Golden Dawn Christmas Video Taken Down by YouTube

Greece's Golden Dawn (Chrysi Avgi) has posted a Christmas video they describe as "A beautiful, romantic and nostalgic video with pictures of old Athens we lost. The old Greek Athens as opposed to modern decline."

The ultra-nationalist party posted the video, wishing "Merry Christmas" to all Greeks, on their website.

The party has spent the run up to Christmas denoting food and clothing to needy Greeks, with members of parliament using their parliamentary salaries to assist fellow Greeks. Donations have been disrupted by left-wing groups opposed to the party using public places to stage their distributions.

The video is no longer available, though. YouTube say they took it down because it infringed their policy related to speech that incites hatred. Apparently remembering how our countries used to be now constitutes incitement to hatred.

Here is the video on GreekTube:
