The hospital employees in Samos are being prosecuted for preventing a voluntary and racially-motivated blood donation organized on the 27th of April by far-right party Golden Dawn “for Greeks only”.

The employee union defended its prevention of Golden Dawn’s event by explaining that it took into consideration the wishes of the nation-wide federation of public hospital workers and the Panhellenic Medical Association, which called for an organized rejection of the blood donation organized by the “Nazi and racist Golden Dawn”.

The union also criticizes the hospital management and prosecution authorities for “prosecuting those who defend the true nature of voluntary blood donation, instead of acting against those who organize racist fiestas and so-called voluntary blood donations ‘for Greeks only’”.
