On this day, we commemorate the bravery and accomplishments of Ioannis Metaxas, the leader of the 4th of August Regime that led Greece to a successful victory over Italian invasion in World War II.
What most people outside of Greece do not know, including many Greek-Americans is the reality of who made the national resistance possible, who said the famous “No!”…
There is a very good reason why most do not know, as can be illustrated in the video above. Both the “Conservatives” and “Social Democrats” constant try to hide the truth about the 4th of August Regime.
It was not the social democrats who introduced the 8 hour work day in Greece, and it was not the “conservatives” who organized the military to defend our nation during those years. While the communists were turning eastern Europe into a. giant slave labor camp, the Social Nationalists of the 4th of August were introducing protections to workers rights and a healthcare system. They don’t like Greek schoolchildren to see this footage because it contradicts the narrative that Greece was “fighting fascism in the name of democracy” during the second world war.
These same people who hide the truth from Greek schoolchildren about the 4th of August are the very same who persecute the popular national resistance of Golden Dawn.
Today the neo-bolsheviks, “radical leftists”, and the supposedly “patriotic” flag waving conservatives have all come out together to keep the Greek people slaves to International Loan Sharks.
They fear the truth getting out, they fear the day when the Greek people gain true independence.
