Hundreds of Greek nationalists attended the ceremony organized by Golden Dawn in central Athens, in honor of the French nationalist Dominique Venner, who has ended his life on 21 May 2013, in order to awaken the consciousness of the Europeans.
The ceremony began with a poem written by the Youth Front, in honor of the great nationalist and French intellectual:
«He walked with awareness, sullen eyes on fire
Against the world that wanted him to lament…
«With a trumpet I bequeath to youth my ultimate experience:
With acts look for, the revolution against fate «.
The Secretary General of Golden Dawn, Nico Michaloliakos spoke about Dominique Venner, making a parallel between the act of the French writer and activist, and a Greek poet who wrote:
If at least, among the men,
Somebody would die of disgust…
And he raised the issue of the new memorandum that hands over to usurers even the archaeological sites in Greece, which provokes disgust.
The word also took Evangelos Karakostas, MP, who talked about the life of Dominique Venner, as well as members of the Youth Front, Lazaros Theodorakakis and Katerina Michalarou who read the message that Alain de Benoist wrote after the death of the great thinker, and signaled the social and human dimension Venner.
Last was up to the podium the director of the national newspaper «Empros» (Forward), Irene Dimopoulou, who spoke in the language of the deceased, spreading to the Greek, French and European comrades, a message on the life and teachings of the French nationalist, concluding:
«Venner did not want to inspire the rest of us to take our lives, which would be absurd. But he wanted to inspire us to take courage by putting our banner forward. We all know that there are some positive steps to be taken in order to save our race, constructive action that we could take, if only we were not afraid. But if Dominique Venner conquered the fear of death to serve our people, then surely you can conquer the fears that hold you. Our duty is to ensure that his sacrifice was not in vain. Forward!».
