Golden Dawn, according to Fairfax Media, has been established in Melbourne since 2010 and now plans to open an office and host visits from members of the party active in Greece. Fairfax say that the visits are scheduled for October and name two politicians “who once threatened to raid hospitals and kindergartens and throw immigrants and their children out on the street so that Greeks could take their place”.

Peter Wertheim, the Executive Director of The Executive Council of Australian Jewry, told J-Wire: ““Golden Dawn’s” ideology combining ultra nationalism with racism is repugnant to  Australia’s ethos of egalitarianism and the fair go.  Those who seek to introduce their perverse hatreds  into our peaceful country will not be welcome here”.

The Golden Dawn party was founded in 1985.
