Anti-Fascist Resistance in Greece Today: Golden Dawn and Lessons for the UK
Thursday 14th November at 7.30 p.m.
Chase Community Centre
Robin Hood Chase (off St Ann’s Well Road)
Maria Nikolakaki will talk about the rise in Greece of the far-right organisation Golden Dawn, which has been involved in brutal attacks e.g. on ethnic minorities and migrants. She will discuss recent developments following the murder of anti-fascist rapper Pavlos Fyssas, as well as Golden Dawn’s links with the government, police and intelligence services.
Maria will also debate the anti-fascist resistance to Golden Dawn, and what lessons can be learnt for anti-fascists in the UK fighting the EDL, UKIP and the increase in anti-immigrant and xenophobic rhetoric by all the main political parties.
Maria is an Associate Professor of Education at the University of the Peloponnese in Greece, and also an activist and trade unionist. She is a member of "Sispirosis", the biggest left coalition union of academics in Greece, and is currently involved in anti-fascist education work with secondary school students, a group that Golden Dawn is trying to recruit.
