The Rise and Rise of Greece’s Neo-Nazis (New Left Project)

As summer draws to a close in Greece, the latest opinion poll shows falling support for every party in Parliament. Except one that is – the neo-nazi Golden Dawn. From 6.9% in June’s legislative election, a Pulse poll for Pontiki newspaper puts the Greek fascists on 10.5% of the popular vote, 2.5% ahead of the centre-left PASOK, who previously polled 43.92% in Greece’s 2009 elections before watching their support collapse in the wake of the Eurozone crisis.
