50. Golden Dawn: The Anatomy of a Nazi Party in 21st Century Europe

This is a conversation with Loukas Stamellos. He’s a member of Greek grassroots media organisation OmniaTV and of the “Golden Dawn Watch” initiative.

Loukas and I spoke about Golden Dawn more generally, not just the trial that finally concluded that they are a criminal organisation but about fascism in Greece and in Europe more broadly. He was really able to link Golden Dawn’s fascism with wider trends such as nationalism and xenophobia.

The episode is available on the usual podcasting apps as of Sunday 18th 2020: Apple Podcasts, Anchor, Breaker, Google Podcasts, Stitcher, Radio Public, Spotify, Pocket Casts, Castro and RSS. If it is not available wherever you get your podcasts, please drop me a message!

You can view this episode as an informal second part to my previous conversation with Ghias Al Jundi, a British-Syrian activist, on the recent fires in Greece’s Moria camp for refugees and migrants. That being said, both episodes are also intended to stand on their own.

In terms of additional links, I have used two previous podcast episodes as part of my research for this episode. The first is a Guardian long read based on an article written by Daniel Trilling for the publication. The audio version is here. The second is an interview by the podcast Radikaal with Daphne Halikiopoulo, Professor in the Department of Political Science and International Relations at the University of Reading in England. The link is here.
