Default Re: Greece's 'Far Right' Golden Dawn picking up the slack

Evola poised to enter Greek parliament?

As Greece's economic and political crises worsen, a previously marginal neo-Nazi group, Golden Dawn, is becoming ever more prominent, and is currently expected to win some seats in the Greek parliament in the forthcoming general election. And the first book on the "books" section of the Golden Dawn's website is their Greek translation of Julius Evola, Essays on Tradition and the Modern World (shown right).

The label "neo-Nazi" is often used in polemic rather than analytic fashion, but in the case of the Golden Dawn its use is justified. The Golden Dawn's party emblem (shown below, left) resembles the swastika, party members use the fascist salute, and Joseph Goebbels is also to be found in the books section of their website, along with many of the works of Nikolaos Michaloliakos, the Golden Dawn's leader and a member of the Athens City Council since the municipal elections of November 2010, in which the Golden Dawn received 5% of the vote, a significant increase on the 0.29% they received in the 2009 general election.

It may be assumed that what is proving most attractive to some Greeks in the Golden Dawn's platform is its forthright objections to Greece's subjugation by EU memorandum, as a result of the intersection of the activities of irresponsible and corrupt Greek politicians with the global financial markets. One does not have to be a neo-Nazi to see some truth in that analysis. Added to this is the firm anti-immigrant position that is common to neo-nationalist parties across Europe, and has proved popular from France to Denmark. A third element is nationalistic, standing against America and Greece's familiar local enemies, Turkey and those who attach the name "Macedonia" to what is now officially called the "Former Yugoslav Republic of Macedonia."

These are the positions that emerge most clearly from a review of the Golden Dawn's website. However, the influence of Evola can also be found, though not so prominently. He is, as has been said, on the book list. Condemnation of modernity and of "the modern world" appears in the archive of "ideological texts," and the penultimate (11th) point to which members commit themselves is to "honor and respect Tradition." They also accept that "nationalism is the only absolute and real revolution because it seeks the birth of new ethical, spiritual, social and psychic values." We learn that the Golden Dawn's Youth Movement "is not a simple political formation, and requires of members a particular way of life based on honor, morality and virtue."

Evola, then, seems to be of importance to the Golden Dawn, if not to the platform that may be about to bring it into the Greek parliament. And Evola is also read elsewhere in Greece: although Essays on Tradition and the Modern World is the only book of Evola published by the Golden Dawn, Greek translations have been published elsewhere of The Aryan Doctrine of Battle and Victory (1985), The Metaphysics of Sex (2006), Revolt against the Modern World (2009), The Doctrine of Awakening (2010), and Orientamenti (2011).

A Week in Racist Hell: a wave of violence marks the start of the new parliament in Greece

From our friends at Anti-UK

Greece is in the throes of a rising tide of racist pogroms. To get a taste of the violence, let us take a snapshot of what has been happening in the Greek streets in the seven days since the elections of 17 June, looking at a selection of incidents of racist violence. The reading is breathless, but the reality is, of course, much worse.

But, let us look at the conditions in the streets:

- 17/6, early hours: from among the crowds celebrating the footbal victory of Greece over Russia in Euro2012, there emerges a group of 70, attacking immigrants in Omonoia Square, in Central Athens. They stop buses and attack non-Greek passengers, punching and kicking them, threatening anyone who tries to oppose them. Similar attacks take place further west in the city, in Attiki Square, at the hot-spot of Agios Panteleimonas, and at the junction of Acharnon and Galatsiou, where immigrants get attacked in a nearby park by a group of bikers. The latter’s weapon of choice are their helmets. There are also reports that few minutes earlier, the same group had vandalised and torched the local kiosks of the two radical left parties, ANTARSYA and SYRIZA.

- 17/6, early hours: in Chania, in the island of Crete, a gang of four attacks with knives and metal bars two Algerians, 23 and 27, who were sleeping on the beach of Nea Chora, steeling from them their mobiles and blankets. The victims end up in hospital.

- 17/6, 23:50: a group of Golden Dawn supporters attack an immigrant in the Athens underground station ‘Attiki’. The attack is videoed by a passer-by, who pretends to be talking to a friend on the phone (the subtitles translate what the fascists shout and what the immigrant cries). The attack is only a slice of a wider night of violence as the GD crowd celebrates the electoral success of its party.

- 17/6, election night: At the police headquarters in Athens for the second time in two months the elite police units were offered the opportunity to disprove all common association of the police with fascism and they declined it, casting their ballot overwhelmingly in favour of the neo-fascists of the Golden Dawn. In some cases up to 50% of local police units voted for the neo-fascist party!

- 17/6, late evening: Chania, again. A homeless 25 year old Egyptian immigrant is attacked with a metal bar. The assault is so brutal that the victim had to undergo emergency operation during which doctors remove his kidney. Three days later, police arrest a 39 year old Greek for participating in the attacks. (His is the only perpetrator’s arrest reported regarding any of the attacks included in this list)

- 18/6, 15:00-15:30: two teens punch non-Greek street-sellers in Alimos Baths, and hit them with clubs. Bathers just stand-byand observe. Only 4 girls react verbally against the attackers.

- 18/6, 21:30: A 23 year old Pakistani cycling back home from work along the motorway between Corinth and the resort of Loutraki is stopped by two Greeks on a motorbike, who ask him if he is indeed Pakistani. He denies it because he knows that this is the typical way that racist attacks start. Few minutes later a group of six, on three motorbikes, chase him down and hit him with a wooden club. The victim survives, ending up in hospital. When the incident is reported to the police it is dismissed as an inter-Pakistani feud. The police then go on to arrest 10 sans-papiers [immigrants without documents] as they visit their wounded friend in hospital.

- 20/6: Two kids attack street-sellers in Palaio Faliro, just a few kilometres from Alimos.

- 21/6, 15:30: In Kalamaki, on the same stretch of the Athens seafront with Palaio Faliro and Alimos, a group of ten thugs dressed in khaki attack immigrant street-sellers

- 23/6, 13:30-14:30: a GD gang on motorbikes, reach Agios Giorgios Square in the Athens suburb of Nikaia and go to every shop owned by a non-Greek and threaten them to leave. They warn them that in a week’s time, if they are still there, there will be violence. They also go around asking for names of landlords who rent rooms to immigrants. Their ‘visit‘ is closely observed by the police who intervene at no point.

