Hot on the heels of the Nazi Golden Dawn's launch of its New York section, they have now launched a section in Montreal.The white supremacist website STORMFRONT has enthusiastically been promoting the Canadian section of the Greek Nazi organisation.Golden Dawn has come to further notoriety over the last week over the videos of their members assaulting immigrants in the flea market in Athens.
The new section has been operating since the beginning of September. It has been ostensibly collecting for the poor of Athens. Although they make no bones about the fact that anything collected will only go to white Greeks.
As reported in National Post they are completely upfront about the racist nature of their organisation.
“[Golden Dawn] is blatantly and proudly anti-immigrant,” says Phil Triadafilopoulos, an associate political science professor at the University of Toronto.
“They combine the political ideology of extreme right-wing xenophobic parties with the ethos and tactics of a street militia.”
And when the group turns away non-Greeks, he says, Golden Dawn doesn’t care whether they are in the country legally or not. “They are anti-immigrant, period.”
Prof. Triadafilopoulos says that most Greeks have “deep misgivings” about Golden Dawn.
Yet the party is doing little to temper its image. Reports allege that members have begun patrolling downtown Athens, beating anyone who doesn’t appear to be a Greek.
There is however opposition growing to the presence of the support group in Montréal.

Golden Dawn is a Nazi & Organization that has been allowed in the Greek Parliaments, Greek courts have declared them LEGAL even though their actions and beliefs break European Union Laws, they are now being investigated by the European Union. We demand that Canadian government prevents them from establishing any Nazi organization in any shape or form. It is hypocritical to allow them to practice racism and discrimination in the most immigrant friendly country in the world! PLEASE SIGN THIS PETITION!
