The Racist Violence Recording Network is a collaboration of 37 organizations and authorities with the aim of systematicaly recording violent acts with racist motive, so as to analyze the quantitative and qualitative findings of racist violence and hate crime in Greece.
METAdrasi, active member of the Network since its establishment in 2011, participates by recording incidents of violence, most of which towards unaccompanied minors.
In the recent report of the Network, among others, there is a concern for the frequent appearance of groups that run in the background, taking advantage of the general feeling of insecurity and frustration of citizens and inciting violence at every opportunity. A rising of incidents of verbal violence and destruction of legal documents of the victims was also observed during 2016.
Particularly distressing is the fact that in cases of violent incidents there were witnesses who did not react. Very often, incidents go unreported for various reasons, including distrust and fear.