- 23/6, evening: In the industrial/slumhouse neighbourhood of Elaionas, close to central Athens, an incident between local Greeks and non-Greeks soon escalates, as a group of 20 thugs appear and start chasing the non-Greeks. They hit them with clubs, and then they go to 4 immigrants’ houses and vandalise them.When police arrive, they arrest the sans-papiers and drive off. A wounded immigrant has to wait for the head of the Pakistani community in Greece to pick him with his car and take him to the hospital. By 23:00 the tensions in the neighbourhood reach new heights and the local ‘ordinary’ Greeks attack the remaining immigrants. When police arrive they arrest 20 more sans-papiers.

To finish off this small snapshot of immigrant life in Greece, let us mention the following story, that came on the final day of the first post-election week. It gives a taste of how it is for immigrants trying to leave Greece, as all fascists and most Greeks wish them to do.

Quote:
On June 23, two immigrants were discovered dead, hidden in a truck that came off the Patras to Ancona, Italy, ferry. The two Afghanis had died from suffocation while 18 of their co-travellers were hospitalised with varied degrees of injuries and respirational problems.
Hardly any of the above stories – apart from the case in Chania – was reported in the mainstream media.

The escalation in violence comes partly as a result of the wider rise of racist, neo-fascist and anti-immigrant politics in Greece in the last months. The elections of 17 June saw for the second time in two months the neo-fascist Golden Dawn (GD) entering the Greek parliament with a slice of the general vote that nears 7%. They also brought to power the conservative New Democracy, under the leadership of Antonis Samaras, a persistent advocate of anti-immigrant and nationalist positions. Theoretically, Samara’s Far Right tendencies should be kept in check by his coalition partners of the socialist PASOK, and the reformists of the Democratic Left. But the former have clearly shifted to the anti-immigrant camp in the last couple of years, and the latter suffer – at best – from the same delusions that all reformists do, forgetting also on the way that they are the smallest party in this political menage a trois.

But there is also a clear strategic decision by the Far-Right to create, through escalation, a perfect racist storm, where separate incidents will gradually combine towards a nationwide pogrom that will not only force immigrants to abandon the country, but that will shift the whole political agenda to the Far Right.

They have to be stopped. This is a far more urgent challenge than the opposition to the austerity measures.

I'm really impressed by Golden Dawn. It feels good to say that.

Greece is at the point that they were in 1941 when the Germans chased out the British. Because of Germany's stronger economy right now the Banksters want to suck more money in pretense of bailing out Greece. But who is really getting the bailout. It is the banksters not the Greek people. Unity amoung the Golden Dawn Party with the new German Nazi Party could spread throughout Europe and Hitler's dream of Unity in Europe could be accomplished. It is about time for another Hitler to take the stand.

When the Third Reich came to the aid of Greece...




Our news media currently bring up the probability of a Greek default. Sometimes, inspired by a deformed history of the Second World War, they also echo recriminations and claims against Germany, and even present Chancellor Angela Merkel in caricatures as a new Hitler. It therefore seems of interest to review an aspect of the behaviour, during that war, of Germany, occupying power, with regard to Greece, from which the Germans had chased out the British in April 1941.


The reality is that in the midst of the worldwide conflict, despite a partisan war and a maritime blockade enforced by the British, Germany sent Greece large quantities of gold in order to quell a catastrophic inflation and to stabilise the Greek currency, efforts that were not without success.
She also sent foodstuffs to Greece so as to stave off a threatening famine, as well as German export goods – and this despite the shortages the German people were beginning to suffer.
Through the intermediary of Sweden, a neutral country, she entered into contact with the British authorities, whom she in the end got to lift the blockade of Greek waters in favour of a Swedish ship loaded with German provisions, which was thus able, each month, to sail from Trieste or Venice and reach Piraeus, the port of Athens, without running the risk of being torpedoed.


At least Baron van Moyland, former Reich foreign secretary, recalled and declared as much to the judges at the Nuremberg tribunal on March 27, 1946, without being contradicted by the adversary.


(According to the official documents of the trial before the International Military Tribunal at Nuremberg: IMT, volume X, p. 119 and volume XI, p. 428-432; passages reproduced below.)


IMT Volume X [p. 119]


27 March 1946 Morning Session


DR. HORN: Witness, you knew Count Ciano. Where and when did you meet him?


VON STEENGRACHT: I knew Count Ciano but not in a political sense, only personally. I cannot remember exactly when I met him; probably it was on the occasion of a state visit. I was working at the time in the Protocol Department in the Foreign Office.


DR. HORN: What experiences did you have with Count Ciano?


VON STEENGRACHT: Since I did not work with him politically, I had no political experience with him.


DR. HORN: Now, another matter. Is it correct that Herr Von Ribbentrop gave orders that under all circumstances the French franc should be sustained against inflation?


VON STEENGRACHT: Such measures can apply only to a time when I was not yet State Secretary. But I know that the basic attitude towards France and all occupied territories was that under all circumstances their currency was to be preserved as far as possible, or rather should be preserved by all means. That is why we often sent gold to Greece in order to attempt to maintain the value of the currency there to some extent.


DR. HORN: What was accomplished in Greece by sending this gold there?


VON STEENGRACHT: By sending gold to Greece we lowered the rate of exchange of foreign currencies. Thus the Greek merchants who had hoarded food to a large extent, became frightened and threw the food on the market, and in this way it was made available to the Greek population again.


DR. HORN: Is it correct that Von Ribbentrop gave strictest orders not to undertake any confiscation in occupied territories but to deal directly only with their governments?


VON STEENGRACHT: If you put the question like that, it is basically correct, but I say, as I said yesterday, that in principle we had no functions at all in the occupied territories, therefore no Power to confiscate, nor was such power within the jurisdiction of other agencies; but it is correct that we negotiated only with the


[p. 120]


foreign governments and that Von Ribbentrop had most strictly forbidden us to support any direct measures concerning an occupied country which were carried out by other departments.


