Bring the Pain

Bring the Pain

Taken on 2012-06-27

We heard the sounds of growing chants during our first dinner in Athens. The voices grew in intensity, and then we noticed the riot poice had blocked all the roads to Parliament. These vehicles convey a "none shall pass" attitude. A quick check with Google translate showed that this was not a family-friendly faction as it might have seemed. It a neo-Nazi group called the "Golden Dawn" with a fascist focus on immigrants. And then I read that over half of the police voted for the "Golden Dawn" party. They grew from 1% to 7% of the popular vote in the 2012 election. At one point, they turn to someone who walked over from the Parliament building above, perhaps some of the 18 Golden Dawn party members elected to the Parliament.
