Golden Dawners were handing out flyers in English and French to tourists and other people explaining the terrible situation in Greece today, when fully armed police officers grabbed them handcuffed them and they are now being held at the police station.
Currently Ilias Panagiotaros, General Epitideios, and General Synadinos are on the scene protesting and informing people of the blatant disrespect for freedom by the Samaras-Venizelos Junta!
Here are some videos:
The following text was being handed out to tourists in English:
Welcome to the Land of the Light, Harmony and Zeus. We welcome you to the homeland of Homer, Plato and Socrates. You already know that democracy and the free Greek spirit were born in our country.
The last forty years, our country has been seized by corrupt politicians who, in cooperation with the Media, have embezzled public money and plundered our country, and they have delivered it to the international loan sharks and banking systems. The result of all these actions is not only an economic but a humanitarian tragedy to our nation.
Typical examples of this tragedy are the suicides, which have exceeded 7000 over the last five years. The Greek people, having respected the democratic procedure in the general elections of 2012 and the European elections of 2014, has elected Golden Dawn as the third political party in the Greek parliament. The junta of Samaras-Venizelos, the government of vested interests, corruption and betrayal, has not respected the verdict of the Greek people and through fabricated accusations (which even the Secretary General of the government, P.Baltakos, has admitted) led to the imprisonment of the Leader of Golden Dawn, Nikolaos Michaloliakos, as well as a significant number of its members of parliament and fellow campaigners. They have also imposed home restrictions on other party politicians and through a decision of international origin, they forbade two members of parliament from speaking publicly.
On the 1st of November 2013, in an attempt to intimidate and terrorize the Greek people, the government and the state, in full cooperation, murdered two young fellow campaigners of Golden Dawn, Giorgios Fountoulis and Manolis Kapelonis. After nine months, the perpetrators are not even being searched for the prosecuting authorities.
The only crime committed by the Leader of Golden Dawn and the rest of the fellow campaigners is the LOVE FOR THEIR COUNTRY AND THE TRUTH.
Their only mistake is their unshakeable faith in the ancient Greek ideas and virtues.
It is obvious, therefore, that our country is living in dark times and deliberate obscurity.
We, as Greek Nationalists, are fighting to free our country from local and foreign economic intruders.
FREEDOM TO THE NATIONALIST POLITICAL PRISONERS OF GOLDEN DAWN.”