DR. HORN: For the time being I have no further questions to put to this witness.

Well, this is the result of allowing immigrants to flow without control to Europe: the ultranationalist movements. Had it not been for those insane immigrational policies of wide open borders, nothing like this would happen now. But politicians are stupid by nature and think they can do whatever they want without consequences. They are totally disconnected from the realities common people has to live in. Peole have a thousands of years old instinct of seeking security within a group formed by people with common characteristics. If a homogeneous community is flooded with alien elements, the integrants of the original community will sooner or later try to gather again and defend themselves and seek security among people of their own, people they can trust. This is a thousands of years old instinct thanks to which civilizations and other human communities have lived for long periods of time, and to which humans themselves have survived thoroughout the millenias. A simple example to this: The Umma. What is the Umma? The community of muslims. The umma does not accept infidels into their circles, only believers. This is how muslims remain strong despite internal ideological differences. The umma unites them and makes them strong.

This is lacking nowadays in western countries. They die slowly due to the heterogenization of their communities. But after reaching a certain critical point (see Greece), people do not care anymore about being called racist or fascist if the very basic survival is at stake. The western politicians are playing again a very dangerous game with human nature, a game which will have a horrendous outcome.

Commenter skip made a good remark in a recent post:

“The aging population argument. In the old days it was ” we need them for economic growth!”. Then it was “They do the jobs we don’t do!”. Then it became ” they are fleeing wars!”. Now “its we need them to support our taxes!”. But in reality its the socialist ideal of a one world government. How can you achieve it with nation states? Well you have to subsume them, especially the birth place of the nation state – Europe.”

This is their game, to destroy nation states. They might succeed, but people will then form new groups, new “nations” in search of safety, as happened after the fall of the roman empire. The allmighty “global” roman empire disappeared, and new countries began to take shape throughout the centuries. They play a very stupid and irresponsible game, putting in danger millions of lives for nothing, for an utopia, for an idea born of their lunatic sense of superiority over other people and nature itself.

How deluded and stupid they are.

Mail from Greece
The gap in social

Fascist forces take on tasks that does not the state. Especially policemen are among the voters of the "Golden Dawn". Of Schwabinggrad Ballet

[last post]
Fascists of the Golden Dawn image. DAPD


ATHENS taz | Just days after the elections, our conversations revolve around the neo-Nazis in Athens, the "Golden Dawn". Their electoral success seem unprepared to meet the society in a country that has faced since the Second World War with no notable fascist forces.

Particularly alarming is that the violent attacks against immigrants just before the elections in any way acted as a deterrent to voters. It is now clear that the fascists have stabilized at just over 7 percent. How does this happen? What does this mean for immigrant communities? What would you oppose that?

The questions we asked the activists of Afghan origin, Nasim Lomani, the "Network for political and social rights Dyktio" which is one of the most important centers for language training and legal assistance to migrants in Athens.

Schwabinggrad Ballet

Katrin Bahr, Ted Gaier, Charalambos Ganotis, Irene Hatzidimou, Sylvi Kretzschmar, Christine Schulz, Margarita Tsomou and Christoph Twickel are the activist-artistic Schwabinggrad ballet. The collective reported two weeks for the taz from Athens. schwabing grad ballett.posterous.com

Nasim Lomani has lived for over 10 years in Greece, he speaks of historical turning point. Through the combination of parliamentary strategy and open violence on the street in the last election campaign succeeds the "Golden Dawn" increasingly socially legitimizing fascist crime. Lomani stressed that the violence affects not only immigrants, but also the homeless, sex workers, homosexuals and leftists.

Will use the public against these groups generated so Nasim, also from the Conservatives to take advantage of the climate for the right camp. This is supported in Germany a little scandalized message of the campaign manager of Northern Greece of New Democracy Psomiadis, the "Golden Dawn" miterwähnte prominently in his list right sister party, or the fact that the "migrant problem" central pillar was the Conservative election campaign.

Much less indirect support given the Nazis from within the Greek police: In the polling stations, where the police chose, the Nazis gained horrendous results of 17 to 25 percent. Such attitudes of parts of the establishment increases the risk that the young fascist forces to establish itself as a socially acceptable term.
Misery and broom

From our experience with anti-Nazi activities in Germany, we ask for out strategies against the black plague. Nasim reports of anti-fascist demonstrations in neighborhoods such as Perama or Kallithea, where organized immigrant communities with Greek activists - they would not be enough, however. Because the Nazis rooting through neighborhood work.

Successful precedent is its perpetual construction for over two years in the district of Saint Panteleimon. They help the new poor with basic medical care, distributing food, Grandma's help on the streets or go to the hospital emergency. "The crisis has punctured the social network, and they fill the gaps," said Nasim can, "because our networks are so much more anti-fascist work. It has a little, when a government unable to pay, to guarantee social security - the impoverished people who commit suicide are afraid. "

An important way would be to support the teachers in the prevention work in schools. They are defenseless against the construction of fascist young, many are openly threatened. All this is also the responsibility of Europe. The Brussels-saving dictations to bring the company to its limits, regardless of the consequences. With reference to Denmark or France Lomani argued that the fascist threat is about to be set up throughout Europe.

Dominant is his argument about the responsibility of European policy in relation to the problems of migrants. "Greece is an open detention center in Europe," he says, referring to the Dublin II agreement, which holds migrants on their way to Central Europe to Greece. The Europeans, especially Germany and would have just about the Greek law and make the state budget resources for training of detention and prosecution of illegal disposal.

In the evening we walk in the center of Athens by the Evripidou Street. Two police tanks blocking the road. Side of a house Migrants sit on the floor. A policeman in civilian clothes standing in front of them and calls out: "Who is the next" A street corner controlled on another with extended telescopic baton passes from the three young migrants. As we learn later, runs on the evening of Greece-Germany football match another operation "broom".

[report on SYRIZA]

Unity, struggle, crisis: Currents in Greece’s Coalition of the Radical Left

Posted by kasama on June 26, 2012



by Eric Ribellarsi

ATHENS, GREECE – I emerge from the Athens Metro to cheering crowds, with clusters of various left political trends in view. It is the mass pre-election rally of SYRIZA on June 14.

