Golden Dawn definitely not Nazis, photos confirm
The leaders of Greece’s Golden Dawn, who are charged with running a criminal organisation, said to prosecutors today:
We are not Nazis. We are proud Greek Nationalists.
Today the Editor’s Newspaper (Εφημερίδα των Συντακτών) published the following material.
Here is the party’s leader Nikos Mihaloliakos not being a Nazi.
Here is Golden Dawn MP, Christos Pappas, not being a Nazi.
Here is Christos Pappas again, in front of the German cemetery, where allegedly he held an all-night vigil every year with other Golden Dawn members on the 20th of April, Hitler’s birthday, not being a Nazi.
Here is leader Mihaloliakos and Pappas, not being Nazis together.
Here is a selection of the material from today’s paper, including Golden Dawn MPs definitely not being Nazis at Golden Dawn meetings, definitely not wearing Nazi insignia, definitely not displaying pictures of Hitler or SS flags and definitely not saluting Mussolini’s mausoleum in Rome.
Golden Dawn have issued a statement saying these were youthful mistakes. Here is Pappas inside Mussolini’s mausoleum again in 2009, at the age of 47, being youthfully mistaken.
Here is Golden Dawn MP and, recently, Athens Mayoral candidate Ilias Kasidiaris, after a winter solstice all-nighter during which new Golden Dawn members were sworn in, not being a Nazi. This was in December 2012, while he was already an MP.
