ATHENS – “Democracy, freedom and humanism need protection again,” underlined the opposition MeRA25 party in an announced for the 53rd anniversary since the military coup in Greece, which led to a seven-year dictatorship.

“In the name of those that fought against the junta we must stand up to those who are planning a dystopian future for us and the next generations,” said MeRA25.

Concluding, the party announcement pointed out that the forces of the extreme right and bigotry are making significant headway in Greece and throughout Europe, taking advantage of a multi-level crisis and the lack of democracy in decision-making. “Not a single progressive citizen has the right to be complacent and believe that the dark days are firmly in the past,” it concluded.
