The trial of Golden Dawn has been delayed numerous times now. Defendants have turned up without lawyers or failed to appear at all. Witnesses have been attacked. The venue has been heavily protested. A new date is set for tomorrow.

Bracing for the Golden Dawn Trial

golden dawn speeches

It is going to be one of the biggest trials in Greek history. Beginning on the 20th April (ironically, Hitler’s birthday), 70 members of Golden Dawn will go on trial for running a criminal organisation, murder and assault charges, illegal weapons charges and money laundering as well as numerous other crimes. The trial will be held […]

Golden Dawn Trial Begins April

golden dawn speeches

  16 Golden Dawn “MPs” and dozens of “party” members will go on trial on April 20th (ironically, Hitler’s birthday). I will be following the trial very closely and reporting as much as I can here. In the meantime, here’s John Oliver on what is obvious to most people but seemingly not to the 6% still […]

3 GD MPs To Be Released Under House Arrest

Golden Dawn’s Racist Leader:

I feel like I keep stating the obvious over and over but not really being heard or being told I’m wrong or paranoid or exaggerating. Golden Dawn is a racist, xenophobic, homophobic, anti-Semitic, anti-Muslim, anti-democratic, violent “party”.... Click on image to read more

We must be prepared for rants, lies and far-right propaganda from the Golden Dawn gang, some of whom are set to be released from custody and put under house arrest. We must remain vigilant and expose the neo-Nazis for what they are and not allow any misgivings about the present government to translate into votes for their […]

Golden Dawn Trial in April

The Trial of Golden Dawn: 

As it has been repeatedly said, prosecuting Golden Dawn is about prosecuting criminal activity. Any interest in the national-socialist (Nazi) ideology arising from the investigation only concerns the perpetrators’ motives and does not involve any kind of prosecution of individual beliefs....

The trial of the Golden Dawn gang is due to begin in April. Unfortunately, the limit of pre-trial custody will be over before it starts so we will no doubt see and hear plenty of tantrums and ranting from the “party”.  I sincerely hope that there isn’t a huge upset before the trial even begins and that the evidence (and […]

Golden Dawn Leader and MPs WILL stand tria...

The "MPs" of Golden Dawn:

Chrysi Avgi (Golden Dawn) is an extremist far right “party” that entered parliament last year with 18 seats, after years of being considered a loony fringe group of neo-nazis. First, there’s their leader, Nikolaos Michaloliakos. He has been arrested  several times for assault and was imprisoned in January 1979 for illegally carrying guns and explosives ....

The date hasn’t been set yet but the trial of the Golden Dawn gang will go ahead. The judicial panel has ruled that 70 members of the “party” including its leader and its “MPs” will stand trial for participating in a criminal organisation. The charges include murder, attempted murder, grievous bodily harm and arson. The painful […]

Golden Dawn Chanting “Sieg Heil̶...

golden dawn speeches

  I dare say that hardly anyone who reads this blog is in any doubt that Golden Dawn are neo-Nazis. However, there is still a persistent 4-5% of people who say they will vote for the “party” on Sunday in the snap general election. Here is even more proof (on video) of supporters including “MP” Germenis, with Nazi flags, […]

Golden Dawn Market Raid Trial

Many news outlets reported that Golden Dawn “MP” Kostas Barbarousis was acquitted over the 2012 attack on immigrant market vendors in Mesolongi without understanding or stating why. The raid was captured on video, showing a Golden Dawn gang entering the market and demanding to see identification and then proceeding to smash the stalls of non-Greeks. […]

Golden Dawn Offences from 1996

The True Colours of Golden Dawn:

Chrysi Avgi (Golden Dawn) is the far-right Neo-Nazi “party” that currently holds 18 seats in parliament. Many people stated that they voted for them to punish the mainstream parties such as Pasok and New Democracy, not aware of their hate filled, racist agenda .... Click on image to read more

As we know, Golden Dawn have been on the rampage since long before they gained significant support in the last election. Their known offences,which add up to dozens of lawsuits, date back at least to 1996. A document submitted to an Athens court on Tuesday lists dozens of lawsuits and convictions involving members and supporters […]

The Case Against Golden Dawn

golden dawn speeches

An in-depth article appeared today in Spiegel covering the prosecutor’s report on Golden Dawn which makes the case against them. The 697-page report from the public prosecutor’s office reads like a thriller. But it addresses things that people in Greece long would have considered inconceivable. It paints a picture of a neo-Nazi party that is […]

Golden Dawn Supporters Convicted

The Rise Of The Far Right Political Movement Golden Dawn

  Suspended eight months sentences for three men convicted of coordinated attacks against the Roma community in Aetoliko. Every time a case like this comes up, I hold my breath and hope; hope that justice will one day really be done. Sadly, once again, we see that racist/hate attacks are not taken seriously in Greece. […]

Golden Dawn: Criminal Organisation

messages of hate

I have been saying this for years; Golden Dawn is not a legitimate party and never should have been allowed to be part of the electoral system. I have always used quotation marks when referring to them as a “party” or to their leaders as “MPs”. They are not. It has been known for years […]
