The proposal made by prosecutor Dogiakos illuminates the criminal actions of Golden Dawn member with a slew of evidence that leaves no room for doubt, in case some insist on being skeptical of this organization’s nature and goals. The proposal also clarifies that the denunciation of Parliamentary institutions “clearly stems from comments they have themselves, which, as documented verbatim, include constant and repeated unethical acts, extreme phrasing and attacks, as well as insulting behavior in Parliament and beyond”.
Despite efforts of its leader and the leadership group to deny the actions of its members, Golden Dawn is clearly proven to have consciously and repeatedly carried out criminal actions against political opponents as well as unsuspecting citizens, Greeks and migrants. This is demonstrated not just by the great volume of evidence included in the case file, but also from the revealing articles in the press.
It is clear that Justice will have the final word in addressing charges for these criminal acts and will decide who is responsible and for what reason. Beyond the given criminal responsibility though, it is time that those who insist on accepting or even voting for them to realize that behind the anti-systemic and anti-bailout rhetoric, they are a party that is working towards abolishing democracy, harbors fascist ideas and has no place in a democratic country.
You can disagree all you want regarding the role, choices and responsibilities of politicians. But you cannot resort to those who invest in hatred and blood to find a way out, in the name of rage and the problems you face. The real problems in a democracy, the mistakes and delays of politicians are neither addressed with civil war practices, nor with the abolition of democracy, as Golden Dawn has been trying. It is a great shame for the country priding itself for giving birth to democracy to have citizens who despite the slew of revelations insist, even if it is just in the polls, to place their hopes in Golden Dawn…
