Thermopylae Annual Memorial 2007

On Saturday, 14th of July, the Golden Dawn Movement honored the memory of the battle of Thermopylae, in a demonstration true to the Spartan spirit of the Heroes of our Race, who came to the Pantheon through their sacrifice 2.500 years ago.

Comrades from all over Hellas came to pay tribute to the sacred land of Thermopylae, where the monument of King Leonidasʼ lays. They were holding the black and red flags with the symbol of Meandros and the blue and white Hellenic flags.

The ceremony started with the sundown, in a reserved and well mannered way. The first spokesman spoke about the significance of sacrifice and the message of Thermopylae that was carried through the years by the Heroes of our Race and Nation. The representative of the Youth Front, followed, mentioning the historical facts of the battle.

Finally, the leader of the Golden Dawn Movement mr. N. G. Mihaloliakos accused the modern Greek state and the politicians who degrade the Hellenic history and do not respect this sacred historical spot. He underlined that the new Spartans are the Greek Nationalists who hear the call of duty and even sacrifice their freedom, like our comrade Periandros.

After the speeches, the comrades lid torches, symbolizing the souls of the fallen, singing the Movementʼs Anthem and the National Anthem.
