Antisemitic and Racist Statements by Greek Political Leaders

Golden Dawn candidates have gained traction in national elections and the European Parliament, in line with a trend for far-right parties in several European countries. Golden Dawn denies being neo-Nazi or antisemitic, but their symbols and rhetoric strongly suggest otherwise. Party leaders are also unapologetically hostile to migrants and LGBT people. Many voters appear to be either overlooking the neo-fascist message or embracing it, even as dozens of Golden Dawn’s leaders and members are on trial for allegedly operating a criminal organization involved in murder, violent attacks, and other crimes.
