Kids to Hug Acropolis for Anti-Racism Day

 article2012.w_l

2,500 children will form a human chain round the Parthenon on Friday March 21 to mark International Day for the Elimination of Racial Discrimination. Their motto will be “We hug the Acropolis, We hug democracy, We hug humanity.”

Organized by the Greek Ministry of Justice, children of different nationalities and people with special needs will sing and release colorful balloons into the sky to sending a message “of a peaceful and creative co-existence of all human beings, without any racial discrimination.”

The Acropolis museum will later host an event featuring work by celebrated artists including Antonis Remos, Dimitris Mpasis, Melina Kana, Melina Aslanidou, Sonia Theodoridou and the director, Giannis Smaragdis, as well as from children of the Paladion primary school. The event will be attended by President of the Greek Republic Karolos Papoulias and by Charalambos Athanasiou and Konstandinos Arvanitopoulos, ministers of justice and education, respectively.

    The importance of this event is for the kiddies not confuse racism with illegal immigration. It would be interesting to ask them what Racism means to them.

    “of a peaceful and creative co-existence of all human beings, without any racial discrimination.”

    Being against racism is great. However some of the people the people that claim to be against racism are so virulent racist against Greeks they are literally trying to talk us out of ethnic existence (i.e. a suble form of genocide)

    Our politicians and leftist media are such deluded unprincipled cowards they can’t even face the reality we have been betrayed by both our allies and those that claim to speak for human rights. Rather than condemn Amnesty International and HRW for their disgusting evasion over FYROM’s irredentism and identity change, our cowardly politicians take their orders from them. (especially our leftists that parrot anything they say)

  • Leftist censorship

    Thats exactly what happens though. Our leftist imbeciles (and apparently even Samaras now) try to frame those that oppose illegals as “racist”.

    Unfortunately the imbeciles of GD play up to this stereotype which leaves us completely defensively against illegals. Incompetence everywhere.

    We have no political party willing to deal with illegal immigration but in a humane fashion. What we have is two extremes.

  • Christos

    So what are your criticisms of GD? I don’t support everything they say or do. But, for better or worse, they are the voice of Greek nationalism and will continue to be so for many years.

  • Leftist censorship

    That’s just it. They are not the voice of Greek nationalism. The voice of Greek nationalism are the Hellenists. Our idols are Plato and Aristotle not Hitler and Stalin. GD are the voice of foreign fascism.

    “In an article published in 1987 in the Golden Dawn magazine titled “Hitler for 1000 years”, its editor Michaloliakos showed his support for Nazism and white supremacy.[125] Specifically he wrote, “We are the faithful soldiers of the National Socialist idea and nothing else” and “[…] WE EXIST, and continue the battle, the battle for the final victory of our race”

    “He ends the article by writing “1987, 42 years later, with our thought and soul given to the last great battle, with our thought and soul given to the black and red banners, with our thought and soul given to the memory of our great Leader, we raise our right hand up, we salute the Sun and with the courage, that is compelled by our military honor and our National Socialist duty we shout full of passion, faith to the future and our visions: HEIL HITLER!” – Michaloliakos

  • Christos

    I think some members of the leadership admire Hitler as a historical figure. But to say they are Neo-Nazis implys that they support the German actions in Greece during World War II. Of course this is not the case. Why would nationalists support foreign rule of any kind? Golden Dawn is the only party advocating real Hellenism, and also the only party not influenced by cultural Marxism, globalism, multiculturalism, etc. I think the party is a lot more moderate than most people think. Do you really think hundreds of thousands, if not millions of Greeks, would vote for a Neo-Nazi party? XA has nothing to do with the Third Reich, and they have demonstrated that time and time again. XA stands up for traditional Christian values. They were the only party to protest the anti-Christian play Corpus Christi, while several SYRIZA MP’s attended the production.

    “some members of the leadership admire Hitler”

    Michaloliakos saying things like “heil hitler” and “with our thought and soul given to the memory of our great Leader” is treason.
    “Golden Dawn is the only party advocating real Hellenism”

    Skin heads, gestapo salutes, black shirted thugs, and dare I say it fundamentalist christians are not “real Hellenism”. Ancient Greeks believed in Zeus and strongly opposed christianity. (which was forced on Europe by Latin Roman emperors)

  • Christos

    I think that modern Greece culture is barely influence by Ancient Greece, we are more of a successors to the Byzantines that anything. If the left could see ancient Athenian democracy, they would call it fascist. I think many people stin Ellada that would otherwise support XA, are fooled by the Neo-Nazi smear. If you go to a meeting you will see they have nothing to do with Nazism. All kinds of politicians admire dictators of the past. Obama’s own adviser Anita Dunn, said she adores Mao and he deeply influences her. Plenty of prominent men have admired dictators, that doesn’t mean they want to implement their policies. Voting XA is a matter of national survival. Οι Έλληνες-Αμερικανοί θέλουν Χρυσή Αυγή. We don’t want to see Athens turn into Islamabad. You and me both know XA is the only party willing to protect traditional Greek identity, tradition, and religion in the globalized world.

