Suspend the official Greek Nazi party blogs on Blogger

    1. Petition by

      Act Against Racism

We call on Google to follow the example of Wordpress and stop providing a free platform for Golden Dawn's hate speech and intimidation of journalists by suspending the official Golden Dawn blogs hosted on their platform.

Background

The Greek Nazi 'Golden Dawn' political party which recently achieved a historic high in the parliamentary elections uses Google's Blogger platform to host what appears to be a majority of their regional and outreach organizations as well as their online store (see list at the bottom).

On May 10, in response to growing concern over reports of violent threats against journalist Xenia Kounalaki, Wordpress suspended the party's official national blog.

As reported in the New York Times: "Greek journalists continue to face intimidation for reporting on the rise of a xenophobic party from the far-right...they sell copies of 'Mein Kampf' at their headquarters, wave flags adorned with a symbol that resembles the swastika and make Nazi salutes."

Reporters Without Borders has also issued a statement expressing concern.

Google's Blogger Content Policy is clear that both posting death threats and as well as hate speech are not allowed

We call on Google to follow the example of Wordpress and stop providing a free platform for Golden Dawn's hate speech and intimidation of journalists by suspending the official Golden Dawn blogs hosted on their platform.

      No decent and civilized person or Nation can hold ideals as the Nazis or Neo-Nazi’s. It is an aberration of anything that we call Human and civilized. No decent and civilized person or Nation can hold ideals as the Nazis or Neo-Nazi’s. It is an aberration of anything that we call Human and civilized. They are wild beats of Darkness that live, breathe, and spread hypocrisy and terror.

      To prevent further spreading of hatred virus among people. The only solution in a the world right now is acceptance and appreciation of "being different", and the fact that the problems are common in all countries. The main enemy is ignorance, not different race or origin
