80 years after the rise of Hitler, Greece is slowly slipping into the grip of Nazism – first time ever a neo-nazi party gains 18 seats in the Parliament, immigrants are chased and stabbed, leftists and homosexuals are being beaten by attack squads with the complicity of the police and under the tolerance of the government. Their leader openly boasts that “If need be, we get our hands dirty. If need be we are not democratic. For the sake of our country because above everything is our country; not institution not anything else “. All these activities are dangerously multiplying by the day. Thus, we need your help convincing the Council of Europe to take action.
We are calling for a judicial investigation into the workings of Golden Dawn. Their activities are racist, anti-democratic and illegal and their speech is spreading hate; their leader has been jailed for extreme-rightwing terrorism in the 70s, the party spokesperson and MP has attacked two female left-wing MPs and was never arrested while having a trial pending for participating in a stabbing; other candidates and members of Golden Dawn are also accused of crimes as serious as deadly assault and murder.
Their fascist activity continues and is escalating under the tolerance of the Greek government and the EU. Every day there are allegations and reports in the media of hate crimes against immigrants that are never investigated; intimidation and hate speech are an everyday reality for us. We need their actions investigated.
