Millions of families are locked out of the health care system due to massive unemployment, worsening the humanitarian catastrophe in Greece. A Third World has emerged within the heart of Europe.

- According to an article from the Guardian UK entitled "Greece's Golden Dawn isn't a political party -- it's more like a criminal gang", Yiannis Baboulias offers scathing criticism, stating, "the thuggish members of the Golden Dawn, with their neo-Nazi ties and attacks on immigrants, should be banned from Parliament."

The article quotes Golden Dawn leader Nikos Mihaloliakos:

"We feel disgusted in the parliament," said their leader, Nikos Mihaloliakos, in a speech to his followers on 25 August. "If they want us to, we can abandon it at any given moment and take to the streets. There, they shall see what the Golden Dawn is really about, they will see what battle means, they will see what struggle means, they will see what bayonets sharpened every night mean." Holding torches, they shouted "blood, honor, Golden Dawn" -- a direct translation from the German "Blut und Ehre," the motto once carried by the Nazi SA. "It's you who are our Storm Detachments (Sturmabteilung). Let them come after you!" he continued, in his usual Nazi-inspired terms. Singing their official hymn "Raise the flags high" -- again, a direct translation of the Nazi storm troopers' hymn "Die Fahne hoch," -- young men and women call for open, violent conflict both with the state and with any opponents on the ground.

Baboulias asks:

"An organisation with explicit ties to neo-Nazism, advocating violence and attacking immigrants and anti-racist marches in the street: does this sound like a legitimate democratic party?"

- SYRIZA calls for mass participation and mobilization of labor unions and social movements on September 8.  A statement was issued by the network of unionists:

"The new austerity package calls for massive cuts of 11.7 -- billion, which will eventually reach 22 -- billion. The government's package includes new and massive wage cuts, pension reductions, the continued dismantling of social and welfare benefits, abolition or merger of hundreds of public assets, as well as firings and layoffs in the public sector."
