article imageGolden Dawn rage, hurl insults, in Greek Parliament (video)

By Katerina Nikolas     Oct 6, 2012 in Politics
Athens - Golden Dawn MPs disrupted a session of Greek Parliament on Friday as they erupted in rage. The chrysafgites demanded the now infamous "Lagarde List", hurling insults at PASOK's Ioannis Maniatis, shouting "you're thieves and scammers, and you're bums."
The disruption began when Ilias Kasidiaris berated PASOK's Evangelis Venizelos's television interview on Mega, where he tried to excuse losing the "Lagarde List", saying "It has caused vomiting throughout society."
Kasidiaris then went on to accuse former PASOK Greek Prime Minister George Papandreou of being only 25 percent Greek, and demanding a prosecutor tell Maniatis to "shut up." This prompted the parliamentary microphones to be turned off for a short interval.
The chrysafgites then rose as one body to exit the room when Maniatis said “stormtroopers will not pass." They hurled insults at Maniatis as they left shouting "you're thieves and scammers, and you're bums" as they accused PASOK of stealing from the country for 20 years.
Following the incident PASOK released a press statement denouncing the "vulgar and violent attack by neo-Nazis Golden Dawn." Chrysi Avgi's website carried the press statement which went on to say their behaviour raised the "issue of the functioning of parliamentary government. The professional bullies who try to exploit the distress of large sections of Greek society must learn to respect democracy and parliamentarism."
PASOK then called for the "immediate convening of the Conference of Presidents of Parliament to take the necessary decisions."