  • Leftist censorship

    That’s what petty foreign nationalists with an ethnic insecurity complex say to try and distance us from ancient Greeks. On a very observably level ancient Greeks are by far the biggest influence in not only our country but theirs as well. The irony is our patronizing foreign detractors have far far less in common with their claimed roots then we do because of the overwhelming influence of Hellenism on the world.

    I don’t want to see Greece Islamfied OR christianized. If forced into a choice I would choose Zeus but reason is more desirable.

  • Leftist censorship

    XA isn’t helping Greece. It’s helping destroy it. Its fascism shenanigans is a propaganda wet dream for communists, Skopians, and anyone else that is antihellenic. Someone even remotely rational would know that associating themselves with fascism is political suicide. There was absolutely no need to bring fascism into the equation to be a patriotic Hellene. It shows profound incompetence.

  • The Truth is…

    Racism will exist for as long as we live not because we are or we hate others but because it’s in nations cultures…What we need more is justice for all regardless of their status…

  • Leftist censorship

    There exceptions like KKK, Golden Dawn, neo-fascists in Germany, occasional racist toad, etc, but for the most part post WW2 words like “racism” are abused by both extreme nationalists and leftists to shut down debate. Most people know by now every group has its brilliant folk and its duds. Fretting over percentages is like picking a bad baseball player over a good one based on nepotism rather than individual talent. A losing proposition.

    Golden Dawn think they are so clever but they are playing in bush leagues. Far more clever nationalists (in an insidious sort of way) are the disciplined ones that aren’t motivated by left wing ideology but pretend to be.

    They fund organizations that put “human rights” in their names and leftist oriented pro-multiculturalism media so they can manipulate actual leftists by appealing their emotions. They do this by punctuating their statements with buzz words like “xenophobia”, “human rights”. “minorities”, “racism”, “hate” and constant parallels to Hitler when discussing nationalists they are hostile towards….. then using much softer language when discussing similar if not worse behavior in their own homelands.

    Uncritical anti-nationalist oriented leftists buffoons of course immediately bend over. The leftists much like GD, think they are so clever.

    “But to say they are Neo-Nazis implys that they support the German actions in Greece during World War II.”

    and i quote directly from one of xaameriki’s director’s “This willpower that guarantees success can be summed up in this quote by one of the greatest warriors of the WW2, Hans-Ulrich Rudel: “Only he is lost who gives himself up for lost”.”” http://greece.greekreporter.com/2014/02/25/golden-dawn-cop-candidate-probed/#comment-1261126618

    mind you Hans ran multiple air missions against Greece during WW2 and was responsible for the deaths of many civilians and Greek Soldiers

Furthermore he capitalizes the pronouns referring to Hitler (“by Himself”, “His people”).

    The Greek’s race only hope of survival is to encourage immigration because Greeks have proven that their incompetence and thirst for corruption and selflessness only results in a failed state. Let the Africans, muslims, macedonians in and give them critical positions to save your race. But that is impossible because of the racism in your DNA.

  • Alex_Linder

    Greeks have no right to occupy Greece. This room is needed for Pakistanis and Nigerians.

  • Leftist censorship

    Hilarious a racist ultra nationalist Skopian trying to hide his identity by using id “happyCanadian” lecturing about racism. Give your lectures to fish like Thes8nike that fall for propaganda games Skopian.

  • Jay

    Canadians have got to be the most sheepish, gullible people on Earth, but I can’t believe that any of them, even on multiple controlled substances, would pen the above.

    “Racism” in one’s DNA is a prerequisite for group survival.

  • Leftist censorship

    He’s a Skopian ultra nationalist. He just manipulatively put “HappyCanadian”in his id to fool other posters. (His constant racist rants against Greeks and focus on Skopians is a dead give way).

    This behavior is repeated all over the Internet by Skopians (while their slimy “human rights” apologists pretend not to notice their irredentism to hide their shame for supporting them).
