Editors Note by George of Golden Dawn New York:
John Lagos of Pireaus, or “Yannis” as we call him in Greek, Is one of our comrades currently in prison due to the current persecutions. A well known figure in Golden Dawn, the media likes to portray him as a kind of brutal “leg breaker” or thug due to his appearance. It is yet another blatant distortion.
While I did not spend a lot of time with him since he was mostly in Pireaus, I recall a time in 2008 when John, myself and other comrades were riding the train to the Pireaus office from Athens, the train car was loaded with Pakistanis sitting in the seats, and we saw a elderly Greek woman with groceries being forced to stand while these invaders took up the seats, refusing to even think to let her sit down. John immediately spoke up and within minutes the Pakistanis were waiting for the next train, and the old woman was so thankful she could sit down.
The reality is that John is a man with heart and true compassion for his people and his country, unlike those degenerate worms the media who try and say otherwise.
Special Thanks to Kyriakos for the translation of this newspaper article published today in Greece:
Wednesday night. I sit in my cell. In the next cell is our leader Nikos Michaloliakos and with him the exceptional comrade Christos Pappas. Away from our people and away from those things which we have gotten used to, although far closer to our ideas. So much closer to ourselves. I march in thought with the comrades of our fatherland. The comrades of our nation. This is how it had to be. It had to fall upon us the weight of incarceration, of persecution, It is very possible that anyone of our fellow comrades could find themselves in our position. Anyone of those special men who for many years have competed against everyone and everything. And thus, this has not fallen upon “us” or “them”, it has fallen upon GOLDEN DAWN.
GOLDEN DAWN the thriller that has written a bright history. Organized in idealized myth. This GOLDEN DAWN that is difficult to fathom for all those fashionably vain and for all those political peacocks who believed they will turn us into them. GOLDEN DAWN who has battled for many years next to the Greek citizen. GOLDEN DAWN who is being persecuted by the spiteful admirers of contracted mega weasels . From all the big station owners and the schemes they implicate. GOLDEN DAWN who is honoured in the heart and enjoys the respect of every Greek countryman of ours. Of the Greeks who had not stolen , who had not sold their souls, who stand firmly in their principles and their values. GOLDEN DAWN who makes us proud. If someone asked me this minute if I would trade something to be “released”, I would answer whole-heartedly and honestly NO. I would prefer to be here 100 times proud of my values, and not in with the masses of degradation and the rotten. I am proud I am with my leader, that I am with my fellow comrade Christos Pappas. I am laughing hearing on the news them discussing “how we intend to kill”, I cant help but be induced into uncontrolable laughter. What kind of clowns are you?
Carry on you human puppets. Show us how low you can go, reach the quality of the “human garbage” that has manifested itself. Then you go to your homes and look admiringly into the mirror. Look well because across from you are every dispicable thing that exists. The “human garbage” that has probably reached the lowest point in human emotions. Look at your worthlessness. You are the worst. This too is a title. You have one meritably without resistance. By far you are the worst. Bravo to the “distinguished” journalists.
Fellow comrades I am proud of what I have done, I am proud that I am being persecuted simply for my political beliefs and the ideas I represent. We have shamed them up until now everywhere. On the streets, in the town squares, in the neighborhoods, in Parliament. Now we have shamed them from within prison. I am very proud of the giant men are being persecuted in this manner, and in return they spit in their faces. I am proud of the women tigers we have within our movement who have not lost a moments courage. For one of these women are worth more the 1000 mamas-boys that circulate outside. I am very proud for every one of you. And I thank God that he has found me worthy to be counted amongst the members of GOLDEN DAWN to live all this.
I feel blessed. Carry on strongly! Keep us proud, and in regards to us, do not worry at all. I swear to you we are more determined, more strong, and in good spirits. Brothers, hold your heads high. We will disturb them even more.
LONG LIVE GOLDEN DAWN!
LONG LIVE OUR LEADER!
