Far-right Golden Dawn MPs organized a rally in protest over the imprisonment of its party leaders who face charges of running and belonging to a criminal group. Around 2000 supporters gathered, some of them arriving on buses from all over Greece. Athens, Greece, 26 October, 2013.
Golden Dawn leader Michaloliakos charged and arrested
The podium is decorated with blue and white colors and the Greek flag to emphasize the party’s nationalist credentials, instead of the red flags with the black emblem, the swastika meander pattern, that usually appear at the events until now.
Also surprisingly today Neo-nazi supporters have changed one word of the main slogan of the party. Usually the main slogan of Golden Dawn is "Blood, Honor, Golden Dawn". Today Golden Dawn supporters avoid to shout the word "blood", while the blood of the anti-fascist raper Pavlos Fyssas is still there on the pavement, who was stabbed to death by one of their colleagues.
Instead of the word "blood", they use the word "fatherland", and they shout "Fatherland, honor, Golden Dawn".
