Golden Dawn, from the first moment the news were released, condemned in every way possible the tragic crime in Keratsini. But the puppet masters that control the public life of Greece have devoted themselves to a which hunt, to eradicate the ideas of the Greeks. The political parties should be ashamed, exploiting a tragic event to serve the interests of their bosses, assigning a political character to a tragic event.
--Golden Dawn's press release regarding the murder.
In the recent past, the State used random attacks on immigrants, even if those attacks were caused by immigrants, as a tool to put an end on the Golden Dawn. But their lies were transparent, Truth shined on, and the tactic was abandoned. Then they banned all our activities, but our will prevailed, we ignored the restrictions and the violence of the cops, and did everything to help our compatriots in need.
But the elections are coming soon, Golden Dawn is poling around 15% (which we all know is smaller than the real percentages, as the elections of 2012 showed us), and the titans of international Capitalism must get their hands on the Greek mineral wealth. Golden Dawners, men and women, have embarked in a journey to liberate Greece from her oppressors, and unfortunately for them, we are successful. This troubles the ruling class. This provocation, that occurred few days ago, was a whole different plan that the usual. They claimed that we organized this attack, that more will follow suit, and that our end must come.
And now this murder, a murder committed during the viewing of a football match, that, like witnesses say, begun as a football related argument among fans, is being exploited in the worst of ways by the State, using the MSM to propagate the theory of an "assassination plan" Golden Dawn supposedly prepared and executed. A murder in the middle of the streets of Keratsini, on the eve of our victory over the municipalities and eventually Greece...
Distorting the events, they accuse all of our comrades as murderers, our Party as a terrorist organization. But actually, in the recent political history of the country, it was executives of the parties in the "constitutional alliance" that committed political assassinations. Of course the parties, pylons of today's Regime, never got punished or persecuted. But this event that Golden Dawn condemned without hesitation is the reason for the Police to invade all our offices throughout Greece, harassing our comrades. We will sum up those assassinations.
- The murder of leftist teacher Nikos Temponeras by members of the ruling right-wing New Democracy party
- The murder of a PASOK supporter by the bodyguard of a New Democracy MP
- The murder of a citizen with leftist beliefs by a member of the National Political Union (Whose leader was Mr. Voridis, currently an MP with New Democracy and supporting the ban on Golden Dawn's)
- The murder of a New Democracy Community Councilor by a PASOK supporter
On the eve of strikes and demonstrations it's profitable for everyone - and especially for the governments - to have people killed on either side, resulting in the radicalization of the "extremes" but leading to the rejuvenation of the Regime and its structure. If the murder in Keratsini isn't yet another conflict between two football fans that happened to have political ideologies, like we have seen many times throughout the years, then it's yet another conflict between two opposite ideologies that didn't act like political beings, but like hooligans.
It's not random that both the murderer and the victim decided to waste valuable time form their lives to observe the career of a shop that a football team is. So, in a poor neighborhood where young Greeks kill themselves and families destroyed because of financial difficulties or because they can't find food to eat, a Greek worker stabs another Greek worker and the ruling class stands nearby, laughing at the sight of the internal strife of the Greek proletariat.
This tragedy was bread and butter for the Greek authority, that politicized it, exploited it and paves a new way to exterminate our Movement, few months before the Municipal and European elections that would solidify our place in Greece. The perfect excuse to destabilize Greece, few days after another "attack" that was never requested, never needed, that would only damage us if we did.
Yes, it's true that the 34 year old leftist wouldn't think much about doing the same thing to a Golden Dawner. But on the other hand, someone with 2 kids and a wife waiting him in his house and barely surviving with their wages chose to implicate himself to a situation that didn't have a meaningful goal and risk everything to kill not the drug dealer that sells heroin below his house, not the politician that voted for the Memorandums, not for the uniformed Praetorians that guard the politicians and the capitalists, but a rapper he knew and could even drink his coffee with until yesterday.
It isn't the first time there is a dead body among the so called "far Leftists" and "far Rightists". Many were enraged from the murder and seek... revenge. But they forget that they themselves begun the vendetta, screaming "second round" "civil war now!" during a time in which those hypnotized by the propaganda of the System didn't have answers to basic questions.
Their actions isn't an attack against the Regime that oppress our People, but a provocation that keeps people with mutual heritage divided. We call our comrades to not fall victims to misinformation and to the plans of the political parties. They must realize that our enemies are on Syntagma Sq., driving expensive limos and eating in luxurious restaurants. As a great comrade once said: "We know who we fight for, who we fight against, because we fight, knowing that we have to fight!"
