Golden Dawn have once again exploited the desperation of thousands of people who lined up for food. Members of the far-right party were this morning distributing food “just for Greeks” near their offices. The Mayor of Piraeus, Greece, Vassilis Michaloliakos had banned their planned use of the Municipal Theater Square for the stunt.
While the food distribution was in progress, reporters asked Mr. Michaliakos to make a statement. When he exited the City Hall, Golden Dawn members verbally attacked him.
The original plan was for the distribution to take place in the Municipal Theater Square in Piraeus. However, the Mayor banned its use, saying that it was shameful and ridiculous and would only result in the humiliation of people. Golden Dawn in its most recent announcement, verbally attacked Mr. Michaloliakos, claiming that he is “the mayor who turned Piraeus into Islamabad.”
Golden Dawn MPs Ilias Kasidiaris and Ilias Panagiotaros described those who banned the use of the Square as “scum,” and once more attacked the political parties verbally.
