Golden Dawn: “Thug Politics”

Austerity measures are biting harder than ever in Greece, with people losing their homes and jobs and becoming more and more desperate. And they’re turning in increasing numbers to the far right Golden Dawn party, which lays the country’s troubles firmly at the feet of immigrants and Greek politicians.

Evan Williams reports from Athens on the party’s rise to become the third biggest force in Greek politics, but also the stark similarities with the German Nazis.

Evan talks to Darren Mara from SBS World News Australia Radio about his story, and gives more detail about the opposition to Golden Dawn in Greece.
