The rise of Golden Dawn in Australia and many other countries can only be explained by the sheer love of Greeks around the world for their ancestral homeland. These very people are not only migrants born abroad, but also 2nd & 3rd generation Australian born Hellenes.
Greek Australians are watching the destruction of their society back in Greece, and are looking to help their brothers and sisters from across the globe. Today in Greece, thousands of suicides have taken place since the beginning of the financial crisis, and the battered economy has now brought about rampant unemployment of over 25%, destroying the livelihood of Greeks.
We have sat by and watched corrupt politicians betray and sell out the Greek nation to the international loan sharks. The mass corruption of the political elite has added to the harsh and unfair austerity measures on the Greek people, thanks to the memorandum and the Troika. Today, the impoverished Greek people struggle to make ends meet, and the once great nation has become nothing more than an economic and social experiment of the Brussels Marxist elite, while serving as a refugee dumping ground for the European Union.
National threats against our homeland are unfolding, with Turkish fighter jets constantly crossing into our airspace, the government of Skpoje’s continued robbery of our name, heritage & symbols, and the Muslims of Thrace backed by Ankara who are now calling for independence. Violent crimes in Greece that were almost unheard of 25 years ago, are now happening on a daily basis thanks to the millions of illegal immigrants that have invaded our boarders, most of whom have not been checked for diseases or links to criminal & terrorists organisations.
The heroes of the Greek War of Independence shed their blood to free our country from 400 years of slavery, it is absolutely unthinkable that we should then just give away our homeland & become slaves in our own nation once again.
Putting aside the more overt threats to Hellas, many Greek Australians hold the morals and values of their parents and grandparents in extremely high regard. It is our very culture and way of life that is being attacked by the cultural Marxists through the promotion of decadent lifestyles in Greece. As Greeks continue to become more “Americanised”, the traditional Hellenic culture that we as Greek Australians have loved for so long is being pushed aside for fast food, drugs, consumerism, sexual immortality, atheism, alcohol, and greed. Academia, the media and the entertainment industry have attacked the traditional Greek family unit which is slowly starting to break down as more and more young Greeks are following the path of individualistic hedonism.
Greek Australians would love nothing more than to see a Greece that once again belongs to the Greeks. It is for this reason that the Hellenes of Australia support the Nationalists of Greece. Golden Dawn Australia has no intention to form an independent political party on Australian soil, nor to disrupt this beautiful country that so many Greek Australians proudly call home. We uphold the constitution and laws of Australia and hope that someday Hellas shows the same respect for their constitution.
Our exclusive mission as Golden Dawn in Australia is to:
- Provide relief to impoverished Greeks in need through aid, such as food & clothing appeals.
- Raise awareness in Australia about the situation in Greece.
- Stand in solidarity with Golden Dawn, to show support for those who are fighting for our people.
