Greece’s neo-Nazi Golden party has begun operating a market that provides free food packages to needy people provided they have “Greek blood,” CNNTürk reported today.
"This market is open to people who come from Greek blood. There are many people who have Greek citizenship [but do not have Greek blood]," a party official said. "You do not have to be a Golden Dawn member. If you are ethnically Greek, you can come to us and we will help you."
The reason for the country’s unemployment is immigration to the country, according to Ilias Panagiotaros, a deputy from the Golden Dawn.
"Some 1.5 million Greeks are jobless," Panagiotaros said. "Immigrants who have come from third-world countries are working instead of them.”
Several food companies in Greece are now providing food aid to people who cannot afford groceries due to the heavy economic crisis.
