From International Business Times, 01.08.2012: Members of Greece's far-right Golden Dawn party have restricted deliveries of free food only to people who could prove they were Greek. Organisers asked for ID cards of dozens of people surrounding a delivery truck in Athens' Syntagma Square for a handout. The unemployed and the people with many children were served first. More than 200 people showed up, according to witnesses. One woman in the queue told the BBC that the initiative made "Golden Dawn much more attractive". 

Another one said she did not vote for Golden Dawn, which saw support jump from 0.46 to 7 percent over three years to gain 21 seats in parliament. Golden Dawn spokesman Ilias Kasidiaris said the food, which included potatoes, pasta, milk and olive oil, came from Greek firms and Greek producers only. The party ignored a local authority ban on allowing the food handout in the square. "Athens mayor Giorgos Kaminis does not mind when illegal immigrants and anarchists use the square," a party member told Ekathimerini website. Political experts pointed out that Golden Dawn was using tactics employed by Hamas and the Muslim Brotherhood to boost support among the population, which is struggling with harsh government austerity measures .
