Earlier today, The Greek consulate office in New York blocked our Twitter account. Why? Because of the following Tweet:
@GreeceinNewYork The Greek Diaspora Demands our right to vote!
Yes ladies and gentlemen, Golden Dawn committed the atrocity of demanding our right to vote in the upcoming elections!
Golden Dawn is a legal and democratically elected party, which was awarded the third place position during the last elections. As such, we are a voice for the Greek people. Golden Dawn New York won’t allow that voice to be silenced, and the Diaspora shouldn’t accept being silenced. We will continue to fight, and ask the Diaspora to fight alongside Golden Dawn.
Also worth noting is an opinion poll found in this past Saturday edition of the National Herald, which presented a survey conducted in Greece. The findings of this survey indicated that 78.2 percent of Greeks in Greece believe that that the Diaspora should have a vote. So, if we want to vote and the Greeks in Greece want us to vote, why can’t we? Why block us for demanding something we should never have to ask for? Why block the voice of the Greek people?
