SPIEGEL: Greek Extremist ‘Golden Dawn’ Fosters Ties with German Neo-Nazis

Greek extreme-right party Golden Dawn (Chrysi Avgi) has established contacts to German neo-Nazis groups in Bavaria and is under the surveillance of the Federal state’s intelligence agency, German weekly DER SPIEGEL reported. According to several German newspapers and websites, a spokesman from the Office for the Protection of the Constitution in Bavaria gave this information after a question posed by journalists  on Monday. However, the name of the local neo-Nazi group to which GD has contacts with has not be released.

“The Greek right-wing extremist party Golden Dawn has established contacts with German neo-Nazis in Bavaria. The group, which is represented in Greek parliament, is also attempting to set up a cell in the southern German state.”

“The Greek right-wing extremist party Golden Dawn is establishing close contacts with Bavarian neo-Nazis and began setting up a cell in Nuremberg last year. The party, known in Greek as Chrysi Avgi, even held a conference in the southern German city recently.

 Bavaria’s state intelligence agency is particularly interested in meetings that have been taking place between right-wing extremists from Greece and those in Bavaria.” (DER SPIEGEL)

Explaining to German audience who is Golden Dawn and why it gained support following the debt crisis and the radical austerity measures, DER SPIEGEL quotes an official from the Federal Office for the Protection of the Constitution:

“A spokesman for the Bavarian arm of the Federal Office for the Protection of the Constitution told SPIEGEL ONLINE: “Golden Dawn has an international network of contacts and also has contacts with Bavarian neo-Nazis. These contacts are nurtured through mutual visits and at meetings at right-wing extremist events in Europe.” (DER SPIEGEL)

Last week, an umbrella organization of Greek communities in Germany has called on all Greeks in Germany to reject attempts by neo-Nazis to promote “violence, intolerance and social cannibalism.”

  1. It is hard to believe they would risk the support they have in their own country to align themselves with a true neo-nazi party that caused the people they defend so much suffering. One that the Germany of today distances itself from, morally and legally.

    No one can that stupid and hypocritical, in all fairness. Sounds profoundly astounding to me, unless their stance on immigration problems are misconstrued or taken out of context.

    So when will the IRA open up a X.A.-chapter in Belfast or will it be the terrorized migrants to open up a IRA-Branch in Athens?

  4. Seeing how Golden Dawn wants to invade the Republic of Macedonia and murder everyone in that country, doesn’t that make them the allies of everyone in Greece? I’m sure you would accept a 100% tax hike by GD if they sent everyone in R.Macedonia into the gas chambers! You hypocrite scum.

    Nope.

    Wrong again.

    You hypocrite scum.

    Someone forgot to take his pills again. Or should I ask in which country they forgot to lock the door of the lunatic asylum again?

  6. Sounds like more lies for the cowering sheep.