The crowd is very young, largely composed of a high school and college-aged demographic.

SYRIZA, the Coalition of the Radical Left, is sharply opposed to the plans of the ruling classes – both in Greece and in Europe’s big powers. It has become a major challenger on society’s main political stage.

Their rise is a sign of extremely radical sentiments spreading among Greek people – some of them attracted to neo-Nazi and anti-immigrant extremism, but most moving left toward radical and revolutionary sentiments.

From the loudspeakers, various international delegations are being announced over a background of rock jazz fusion, electronic, and a remix of “Bella Ciao” (the famous Italian song of anti-fascist armed struggle).

I’m becoming quite a fan of the revolutionary music here in Greece. It’s sort of like ska, but actually good. One song that is particularly popular among the young communists is about “The Age of Revolution.”

Red Pole in the Crowd

Looking out over the crowds, I spot a sea around fifteen thousand, mostly young, radicals waving red flags and SYRIZA flags – from afar they appear engaged in an intense sword fight. Attracted to their flags, I headed over to a group of young communists – some of them unaffiliated, most members of the Communist Organization of Greece (KOE).

I was glad to see that the young KOE members are proudly displaying their own specific KOE red flags. Doing this had been a point of controversy within the SYRIZA coalition. Some forces have not wanted to associate the coalition openly with the very revolutionary KOE, so that they even Photoshop the KOE symbols off of red flags in photos featuring SYRIZA leader Alexis Tsipras.

I spoke with Anastasia, a young woman, one of those militantly waving the red flag. She is a member of the KOE and she is shocked to meet a communist from the U.S.

I asked her what she thought would come after these elections on June 17, and what she thought the results would be. She replied that I was asking the wrong question,

“No matter what happens in these elections, from the Squares Movement to this point, the fact that it has come this far has proven to the people all over that a new way is possible.”

Soon, Alexis Tsipras, the leader of SYRIZA’s coalition, took to the stage, with a style remarkably similar to Chavez of Venezuela, even down to the announcement style and hand gestures.

There has been talk of Tsipras being a “man of the Chavez type” – meaning a charismatic strongman who can bend a country’s politics toward the left by unleashing the poor, upsetting traditional conservatism, appealing to nationalist populism, and (step by step) creating new alignments and assumptions in politics.

I am still not able to tell if this is true or if Tsipras intends to go even further than that (or not as far).

But it is clear that Tsipras has become the icon of a movement deeply hated by the world imperialist politicians and bankers, and that wants to throw their Troika out of Greece. [editorial note: the Troika means the International Monetary Fund, the European Union, and the European Central Bank, the three pillars of Greece’s domination.]

Tsipras comes from the Synaspismos party within SYRIZA. That is the largest party in SYRIZA, with further contending factions inside of it. Inside of Synaspismos, many people are in transition.

Synaspismos characterizes the section of SYRIZA that hopes it can tear up the austerity memorandum of the Troika, while staying in the Euro-zone. (And there is one faction inside of Synaspismos that also argues against the Euro-zone as well).

I suspect that, in reality, it is impossible to keep Greece inside the Euro-zone while simultaneously carrying out these things.

On June 16, I took note when a representative of Synaspismos said in the Synaspismos press conference that

“If they hold the knife up on our throats, of course we will not stay in the Euro-zone.”

In other words, if the Euro-zone refuses to allow SYRIZA to implement its program, and if the Euro-zone authorities continue to demand extreme austerity programs, that exit would be inevitable.

Different views on the future of SYRIZA

Roughly 25% of SYRIZA are people not affiliated with any party (ranging from revolutionary communists to refugees from Greece’s collapsed mainstream political parties).

And there is also an even larger movement around SYRIZA that came out of the Squares Movement and other places.

SYRIZA also contains a revolutionary communist faction, mainly characterized by the Communist Organization of Greece (KOE), but also including other individuals and some small additional organizations.

Right now there is unity. At some future point, there may prove to be disunity as events and the people move.

I had an interesting conversation with a young member of the Internationalist Worker’s Left (DEA), who tells me that there are revolutionary and reformist poles in SYRIZA. He says in a way that I found rather simplistic that the Trotskyists and Maoists in SYRIZA compose the revolutionary pole, and that the Eurocommunists are the reformist pole, and that in the struggle between these two, SYRIZA is quickly moving to the left.

I also spoke to a supporter of Kokkino (Red), another small organization inside of SYRIZA. He tell me that his organization is trying to solve problems between revolutionaries and reformists by demanding that Kokkino and other organizations receive more seats on the leadership of SYRIZA, and that SYRIZA then merge into a single unified party.

Later, I asked a young KOE supporter what he thought of this solution. He tells me that this is a structural attempt to solve what are actually deeper line problems.

In his view, the way to “transform SYRIZA” is through bringing new generations of radicals into SYRIZA, and at the same time “leading through line.” In other words, he wants KOE to develop a program that wins out because of its correctness and ability to lead, not the numbers of seats. And according to him, the scene inside SYRIZA is quite dynamic and fluid, and cannot be understood in such a static and structural way.

Riot police today, death squads tomorrow?

As Tsipras spoke, there were a few points of his speech that stood out to me:

The speech started at a familiar place, denouncing the Memorandum of austerity measures forced on Greece by Troika, and by the PASOK and New Democracy (the traditional and now discredited parties of the old conservative Greek politics, who are now hated as notorious partisan supporters of bank-enforced macro-austerity — that very austerity that Greek people are determined to reject.

And he went on:

“The countdown for the end of the austerity memoranda has started. The scared and surrendered leaders of the memorandum parties have understood that their biggest and truest fear is the wrath and judgment of the people.”

But then Tsipras turned to a few points I found particularly interesting: A great deal of Tsipras’ speech dealt with the hated MAT (riot police) of Greece. The MAT are notorious now for being the section of the police where 50% voted for the Golden Dawn, Greece’s Nazi party. (There was considerable support for the Nazis among police generally, but it was among the MAT that this support reached 50%.)

