Stubborn Greeks still support neo-Nazis

Exactly a year after the murder of the Greek hip hop artist and anti-fascist Pavlos Fyssas by a member of the neo-Nazi Chrysi Avgi party, the latter continues to be the third-strongest political force in the country according to recent surveys. The Greeks learned nothing from the attack, the conservative daily Kathimerini criticises: "This year the theory that the confused voters would soon return to the right path has been disproved. A theory that many found convenient. ... In the European elections in May one in ten voters voted for this party because they identified with it despite being aware of its ideology and its bloody consequences. They stubbornly continue to support it even though there are no more doubts about the crimes of the party leadership, the party's paramilitary structure or the hatred of all that is foreign."
