we know from history, such attacks continue if the state apparatus does not prevent them. Anthropologists from Slovenian Ethnological and Anthropological Association Kula strongly condemn this aggressive act and express full solidarity with Vassilis Nitsiakos and other colleagues in Greece.
