nazi criminal gang of ôChrysi Avgiö (Golden Dawn) must be banned
The nazis being legal and in the seats of the parliament means the democrats
The Antinazi Initiative supports and takes part in the todayĺs protest
organized by the EGAM (European Grassroots Anti-racist Movement) in Greece.
At a time when the governments and the political parties in Greece havenĺt
organized a single real mass (in its political content) protest against
the nazis of Chrysi Avgi (Golden Dawn), this initiative gives encouragement
and boost to the struggle of the Greek democrats. It also sets the right
all-European dimension of the fact that a nazi murderous gang has entered
the Parliament of a European country 70 years after hitlerian brutality.
Such a gang must definitely be outlawed. Otherwise, no would-be victim
of them (immigrant, member of an ethnic minority, Jew, Roma, homosexual,
or a democrat defending them) could legally defend themselves against
their violence. How could a victim turn against a murderous gang which
is legalized by judges and by the police, and which sits comfortably at
the seats of the Parliament, being accepted by all parliamentary wings?
Thatĺs why the nazi groups are outlawed in the democratic countries. This
is also what the International Anti-racist Convention, ratified by Greece,
demands. Nevertheless, the state has refused to implement it since for
40 years it has not passed the respective national law. Especially nazis
inside the Parliament means that democracy is illegal.
The problem is becoming a nightmare since the traditional refuge for the
persecuted and the vanguard of every anti-fascist movement, the Left,
is under the guidance of leaderships that have been actively participating
in the legalization of nazis. As for these leaderships, not only they
hadnĺt denounced them for decades as nazis, not only they have sat with
them and co-decided for the sharing of the TV-time granted to parties
during all electoral periods, but recently they have also allowed them
to co-protest as ôindignantsö and shout ôburn down the Parliament-brothelö.
Worst of all is that they systematically leave untouched the racist core
of nazism, which is the anti-Semitism. This way, the soul of the whole
democracy is being poisoned and destroyed.
Thatĺs why the democrats, whether independently or following a party,
must today pose as basic demand the ôOutlaw now the Golden Dawn!ö slogan.
This must not only be addressed to the state in general and to the government
but also to all parliamentary parties, underlining their co-responsibility
in the legality of Chrysi Avgi (Golden Dawn). By this way the most pro-nazi
forces inside the state and the parties would be isolated and the rest
would be forced to move at the other direction. That is, the ôoutlawö
demand would play an active role in the formation of more favorable ratios
at the level of the bourgeois-democratic institutions. On the contrary,
those who leave the state and the parties untouched, with the ôrevolutionaryö
argument that the peopleĺs movement should move alone against a pro-regime
gang, on the grounds that all those institutions are essentially fascist
or simply bourgeois, objectively pay a great service to the gang in that
they acquitt their protectors.
Surely, the ôoutlawö demand is the basic necessary condition, but alone
is not efficient, for the formation of an anti-nazi front. This would
only be effective if it took the great majority of the suffering people
to its side. So, it should give its own convincing answers to the demagogical
positions of the gang and reveal the profound pro-regime and unpatriotic
character of it, proving that they are not ôrevolutionaryö and ôpatrioticö
as they appear. This would be a more difficult discussion inside the bossoms
of the anti-nazi movement, that will however be accelerated and cleared
out to a large degree by the more and more appalling and protected activity
of the gang. Athens, December 15, 2012
