Since 18 members of Golden Dawn were elected to the Greek Parliament in June, there has been international interest in the party. The party went on to open offices in Australia, the U.S., Canada and Italy.
Accused of being a Nazi organization, Golden Dawn defends itself against critics by stating it is a nationalist party which openly campaigned on an anti-immigration platform. Recently the party has itself suffered attacks at the hands of left-wing anti-fascist groups that have bombed party offices.
Golden Dawn has established itself as Greece's third political party, overtaking the decimated PASOK in the polls.
