On the 18th of September 2013, a young man named Pavlos Fyssas, was stubbed to death by an active supporter of the neo-nazist party of Golden Dawn in Athens, Greece. That was just the last of a long list of incidents that took place in Greece during the last years due to the influence of the Golden Dawn on poor and uneducated layers of society. Immigrants, communists, antifascists were on their target. Now that blood has spilled on the streets and the stains are on Golden Dawn’s hands, their criminar, fascist, neo-nazist nature can no longer be disputed.
It is about time to STOP them from poisoning our societies with hatred. It is about time to STOP them from emerging again through our darkest memories. It is about time to STOP neo-nazism once and for all.
Greek goverment with the support of the European Institutions has to take measures immediatelly to outlaw this party, dissolve their organisations and investigate any punishable criminal acts so far.
The E.U. should also adopt an European Anti-Fascist Treaty, clarifying that such theories and deeds are insulting to humanity and can not breed under lawful democratic states.
“First they came for the communists,
and I didn’t speak out because I wasn’t a communist.
Then they came for the trade-unionists,
and I didn’t speak out because I wasn’t a trade-unionist.
Then they came for the jews,
and I didn’t speak out because I wasn’t a jew.
Then they came for me,
and there was no one left to speak for me.”