Tsipras’ condemned these state forces for the beating of protesters, and their defense of “foreign entrepreneurs” (a controversial point I will come back to). But I suspect there is a much more serious outrage that Tsipras’ is not speaking about openly:

This section of the police, the MAT, would be the central and necessary instrument (i.e. death squad, killing arm, and enforcer) for any attempt at something like a coup d’etat in Greece. These are the fascists that could actually carry that out.

Today, in Greece, the ruling classes are almost certainly worrying over how to “stuff the genie back in the bag” – and one of their problems is that they don’t have ready visible means at their disposal for repression, except for the police, which are riddled with organized neo-Nazis of the Golden Dawn, and who also oppose the European Union from the right.

Historically, when capitalist ruling classes needed to enforce massive changes on unwilling and revolutionary sections of the people – they often grabbed for fascist means. They sometimes cultivated and empowered extreme parties like the German Nazis or the Italian fascists. In Greece, Turkey and other countries, the ruling classes sometimes fell back on military coups – relying on their Army to impose “order.”

In Greece, the external Troika forces are having trouble finding a section of the state that can enforce their demands in a reliable way. Right now, their most reliable frontline thugs and potential coup-makers are these Nazis of the Golden Dawn — who are visibly being groomed and promoted for still-unknown future roles.

Seeing all this, Tsipras (on behalf of SYRIZA) is focusing popular attention and the SYRIZA program on destroying the most Nazi parts of the police.

Tsipras’ proposal is to immediately disarm those forces, and to over time, dissolve the entire MAT. He would fire their leadership, “redraft the distribution of resources” (meaning cut all funding to political police), and over time, move them to “vacant police departments” where these fascists will be forced to accept “constitutional loyalty programs” or be fired.

It is worth looking critically at the way in which Tsipras seems to assume that he can rely on other sections of the existing Greek state to enforce or allow such de-Nazification to happen – meaning: Tsipras’ plan basically assumes the Army high command will obey future elected governments, no matter how left.

The Greek High Command: Reliable for whom?

Since the Greek army carried out a vicious fascist military rule from 1967 to 1974, many people naturally ask what the Army role (and political complexion) has been in the recent crisis.

We have heard that SYRIZA’s newspaper are openly distributed and SYRIZA events are openly held within the Army. However, when discussing armies of course, we must differentiate between the command and the rank-and-file.

The fact that SYRIZA’s literature is distributed among the masses of soldiers should not lead to any assumption that the High Command is unreliable to the Greek ruling class or Europe’s bankers.

During Chile’s famous fascist coup of 197, for example, the three armed forces were different and the top Admiral of the Navy was opposed to any coup. So even a split in the High Command, such as in Chile, doesn’t mean that a military coup is not possible.

Radical rupture or a better deal

One thing that struck me throughout the rally, was that young comrades of KOE were chanting

“Down with the European capitalists! Down with capitalism!”

And Tsipras on multiple occasions alluded to “foreign entrepreneurs,” denounced Merkel, and argued that Greece was not currently a democracy.

These statements are not quite the same – but they (both, separately) are controversial within SYRIZA where significant forces have historically thought of the European Union as a positive development (and even seen this new imperialist/capitalist formation as a positive force in the world).

What kind of a country is Greece? Imperialist? Dominated? Capitalist?

The Communist Party of Greece (KKE) believes that Greece is what they call “a micro-imperialist nation.”

Meanwhile forces from Synaspismos (the party Tsipras comes out of) believe that Greece is “a capitalist country,” whose oppression can be traced back (directly) to the capitalist class of Greece.

By contrast, the KOE says Greece is “peripheral first-world capitalist country of a dependent kind.”

In other words, in the KOE’s view, Greece developed into a capitalist country, and became dependent on and subordinated to external imperialist powers.

KKE and Synaspismos believe the main enemy of revolution is the “Greek capitalists.” For KKE, their demand for exiting the Euro-zone is basically an opposition to the conservative “neo-liberal” policies of the European Union — but does not reflect an understanding that Greece is externally oppressed (and dominated by) these larger European powers.

The KOE also think that Greek capitalists and capitalism within Greece need to be overthrown.

But there is an analytical debate that parallels a number of political differences: Over whether it is possible to have a revolution that pulls Greece out of a position of subordination, and over how much capitalism itself and the Greek capitalists need to be the central focus of politics right now.

In sections of Synaspimos, revolution is deemed not necessary, and instead they believe left politics in the EU can transform its character. It is also a controversy of whether the revolution will go through stages, and whether there is an element of defending Greece as a dominated country.

Conservative forces inside Synaspismos cringe and complain when KOE raise slogans such as “Down with the European capitalists.” And they cringe even more now that in the last four months, Tsipras has suddenly started adopting similar rhetoric (though he has explicitly not adopted the core of KOE’s program on the reactionary nature of the Euro-zone itself, the need for revolution, etc.).

In short: There is a major debate going on within Greek left politics: What kind of radical change is possible, and what oppressive forces should be the main target of the people’s struggle? Is it possible to build a broad popular coalition that targets the European-bankers and austerity, and use that as a transitional phase toward a new socialist society? Or must radical forces inscribe ‘anti-capitalism” on their banners, even if that risks marginalizing them within the huge upsurge that is going on?

The KOE communists argue that the key dividing line is whether Greece will repudiate the hated Memoranda of austerity or not. And the whole of SYRIZA is on the correct, brave, and daring side of that.

The European ruling classes are declaring that the old social contracts are over (the ones that were the basis of social democracy and the welfare states and the expectations of the people), and so in the conflict that emerges, people upholding the promises of the past are found confronting the ruling classes of the present. Where they go, and how they function, and what they dare is unwritten. They are not pegged by their political lineage, or even by the words they speak now, and it is very wooden and ahistorical to simply analyze everyone, all these forces in Greece, by either political lineage or their textual statements in the moment.

Greece, and now all of Europe have entered a profound crisis that may bring the whole thing down. Standing in a crowd like this one, the different poles are stark. And we have a great deal to learn from revolutionary forces in the center of this mix.

Great reporting.

