Greek Authorities Arrest Five Senior Golden Dawn Leaders As The "Cradle Of Democracy" Moves To Crush Genuine Democratic Expression

The so-called "cradle of democracy" took steps this week to crush genuine democratic expression in their country. On Saturday September 28th, 2013, Greek authorities announced the arrest of five senior leaders of the Golden Dawn Party, a patriotic nationalist alternative to the globalist stooges in power in that country. According to assorted reports from CNN International, the New York Times, and the Guardian, police arrested Golden Dawn leader Nikos Michaloliakos, who is also a member of parliament, along with the party's chief spokesman Ilias P. Kasidiaris, another Parliament member, two other lawmakers, Ilias Panagiotaros and Yiannis Lagos, and Giorgos Patelis, the leader of the party’s local chapter in the Athens suburb of Nikaia. Media sources report that 10 other party officials were also arrested, and another lawmaker and more than 20 other party members are being sought; none have been publicly named as of this post.

Although Michaloliakos was taken into custody on charges of forming a criminal organization and had two handguns and a hunting rifle seized from his home, police have not yet released details of the other criminal charges. The arrests were apparently triggered by the disclosure that on September 18th, a man who said he had ties to Golden Dawn allegedly murdered an anti-fascist Greek musician, 34-year-old Pavlos Fyssas, who has been at the forefront of a Communist-led campaign to portray Golden Dawn as "neo-Nazis". Kassidiaris has denied his party's involvement in Fyssas' death, calling it a "heinous crime." Further fueling the government crackdown was the fact that 50 Golden Dawn members, armed with bats and crowbars, allegedly attacked members of the Communist Party, leaving nine people hospitalized with serious injuries. Recent Greek history explains the strong reaction by Greek patriots against Communists; Communists led a three-and-a-half year bloody civil war against the Greek government from March 1946 to October 1949, killing an estimated 158,000 people and dislocating over one million. One can easily understand why many Greek patriots believe the only way you can talk to Communists is with fists, boots, and bats.

In response, hundreds of Golden Dawn supporters, many wearing the party's black T-shirts, gathered outside Athens' police headquarters, spurred on a text message reportedly sent by the party to "support our moral and just struggle against the corrupt system". Even some mainstream Greeks are concerned about the implications of the arrests; constitutional law professor Kostas Chrysogonos said "This is without precedent in Greek political life. Authorities are acting within the law but I also think it would have been constitutionally more correct if they had asked parliament to lift their [MPs] political immunity first." Greek MPs cannot be removed from Parliament unless they are actually convicted of a crime. The Xaameriki website, operated by Golden Dawn sympathizers, contains numerous posts documenting the arrests and reaction in detail, and provides these short videos:

The objective of Golden Dawn is quite simply to reclaim Greece for Greeks. They fight against altering their racial demographics by millions of illegal immigrants as well as the dissolution of the Greek society promoted by both the coalition parties and the so-called left. They propose a national strategy so that they can overcome the crisis imposed upon their country. They don't want to become a squabbling multicultural cesspool like the United States.
