Raise our Banners! Article of N.G. Michaloliakos
“Even if only one Comrade remains, we will continue to fight”
Our national poet Kostis Palamas had been waiting for a new birth, the birth of a strong castle to fulfil the destiny of our Nation. And this birth took place in Thrace, Macedonia, Epirus, Minor Asia until Sagar river. But then this march ended with the destruction at Minor Asia. However, the new birth will return to make the Greece of our dreams come true. This is the ultimate goal of GOLDEN DAWN.
Golden Dawn is not a parenthesis
The elections of the 26th May 2019 ended and the elections of the 7nth July are coming closer, so some people believe that Golden Dawn will end…They are wrong, they have misjudged our party and they will realize it pretty soon. I just remind them that Golden Dawn elected MPs and MEPs in six consecutive elections: May 2012, June 2012, May 2014, January 2015, September 2015 and May 2019!
In the political sphere of Greece from 1974 till today many different political parties emerged that after a short time were sunk. These are the following: “Progressivists Party” which elected a MEP only once. “National Party” which elected MPs only once. “EPEN’ which elected only one MEP. The party of Arsenis, a former minister of PASOK elected none. Same goes for another former minister of PASOK, Tsovolas, whose party “DIKKI” elected MPS only once. Even the political party of Antonis Samaras “Political Spring” elected MPs and MEPs only once. So, they should realize that GOLDEN DAWN is not a parenthesis!
In the evening of the 26th May 2019 I stated the following: ““I want to dearly thank the hundred thousands of Greek men and women who ignored an entire system and supported Golden Dawn. I want to congratulate the corrupted media and also the parties of the “constitutional platform” for their war against us, yet I also want to inform them that whatever cannot destroy us make us stronger! We lost a battle but not the war, we will return stronger!”
I still stay true to this statements, a short statement of 40 seconds, which was never broadcasted in any channel. They were boasting over our defeat in order to make the Nationalists gloomy and pessimist. It was a proud and passionate statement, so the media tried to hide it. Of course if I had made a sad statement, then the media would broadcasted.
However, dead Comrades, I remained proud even with cuffs on hands, so how could I tremble when I had and still have by my side 300.000 Greeks who disdained an entire political system, who ignored political parties and media and remained proud under the banners of Golden Dawn?
History gives lessons
In the sorrow years of our National Revolution, Imprahim had conquered almost the entire Peloponnese and Central Greece and he had sent a letter to last revolutionaries whose leader was Kolokotronis. The letter was the following: “Kneel to me. Stay away from any idea of opposing me. I came here to cut, to burn, to vanish your trees, everything necessary for your survival”.
Theodoros Kolokotronis answered him the following: “You may burn our trees, our homes, everything, we will not kneel. You may burn the trees but you cannot burn our land and this land will give birth to everything all over again. Even a single Greek standing, we will continue to fight!”
The 300.000 Greek men and women of GOLDEN DAWN give the same answer : even one single Comrade standing, we will continue to fight!
In the front are the Young
It is certain that without the high rates of abstention and the decreased participation of the young in the recent elections the outcome would be different. It will be different in the elections of the 7th of July. Why? The late professor Panagiotis Kondylis gives the answer: “Only where there is the boiling blood of the youth new world-changing ideas can be born, no matter how “primal” they seem to the eyes of hedonists or pacifists.
On the other side, we read the above at a newspaper of the Left: “The most worrying data is the popularity of Golden dawn among young ages, since 15,9% of them voted GOLDEN DAWN…The young express their disdain for the Greek political system by voting Golden Dawn…”
Young! Only the young can reverse this miserable regime, which has turned Greece into a graveyard of Ideals and Values! Only the young can carry the banners of our Fight, especially those young at heart! Because there are old men with a young heart and vice versa adolescents with a weary spirit! The young may raise our Banners, the Honorable Banners of GOLDEN DAWN, and a new day will rise for Greece!
