Greek’s Golden Dawn party, which has been identified by journalists and scholars as a neo-Nazi organization and is “tied to crimes against immigrants and ethnic minorities,” has set up an office in New York, according to the Greek Reporter and Salon. The party received 6.7 percent of the vote in this year’s Greek elections, securing 18 parliamentary seats. According to Golden Dawn New York’s official site, the organization has collected food and medical supplies to send to Greece.
“The Golden Dawn is the only political party in Greece that unapologetically stands for the sovereignty, security, and dignity of the Greek people,” reads the party’s site. “The party intends to reverse decades of unlimited third world immigration which has brought crime, unemployment, disease and possibly terrorism to the once peaceful Greek cities.”
