The Golden Dawn fascists are keen to style themselves as auxiliaries helping the police and the state against lawless elements. Here’s a taster of Golden Dawns to come, I suspect. It’s at http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dhJntEn4ddA&feature=player_embedded and posted by the party itself, by the way. Two of GD’s MPs (Giorgos Germenis and Panayiotis Iliopoulos) were leading this ‘cleansing operation’ near Athens – destroying stalls where the owner couldn’t show a residence permit. There’s a rumour that they may be stripped of parliamentary immunity to face charges, though I doubt anything will come of it. Even if it does, it’ll just make a GD martyr (which is, I suspect, exactly what they’d like). Another MP of theirs did a similar thing in northern Greece recently. The GD certainly do like to portray themselves as state helpers here. From the press: ““The employees of the Public Order Ministry are paid through taxpayers’ sacrifices so they can defend illegal traders and illegal immigrants,” said Golden Dawn in a statement. “In their desperate attempt to excuse their tolerance over many years for illegal trading, they are accusing members and MPs of the party of usurping authority and causing unprovoked damage to foreign property.” The Public Order Ministry has reacted by instructing that all the activists, including the MPs, be charged.
