Greek Neo-Nazi Party Wins Support on Anti-Immigrant Platform
May 8, 2012
Democracy Now!

Human rights and immigrant groups are expressing alarm over the success of the neo-Nazi Golden Dawn party in Sunday’s Greek election. The party received 7 percent of the vote and won as many as 21 seats in the Greek Parliament. In the previous election, Golden Dawn received less than 0.3 percent of the vote. The party, whose flag resembles a swastika, campaigned largely on an anti-immigrant platform. Thanasis Kourkoulas works with the Greek organization Expel Racism.

Thanasis Kourkoulas: "If they enter the parliament, and there is a short period of a parliament with them inside, this means that we will have more attacks to immigrants, but also more attacks to all the pro-immigrant organizations and left organizations and labor unions in Greece."
