Stop hosting anonymous threats of violence by the Greek Nazi Party


**May 10 Update** A big 'thank you' to those who signed and spread the word. Following our request, Wordpress has suspended the original account, however Golden Dawn has opened a new account at Please keep signing and informing Automattic about this dangerous group.

The Official blog of the Greek Nazi 'Golden Dawn' political party which recently won an unprecedented 7% in the parliamentary elections is hosted on the platform at

In addition to espousing hateful anti-immigrant rhetoric, denial of the Holocaust, and Nazi salutes, Golden Dawn has a history of direct involvement in organized crime and intimidation with many of their top ranking members having been indicted and convicted of violent crimes against immigrants and political opponents.

On April 17 behind the cover of anonymity which they always use on their official blog, they published an article that made thinly veiled threats of violence against Greek reporter Xenia Kounalaki, the editor of the foreign news desk of Kathimerini, Greece’s leading broadsheet.


The Terms of Service state that all content submitted 'does not contain threats or incite violence towards individuals or entities'.


We call on Automattic Inc. to stop providing a free platform for Golden Dawn to anonymously threaten and intimidate reporters, immigrants, and political opponents by shutting down their account.