In short: There is a major debate going on within Greek left politics: What kind of radical change is possible, and what oppressive forces should be the main target of the people’s struggle? Is it possible to build a broad popular coalition that targets the European-bankers and austerity, and use that as a transitional phase toward a new socialist society? Or must radical forces inscribe ‘anti-capitalism” on their banners, even if that risks marginalizing them within the huge upsurge that is going on?

I don’t think we should finesse this issue. Maybe that sounds too “purist” or “ultra-left” but if the revolutionary left goes through this crisis, which may very well end up, when it’s all said and done, being the most profound of them all, without having made clear to the people of the world that this crisis and all the preceding ones are the result of capitalism (full stop — not “crony capitalism” or “vulture capitalism” or even “monopoly capitalism”) then the left will have failed monumentally in its historic task. The name of capitalism — and all it’s euphemisms (“free enterprise”) — must be made mud.

Maybe there’s a political timing issue that we can take into account but we better not wait too long.

GOLDEN DAWN ATTACKS REOPEN DEBATE ON NO PLATFORM FOR NAZIS

Now that the Greeks election is over, it’s worth revisiting one of the worst incidents involving journalists, the violent attack by the Far-Right spokesperson and MP Elia Kassidiaris from the Chrisi Avgi, or Golden Dawn, party on other politicians during a live TV programme.

The attack shocked the Greek nation and beyond when Kassidiaris stood up during a TV ANT1 morning show and threw a glass a water at Syriza party MP Elena Dourou then turned to Communist party MP Liana Kanelli and slapped her three times on the face.

However shocking it was to see such an incident live on TV, the behaviour of its spokesperson should be no surprise as it fits perfectly with the pre-election mantras of Golden Dawn which can only be described as fascist.

High unemployment, the loss of economic sovereignty and the dismantling of the welfare state have created a toxic mix that allowed Golden Dawn to thrive.

Their frequent open attacks on migrants in the streets and the electoral promise to create private security companies and apply for gun licences gave party thugs a violent image that captured the imagination of a fringe of a demolarised Greek society.

Its leader, Nikolaos Michaloliakos, was proposing an end to the clear separation of church and state, the reinstatement of the capital punishment for drug dealing, a ban of trade unions, and several proposals that contravened the most fundamental rules of democracy and human rights.

He led a hate campaign against journalists in particular by lambasting them repeatedly on air accusing them of conspiracy. This encouraged his party thugs to target journalists and they did at every opportunity. On May 28th, as all media took strike action in Greece, a group of motorcyclists wearing Chrisi Avgi insignia stormed a strikers’ rally outside the ministry of labour.

Our union in Greece, the Journalists’ Union of Athens Daily Newspaper condemned the TV incident and the behaviour of Golden Dawn’s spokesperson which it calls “a bomb ready to blow up democracy’s foundations”. The union said “The essence of democracy entails respect for dialogue and the right to disagree. Spreading hate, defending race discrimination, the ‘pure race’ and practicing violent acts on their behalf the way Chrysi Avgi does, are only featured in totalitarian regimes… Once more we have proof of Chrysi Avgi not being a political party that respects democratic rule but an organization of thugs, ready to take matters into their hands.”

The incident raises important questions for journalists – should they give a platform to any organisation that peddles hate speech and acts violently against journalists and any other group it sees as opponents?

Such debates have already taken place in some of our unions like the National Union of Journalists in the UK. At several of their congresses, delegates argued over whether to “give a platform to fascists”. On one side there are those who argue that if journalists were to deny fascists a platform this would contradict the union’s position on free speech and gives the green light for anybody to deny journalists their right to free expression. The other side says that fascist parties have stepped out of consensus politics and are a threat to democracy. In practice they use parliamentary politics to give a veneer of legitimacy to hate speech and to get away with violence. These parties don’t deserve to be given a platform and treated as other democratic organisations.

What both sides agree on is that their union should give unconditional full support to any of its members who refuse an assignment to interview members of fascist organisations or carry their material. The debate tilted in favour of the union promoting guidelines among journalists that declare boldly that “the growth of facist parties pose a threat to democracy, the rights of trade union organisarions, a free trade and the development of social harmony”.

The union advises its members not to “sensationalise by reports, photographs, film or presentation the activities of racist organisations; to seek to publish or broadcast material exposing the myths and lies of racist organisations and their anti-social behaviour; not to allow the letters column or 'phone-in' programmes to be used to spread racial hatred in whatever guise; and, when interviewing representatives of racist organisations or reporting meetings or statements or claims, to carefully check all reports for accuracy and seek rebutting or opposing comments, and expose the antisocial of their views.”

Within the IFJ the NUJ joined forces throughout the 1990s with its sister unions in the Netherlands, Belgium and Finland to set up the International Media Working Group Against Racism and Xenophobia which became one of the most active structures in the IFJ. Its most important contribution was the drafting of guidelines for everyday reporting and suggestions for reporters on how to deal with assignments that involve racist or extreme right wing groups that promote racism and intolerance.

Twenty years later the incident at TV ANT 1 is a reminder that all these issues have not gone away and need revisiting again and these structures dusted up and put back to work.

Pathetic hysterical hit piece on GD by Zionist CIA front Al Jazeera Balkans. Saudi Qatari Turkish American funded Balkan Al Jazeera is made for all banana 'countries' of the former Yugoslavia, it is part of the ZOG occupation, pushing the NATO narrative of the wars and supporting foreign interventions in Libya Syria, and globalism in general. Language is Serbo-Croatian. Same old lies regurgitated, also linking them to 'Serbian war crimes'. They throw up some filthy local commie swine to slander G.D. It should be noted that the 'Islamic' Al Jazeera says the exact same things about GD as CNN BBC Fox etc. The fact that all world media are in complete agreement on this issue and that there is no room for alternative views should be enough for people to understand just what is going on and how the jews through the US govt. and their military enforcer control and influence all media outlets around the globe.

Media people are the most contemptible putzes on two legs. Our local paper in town charges $120 a year. Online, you can read 15 articles a month for free, after that they want you to pay about$11. What kind of business model is this? I don't see how anyone can afford to print newspapers any longer. And of course, what do you get for their unique content? A third-rate milquetoast illiberal's silly editorials that are 100% predictably on the side of the state and government expansion. Yet, in that characteristically afraid to be not-nice way, the pokes at System conservatives are always safety-tipped, just to be sure.

Human veal...as far as the eye can see.

The whole EU establishment always viewed Greece as being very 'problematic' during the 90s for not towing the party line 100% during the Bosnian and Kosovo wars. Greece was also the only EU country whose media was more balanced when reporting the war, giving air time to the Serb side as well, which no western media ever did.
GD and the Greek Right have been targeted for years now, but the venom was not only reserved for them but also for Greek society in general, whose 'sin' is that it viewed Serbians as a friendly nation and didn't want any part of NATO attacks on a country they always enjoyed good relations with.

See it was ok for Turks Pakis Arabs muslim niggers from Africa Chechens and Western countries to send men money and weapons to the muslim side in Bosnia and Kosovo with no one making an issue out of it, but when a few Greeks decide to come to Bosnia and fight on the Serb side then the western media and local Greek leftist traitors go ballistic. The hypocrisy of the left knows no bounds.

There were some GD members who were in the Greek Volunteer Guard and this has been made an issue in Greece due to the anti Greek leftist scum who get their orders from the globalists/EU.

The wiki article is biased refering to Srebrenica sa a 'massacre', but you should get the picture.


Quote:
Greek Volunteer Guard

The Greek Volunteer Guard (Serbian: Grčka Dobrovoljačka Garda, Greek: Ελληνική Εθελοντική Φρουρά) was a unit of Greek volunteers that fought in the Bosnian War on the side of Bosnian Serbs. Some members of the unit are alleged to have participated in the Srebrenica Massacre and reportedly hoisted a Greek flag over the town on Ratko Mladić's instigation.[1][2]


History

The first detachment of Greek volunteers in Bosnia arrived in 1993. In March 1995, the Greek Volunteer Guard (ΕΕΦ), a contingent of one hundred Greek paramilitaries formed at the request of the Chief of Staff of the Bosnian Serb Army Ratko Mladić, became a regular fighting unit of the Drina Corps with its own insignia, a white double-headed eagle on a black background. The unit, led by Serb officers, was based in Vlasenica, an ethnically-cleansed town in the Drina Valley.[3]

Some of the volunteers had links with Golden Dawn (Χρυσή Αυγή), a Greek neo-Nazi organisation,[4] and others were mercenaries. They were allegedly motivated to support their "Orthodox brothers" in battle.[5]

Archbishop Seraphim of Athens had invited Bosnian Serb leader Radovan Karadžić to visit Athens in 1993. At a mass rally attended by some Greek politicians, Karadžić proclaimed: "We have only God and the Greeks on our side."[6]


Presence at Srebrenica in July 1995

In 2002 the Dutch NIOD report on Srebrenica described how the Greek Volunteer Guard, or GVG, unit had hoisted the Greek flag over Srebrenica after the town's fall, citing video footage of the event and excerpts from intercepted Bosnian Serb army telephone communications that included Gen. Ratko Mladić's specific request for the Greek flag to be hoisted over the town to honour "the brave Greeks fighting on our side."[7] The Report also revealed that the Greek government had sent shipments of light arms and ammunition to the Bosnian Serb army between 1994 and 1995.[6]

According to a report by Agence France Presse (AFP), a dozen Greek volunteers were alleged to have taken part in the Srebrenica massacre.[8] The GVG's involvement in the attack on Srebrenica was reported and several of the volunteers were interviewed in the Greek media.[citation needed]


"Unholy Alliance" and "The Greek Way"

In his book "Unholy Alliance", published in 2002, the Greek author Takis Michas referred to the claim reported by the Sarajevo weekly review “Global” that Greek paramilitaries had been present at the Srebrenica massacre and raised the Greek flag over the town,[9] reproducing pictures of the volunteers published in the Greek press. He also told how Radovan Karadžić had subsequently decorated the volunteers.[10] (In September 1995, four of the unit's fighters were awarded the White Eagle medal of honour by Radovan Karadžić.[3][6] Biljana Plavšić is also reported to have honoured Greek clerics who had provided spiritual support to the fighters on the Bosnian front.[6])

In the Ingeborg Beugel’s documentary "The Greek way" by Dutch public broadcaster IKON, investigating Greek complicity with Serbia in the Bosnian war,[11] a director of the semi-official Athens News Agency, Nikolas Voulelis, admitted to widespread censorship. The Greek media had been pro-Serb during the wars, sometimes portraying Yugoslav Muslims as "infidel Turks" bent on destroying their "Orthodox brethren". Voulelis said that "Editorial interference was a given."[6][12]


Public Inquiry

In 2005 Greek deputy Andreas Andrianopoulos called for an investigation. On 10 July 2005, 163 Greek academics, politicians, journalists and political activists issued a call for Greece to officially apologise to the victims of Srebrenica for any Greek role in the atrocity. After asserting that Greek public opinion had been misinformed about the alliance with the Milosevic regime, their statement called for the Greek state to apologise publicly to the families of the 8,000 slaughtered, to indict the Greek ‘volunteers' who had fought in Bosnia alongside Karadzic and Mladic and dishonoured the Greek flag by raising it over the carnage at Srebrenica, and to pursue the 'supposedly unknown' people who manipulated them.[13]

The Minister of Justice, Anastasios Papaligouras, commissioned an inquiry[5][6] which has yet to report


Volunteer response to allegations

In 2007 in the Greek nationalist paper Eleftheri ora Kyriakos Katharios, a member of the Greek Volunteer Guard, denied that they had participated in the massacre. While acknowledging the erection of the Greek flag, he stated that the honors received from Mladić were not linked to the incident.[14] In an interview with Al-Jazeera Katharios claimed that he had been telephoned at home by fellow volunteers who told him that they had raised the flag but had not taken part in the battle itself.[15]


