Greek-Australians make statement against Golden Dawn ahead of court case

A statement condemning the acts of Golden Dawn, has been signed by Greek Australians ahead of the verdict on Wednesday. You can read it here-

As Australian citizens of Greek background we followed and condemned all these years, the criminal acts of Golden Dawn in Greece. We also were opposed to the extreme ideology and terminology expressed by their few vocal supporters in the community here in Australia.

We hope that the decision of the Greek court on Wednesday 7 October 2020, in the trial of Golden Dawn will put an end to this organisation. We hope that the court will rule that they are a criminal organisation and guilty verdicts on all charges will be handed down.

Further, that the leadership of Golden Dawn are held criminally responsible for the charges and that the crimes were not committed by individuals acting alone as the public prosecutor has argued.

A guilty verdict on all charges will ensure and protect the democratic values of Greece the country of our forbearers.

We also welcome the shared position of all the Greek political leaders and parties of a democratic persuasion who stand united in their opposition to Golden Dawn as reported in the Greek media in Athens.

The intimidation of citizens, the undermining of democratic politics and institutions through violence and murder or through racist and extreme language, have no place in Greece.”
