Anti-Immigrant Sentiment In Greece Is Growing Steadily Worse

 Sep. 1, 2012, 11:33 AM |

The news highlights one worrying trend in Greece — In the past year, Greece’s Golden Dawn party’s rise in popularity, along with a rise in violence against immigrants, have followed each other step by step. The stories about violence against immigrants are alarmingsometimes gruesomeand growing in number.

With a five year long recession only being exacerbated by austerity measures, resentment against the rest of Europe (especially Germany) has been accompanied by resentment against immigrants, who are portrayed as taking the resources, jobs, and opportunity meant for Greeks. The Golden Dawn party has capitalized on this phenomena, surpassing the 3% threshold in Greece’s Parliamentary elections needed for representation.
Golden Dawn appeals to a country hit by tough times. At one event, Golden Dawn members and supporters handed out food in front of the Parliament. There was a catch, however — they only gave out food after people showed ID cards proving they were citizens. Regardless, events like these have helped to combine their messages and in effect, soften the anti-immigration policy into the mainstream. Critics argue that these events are only a smokescreen for the more violent acts carried out by Golden Dawn members.

Op-Ed: Poll – Greece’s Golden Dawn gains support as other parties fall

Sep 2, 2012  

Athens - A new political poll published in Greece shows that support for each of the main political parties has fallen since the June 17 election. The only party to make a significant gain is Golden Dawn, increasing its share of the vote from 6.92 to 8.6 percent.
The latest poll shows that support for the far-left has declined over the summer, whilst the far-right has gained support. Golden Dawn (Chrysi Avgi) has come out of nowhere to become the fourth largest political party in Greece, with a larger support base than the Democratic Left which forms part of the coalition government.
This is in spite of concerted efforts in the international press to depict Golden Dawn as neo-Nazi, while supporters view it as nationalistic rather than extreme. The party maintains the attempts to malign them are not only ridiculous slander but libelous, noting the Greek people now understand correctly that they are a Nationalistic movement. Their continued distribution of food to needy Greeks suffering under austerity measures, has gained them support, though their efforts have been criticized as they only provide food to Greek citizens.

Greece ‘battling’ with racism-fuelled crimes

Greece’s public order minister said that Greece was now grappling with a “new phenomenon” of racism-fuelled crimes, but insisted that sweeps against illegal migrants should expand.
Racist violence is a “new phenomenon,” the minister Nikos Dendias told Kathimerini newspaper in an interview published Sept. 2. “For the police, this ‘field’ is terra incognita [unknown land]. Racist crime is a complex issue,” he said.
As Greece struggles with a fifth year of recession, a crippling economic crisis and austerity measures, the country has recorded a rise in social tensions and racist attacks, prompting international concern. In mid-August, a young Iraqi was knifed to death in Athens by five men in a hate attack after a police sweep to clear the capital of illegal immigrants. Police have arrested thousands of undocumented immigrants in a series of sweeps, sparking protests by human rights groups.
‘Question of survival’
Dendias, who has said in the past that ridding Greece of illegal immigrants was a “question of national survival,” underlined anew the importance of expanding the sweeps to the rest of the country. He added that an evaluation of the operation would be made on Dec. 31 and will set up next steps on the issue.

Hardcore Gangs Hit Ohio Suburbs GANGS IN THE ’BURBS
Subversive element creeping beyond Columbus’ borders
Last year, Westerville North High School suspended two students who flashed MS-13 hand signs and drew gang insignia during an English-asa-second-language class. MS-13, or Mara Salvatrucha, is a notoriously violent street gang with roots in Los Angeles. It was formed by immigrants from El Salvador.

Gang crime isn’t nearly as serious or common in the suburbs as in some Columbus neighborhoods, but suburban schools and police departments are increasingly on watch.
"It’s not so centralized in the inner city as it used to be," said Pat Brooks, a veteran Columbus police gang unit officer.

Suburban police call Brooks and his colleagues when they suspect gang activity in their jurisdictions.

Most of the crack dealers in Reynoldsburg are gang members who live in Columbus, said Tye Downard, a Reynoldsburg police narcotics detective.

They go there to make mor…
