The leader of the ultra-nationalist party addressed supporters from around the country in front of the monument to Spartan King Leonidas and his 300 Spartans in Thermopylae.
"Dendias came out with a smug smile to say that we (the government) shall crush the stormtroopers. We are here, let them come and crush us ... You are the stormtroopers of Golden Dawn," Michaloliakos told hundreds of uniformed supporters.
Michaloliakos said "there are traitors everywhere", while also stepping up his attack on the institution of parliament: "We feel uncomfortable in there. If they want, we'll abandon it at any moment; we'll take to the streets ... then we'll see what storm troopers are."
He went on to say "we are waiting for the time to be strong enough to claim Greeks' just cause ... at some point the struggle will be waged."
