The once-obscure far-right Golden Dawn, which wants to deport all immigrants, is among the parties that has benefitted most from the mood among voters, and is expected to win its first seats in parliament. Greece's ruling Socialist PASOK and conservative rival New Democracy parties have also pledged to crack down on immigration to try to win over voters. On Sunday, the first 56 immigrants were brought to the Amygdaleza detention camp in western Athens, a police official said. Dozens more are expected at the camp in the next few days, which can house up to 1,000 people, the official said. Amygdaleza is the first of about 50 camps that Greek officials say will be built by mid-2013. It consists of dozens of containers that were originally set up to house people hit by natural disasters such as earthquakes. "We are sending a message in every direction that the country is not unfenced anymore," Civil Protection Minister Mihalis Chrysohoidis said at a rally in Athens.

This is my first official thread as an ATS member. I recently came across this article posted on Reuters and figured what better place to discuss this than here. At first glance this article appeared somewhat innocent and the more reading I did I realized what disturbed me so much about this bit of news..

Isn't this oddly reminiscent of what another European country did when they were ruled by a fanatical dictator and when their country faced an economic crisis? Blame the immigrants? Of course you know who i'm referring to. Hitler & Germany. 50 camps that can house up to 1,000 people each? This seems like a bit of an overreaction to me, and where might are they coming up with the funds to afford such a project if money is so tight? Another thought occurred in that these camps may not only be suited for just immigrants but also any type of civil disobedience caused by regular citizens that they might faced with in the given future, which in my opinion isn't too much a stretch of the imagination given the recent riots, suicides and economic problems their country has been faced with. Am I the only one who think this may be some cause for concern?

I really want to like these guys being a National Socialist. But I wouldnt trust them. They are rumoured to have ties to the Police and are used by the Police to ruin protests. There was a thread on ATS a couple of months ago talking about how they have been hanging out with the Communist Party.

National Socialists that are winning over the worker and have ties to Police and now have ties to camps. Are they following a blueprint? It does seem like it.

National Socialism would be very good if don the right way. Just not the far-right way

Hi LausDeo, nice first thread, welcome to the jungle. Yes Europe is undergoing some radical and quite disturbing changes right now, the economic situation is far worse than we are led to believe but they know that they cannot keep the genie in the bottle for ever.
During economic times of distress the fertile ground for fascism and nationalism are ploughed, The real culprits behind this Euro-geddon will walk away whistling pocketing their billions while the blame is eased onto vulnerable minorities. This is nothing new under the sun and is possibly a pre-planned tactic.
And no it didn't end well the last time either.

(hangs head and walks away sighing)

And they will use them. Economically Europe is finished. The level of social unrest, hate and intolerance in Europe and worldwide is spiking up dramatically.We are in for an Epic year.

It really saddens me but the fact is we will eventually reach a critical point, and all
these detention camps will be used by our governments in case of mass violent protest.

I see the Greek situation as a kind of "blue print" on what's coming to a town near you.

Great thread dude. And no, you are not the only one who thinks this is a serious concern. All I have to say is...its all happening...

So, um, shouldn't they be using that money to help out the hundreds of thousands of people that are in poverty in that country? Shows where the government's priorities are.

My thoughts exactly. Greece could be the first domino in a long line of economies to start falling. What creeps me out is the name of the of this political party "Golden Dawn" and the well known xenophobic behavior of some far right nationalists in European countries like this. We have a lot of anti-muslim rhetoric in America too but I am imagining a scenario of economic depression, racial tension, terrorist attacks tossing the country and others into chaos. Did you see the pictures of this camp?

Wow, this sounds farmilier. The stuff i read on FEMA esspecialy, that the camps were built to house people after natrual disaters, a good example how it can change in a blink of an eye. And i can garentee, it wont be long before it is used to prison Greeks who oppose the far-right gov.

Europe is starting to scare me. Europe has never had a good history to be honest, esspecialy in the eyes of globalisation, which in turn causes economic troubles (WW1 and WW2 anyone?)

So far we have a rise in far-right politics in Denmark, Greece and France is starting to sway towards national socialism, and at a time were every country (supposidly) needs to join together to pay of a collective debt (EU), it's going to cause nothing but political problems and strain.

I can see in several years, Germany getting major p#### off again. The debt will be left with them because the other socialist countries will turn their backs on the debt, and to be honest i don't blame them, however it will reach a point were Germany will DEMAND their money back (i use the word 'their' loosely), and the socialist countries will just turn around, with a huge army and say nothing more other than "make me".

Germany tried with WW1, failed. Germany tried once again to take over and keep control of Europe in WW2, failed. Now for a third time, using economic tactics, they near enough have full economic control over Europe, and can very well loose it all again in a few years time if Europe has another national socialist trend, and we all know what happens when Germany looses control over Europe...

Maybe a bit of an 'out-there/paranoid' scenario, but Europe has never been this politicaly strained since WW2 and is getting more and more worrying each day, with very little reporting.

Is Greece the proving grounds for the NWO take over plans. I am sure that systems and methods are being tested and refines for "our protection"!

The problem isn't the incompetent and corrupt governments and mega-corps and those that pull their strings.
No, the problem is you. You haven't accepted your place in society (at the bottom), and they know just how to
deal with you. Detention camps.

You're exactly right.

It's all in the terminalogy that they disguise their true purposes. These camps are for "Natural disasters" or these camps are for "Immigrants" and they may be.. for now. It just a more friendly term for people to swallow.

One of many threads on this issue
(search 'Greece' and 'fema')
Why on earth would up to 50 camps be needed just for illegal immigrants? It's hardly as if Greece is the new Eldorado. I'd have thought there would be more people trying to get out....

Seriously dude? I'm not telling Greece how to run their country, i'm only an observer of what's going on. Last time I checked i'm allowed to have an opinion on the matter, especially if it could potentially effect our country in some form or way. If you don't care to have an opinon than why bother commenting on the matter?

New Eldorado, Lol. Love it. Yeah, with all the economic problems going on over there I can't exactly picture people flocking across the border in masses.You would think the opposite would be true? Like recent statistics on less and less Mexicans coming to America. How much faith I place in those studies is limited, but still. Who knows.

I've been thinking about this thread all day. My father was in WW2 in Europe and my family went thru all that. In those days, all started like corrective actions and extreme mesures initially supported by a great number of the people. We know what happened later.

Detention camps are a bad in many levels. All kind of bad things can happen inside a detention camp.

I am against illegal imigration 100%, but the problem starts when companies hire illegals, in order to provide themselves with cheap manpower. These companies abuse of the illegal inmigrants at the same time they deprive the legal citizens of jobs. That damage the economy, illegals usually send their money back to their countries, they don't invest in a house, business or a car.

Greece is the experiment, when they see the results they will tweak, than rinse and repeat...
