Greece’s Golden Dawn Party helped Srebrenica Genocide: report

nikoschurch

A Greek journalist writes that members of Greece's Neo-Nazi Golden Dawn Party helped Serbs commit Srebrenica Genocide.

Golden Dawn (Chrysi Avgi in Greek), the neo-Nazi organisation, received almost 7 per cent of the vote in the Greek elections of May 6.

An article, written by Neni Panourgia for Al-Jazeera, says "Dawn gained notoriety after 1991, when it started attacking the first Albanian immigrants and after some of its members participated in the Srebrenica massacre."

The organisation registered as a political party in 1993 and first won political representation in 2010, when Nikos Michaloliakos was elected to the Athens City Council.

On July 1995, as many as 8,000 boys and men were killed by Serb forces in an area that the United Nations had declared a "safe haven".

In 2001 the International Criminal Tribunal for the Former Yugoslavia (ICTY) judged that the July 1995 Srebrenica massacre was an act of genocide.

The fall of Srebrenica to Serb forces was the worst single atrocity during the 1992-95 war and the first act of genocide in Europe since the Nazi Holocaust against Jews.

The writer says "First of all, Golden Dawn, despite its recent claims, is indeed a neo-Nazi party. Their ideology, which they describe on their website as "Popular and Social Nationalism", gives their precise coordinates within Nazi ideology."

Seeing the issue " a European problem", the journalist says "Golden Dawn is a European problem, not a limited and containable Greek one. It is a European problem because its ideology developed and flourished in Germany and Italy of the early 20th century. It is not a "natural", essential, ontological property of Greece, and it is intractably connected to the moralistic and punitive positions that have organised the actions of the troika that put the bailout packages together."

"The troika (and particularly Merkel) ought never to forget the warning of George Santayana: "Those who forget history are condemned to repeat it", the writer concludes.

BOOK OF THE MONTH Zomia-women

The Art of Not Being Governed

The focus on Zomia is driven by the fact that the region is the largest remaining area that has not been integrated into a nation state. Indeed, for over two thousand years, the people living in the highlands of Zomia have lived outside the reach of the lowland government. The standard view of these "hill people" is that they are remnants of the pre-state period and represent a primitive form of living. Although book is focused on Zomia, it should be noted that governments and those involved in international development efforts tend to hold a similar view towards those living outside the reach of the state in other settings as well. Indeed, this view underpins the efforts to 'fix' the various institutions in societies around the world in the hope of bringing modernity to people who are viewed as primitive.
