“Golden Dawn is the bastion of our Nation” Article of N.G. Michaloliakos
Article of the Secretary General of Golden Dawn, Nikolaos G. Michaloliakos, in the national newspaper “Empros” (Forward)
From my speech in the Plenary Session regarding the vote of confidence to the government:
“The article 13 of the Prespa agreement provides that: “taking into consideration that the other country of this agreement is an enclosed state (Skopje), both of the two countries will conform to the provisions of United Nations for the Law of the Sea”. Well, this means that we offer to Skopje a passage to the sea, a fact that gravely harms our national independence.
This issue concerns greatly our national independence, thus the number of 180 votes in the Greek parliament is necessary for the validation of the Prespa agreement. So, I ask New Democracy: As a future government, will New Democracy denounce the Prespa agreement?
However, the most important part in this agreement, which government could easily use –provided that SYRIZA wanted to abolish this agreement- can be found in the first article of the agreement where “Skopje has to complete in toto all the constitutional amendments till the end of 2018”. Well, these constitutional amendments were completed at the 12th of January of 2019. The state of Skopje has already violated the Prespa agreement.
So, you have good reasons to denounce this agreement. Besides, in the motion of censure of New Democracy, which Golden Dawn supported, it is clearly stated that “The agreement with the state of Skopje is the icing in the cake that sparked the rage of Greek People”.
The vast majority of Greeks are opposed to this agreement. Also, this agreement has not been validated by the Ministerial Council. It is an agreement harmful for the national interests. This agreement acknowledges a “Macedonian” nationality and language for our northern neighbors and there is no word about the name. And on this part, New Democracy should present a clear start and give an answer, whether they will abolish or not the Prespa agreement. Will they deny any compound name with the term “Macedonia” in it? They have not yet given a proper answer, we have heard nothing about that.
And due to that, the bastion of our National Ideal is a political movement that vows: “No compromises for our Macedonia! “ and this movement is Golden Dawn. From the first moment, the Leader and the deputies of Golden Dawn sent a letter to the UN and to all the international organizations regarding the Prespa agreement where it is clearly stated that “the agreement for the Skopje issue violates the people’s sovereignty and the Constitution of Greece and thus harms the national interest.”
Well, if the country elects a national government, the government of Golden Dawn, this government will immediately denounce this agreement. Do you smile? Please! For 40 years you represented less than 4% of Greeks. The time of Nationalists is approaching. The time of Golden Dawn is approaching and when the time comes no state at our northern borders shall bear the name Macedonia”.
