Again, brassily and insolently, neo-Nazism raises a head in Greece – in the country celebrated for its heroic struggle against Italian and German fascism in the years of Second World War. The suit of Neo-Nazi Party Golden Dawn against EEK leader Savas Michail-Matsas and Professor Konstantinos Moutzuris, former dean of Athens Polytechnic University is a hard confirmation of this observation.
This suit with the accusations EEK, comrades Matsas and Moutzuris in the “instigation to the violence”, in the “disturbance of civil peace” is the example of hypocritical demagogue going out from party usual slogans of which are: “foreigners – go home!” and “Greece – for Greeks!”, from the party leader of which Nikolaos Mikaloliakos had already the conviction for bomb heaving in cinema-theatres demonstrated a left regisseuers’ films. And other leadership members of Golden Dawn were been also convicted for penal offences. And Greek court takes this suit against the internationalists, against the defenders of all Greek working people interests. Really, Greece is running mad (?!)
I’m protesting against persecution the anti-fascists Savas Matsas and Konstantinos Moutzuris, the fighters against budget cuts and measures of hard austerity, against mass poverty and unemployment, against the source of these problems that there are in the System itself. Coming trial – even it will be performed into not true, shameful judicatory over Matsas and Moutzuris – will be undoubtedly the political victory of these Greek left movement outstanding representatives over dark neo-fascist forces.
For united left and unions front in crisis-ridden Greece!
Non to new dictatorship regime in Greece!