Lawsuit against Takis Michas

In 2009 Stavros Vitalis, a representative of the Greek volunteers, announced that he was suing Takis Michas over allegations in his book. Vitalis maintained that the volunteers were members of the Bosnian Serb army who had simply taken part in what he described as the town's "re-occupation". In his press statement he acknowledged that “I was present with a group of senior Serb officers in all the operations for the re-occupation of Srebrenica by the Serbs”.[16][17] This was despite Vitalis telling the journalist Barnaby Phillips that although in Bosnia he was not at Srebrenica when it fell to the Serbs.[15]

Vitalis also claimed that Greek volunteers were recruited for the war in Bosnia with the implied knowledge of leading Greek politicians such as Andreas Papandreou and Constantine Mitsotakis.[18] Michas observed that the volunteers had fought in Bosnia with the tacit support of the Greek state. No-one tried to stop them and the Greek legal authorities made no attempt to assist the work of the International Criminal Tribunal for the former Yugoslavia at The Hague by pursuing inquiries about crimes the volunteers may have committed themselves or known about.[15]

The suit against Michas was funded by Panhellenic Macedonian Front, an umbrella group of Greek Macedonian nationalists.[16][17]

The campaigning organisation Reporters Sans Frontieres urged the Greek court to dismiss the action, which it described as "surreal" and a clear case of judicial harassment. Referring to the quality, thoroughness and courage of Michas's reporting of the Greek "volunteers"'military support to the Bosnian Serbs and successive Greek governments' reluctance to investigate the issue the organisation found the "self-censorship" of the Greek political class and media about the presence of Greek paramilitary forces in Bosnia and Herzegovina during the Srebrenica massacre "surprising and disturbing" and in the public interest called for further close examination of the role of the Greek authorities.[19]

On 17 September very shortly before the court hearing was due to commence Vitalis withdrew from the action.[citation needed]

This is a machine translation of a news announcement on the party website. My Greek correspondent is not available for an accurate translation. Any Greek speakers who could translate this accurately would help.

As best as I can tell, Golden Dawn denies that the police are helping them. They also complain about repeated attacks on their website. I have personally seen it offline several times. They claim that the Greek government is behind the attacks.

"The members of the throat portion of this let's not reassured because most cops are guarding them. As the saying goes: with one stone, two birds. " Extract from the invitation of the International Revolutionary Front, where the Golden Dawn stochopoieitai

Notice published on indymedia terrorist organization which takes responsibility for the arson attack on Microsoft. In parts of the text stochopoieitai directly, not only our movement, but our voters! (Now the relation of the Golden Dawn by Zionist interests Microsoft, only dummies lovotomimena university asylum know). But more interesting is the following quote: "So the members of the throat portion of this let's not reassured because most cops are guarding them. As the saying goes: with one stone, two birds. "

The anarchists are totally uninformed. No state power and repression ... guard the Golden Dawn. The safety of staff and offices of our Movement is based solely on our people. The state itself does not provide us with either the basic police custody are entitled to political parties. So let us leave theories anarchists, who have been repeatedly addressed the protection of state security forces.

Tick ​​one important detail, indicative of immunity paramilitary offshoots of the left. The website Indymedia, which publishes liability for terrorist murders, has not ruled out (through the SYZEFXIS) from the computers of public services. Instead, the site of the Golden Dawn remains blocked for years.

Thanks, Serbian - that's what I'm looking for.

Maybe it's me, but I really like context, only way I feel secure. Just knowing some random facts doesn't mean anything. It seems that a large part of whatever good online work can do is laying out the true context in which the various white peoples find themselves.

Smile Golden Dawn Leader Addresses Greek Parliament

Greek Parliament members are picking up their marbles and going home.
Quote:

http://www.athensnews.gr/portal/8/56808

Mihaloliakos says Golden Dawn in parliament is will of the people
7 Jul 2012



Mihaloliakos reminded parliament that Golden Dawn where there because the people put them there (Eurokinissi)

In his comments regarding the government policy announced by Antonis Samarason Friday, Golden Dawn leader Nikos Mihaloliakos decided to focus on his party's "outsider" status in parliament. "To begin with", Mihaloliakos said opening his speech, "I'd like to send a message to all those inside and outside this room. Golden Dawn is here because that is what 426.000 Greeks wanted. We still find it surprising that some parties choose not to understand the will of the people".

He was clearly talking about Syriza and KKE, whose entire parliamentary sections, exited the room when Mihaloliakos made his way to the podium. The Golden Dawn members on their part, rose to attention as is their much-publicised show of respect towards their leader. "Things have changed", Mihaloliakos said of Syriza, "and they just don't get it. They think that hey can gnaw away at this coalition government and form a government of their own, already discussing the renegotiation of the memorandum

Concerning his own party's stance, Mihaloliakos noted that they would not budge from their positions. "We will not change our positions on crucial matters of foreign policy such as North Epirus, Macedonia and its name, the highly suspicious way the Turkish consulate in Thrace is handling itself, as well as our continuing problems with Turkey. We shall not change our positions on the matter of the memorandum, the crisis itself, illegal immigrants and the issue of the escalating crime rate. For a start, the memorandum needs to be ousted. It's destroying out nation. He also referred negatively to the crucial role that the press and media have played, saying that they "have rushed to inform everyone how bad we are".

What was without doubt the rather strange highlight of his speech was the fact that at one point he referred to an MP (clearly someone in the current parliament) who he said had killed a girl in a car accident and had escaped justice. A voice was heard from the parliament seats, although what was said was not clearly heard, at which point Mihaloliakos took back his point, by saying that "perhaps he had been misinformed".

Following the conclusion of his speech the entire Golden Dawn parliamentary segment rose and left the room along with their leader.

Default Greek Patriot Stands Up to Cultural-Marxist "Women"

Violence against women is usually not permissible in my book, but these communist cretins deserved every bit of it. These women were known for pushing assimilation (race-mixing) on the Greek youth, and even called for a greater influx of illegal immigration. Greece cannot afford the latter, and no nation in its right mind should tolerate the former. The man doing the slapping is the Golden Dawn MP, Ilias Kasidiaris. The Golden Dawn party has attained the 'nazi' label from the Jewish press, indicating that they are doing a good job.
Outbursts such as this one will become more widespread once the people become awakened to the crimes and hypocrisy of International Jewry.
