Greek MP: Immigrants are Subhuman
Proceedings in the Greek parliament were disrupted Thursday after a far-right deputy and member of a Council of Europe anti-discrimination committee described immigrants as subhumans.
When Eleni Zaroulia of the Golden Dawn party refused to withdraw the remark the speaker called a meeting of senior parliamentarians, who formally condemned the statement.
Zaroulia is one of 18 Golden Dawn deputies elected in elections last June which saw the party receive seven percent of the vote. She attacked immigrants’ rights and demanded special treatment for people of Greek origin returning from places such as Albania and Russia. (via GreekReporter.com)
