Facebook group ‘Leme OCHI sti Chrysi Avgi [1]‘ (We say NO to Golden Dawn) [el] already has more than 11,000 likes. Created on December 2011, the anti-fascist group declares that “Fascism is gangrene, either you rip it off or it kills you”. Group members try to persuade people not to vote for Greek neo-Nazi party Chrysi Avgi (Golden Dawn) in forthcoming May 6, 2012, General Greek elections.┬áSofia Ignatidou in a Guardian article states [2] that “Greeks shouldn't let their despair drive them to supporting the dangerous and opportunistic far-right party”.
