Greece must cut 4,000 jobs to earn its next bailout payment. But with each cut the government's control in the country is weakening, as the desperate populace turn to vigilante governance, Golden Dawn style.
As cuts bite ever deeper in Greece, many Greeks feel that the government can no longer provide the protection and services needed for a strong civil society. And in this frightening power vacuum the people have turned to another power: "If I get burgled or I have a problem and I call Golden Dawn, in zero time they are here," says local shop owner, Mathina. But Golden Dawn aren't just an over-active neighbourhood watch: "We are ready to open the ovens! We will turn them into soup." It's statements like these, from a Golden Dawn member running for parliament, that has immigrants in Greece living in fear. And their threats are not idle. Immigrants dragged out of A&E, businesses ransacked and racially-segregated soup kitchens have become commonplace. The checking of people's papers on the streets is scarily reminiscent of Nazi Germany or Stalin's Russia. "Greeks are hungry, foreigners are hungry. In the end one will eat the other," Mathina says simply. As more locals like Mathina turn to Golden Dawn for support it begs the question; at what cost is Greece's tough economic medicine coming?

A short documentary on the political party Golden Dawn in Greece, a far right, neo-nazi, racist organization. And somehow this scum fascist party has seats in parliament. Disgusting. Anyways **** these fascist neo-nazi turds.
This is what happens when the economy is so terrible, people dont focus on the main causes of the problem and instead like to put their blames on others, and in this case its immigrants, and minorities.
