To the Prime Minister of Greece
Dear Mr. Karamanlis,
In the name of the European Free Alliance in the European Parliament
we would like to voice our concerns regarding the security measures
to be taken in the context of the first Congress of the Rainbow-Vinozhito
party to be held in Thessaloniki (Solun) on May 30.
Rainbow-Vinozhito is a full member of our European political party
and our representative, Mr. Miquel Mayol I Raynal, member of the European
Parliament, will be attending the congress on our behalf in Thessaloniki
Last November the Rainbow-Vinozhito congress, which was to be held
in Edessa (Voden), had to be cancelled twice due to intimidation
from Greek Neo-Nazi and ultra
right extremist groups such as
Golden Dawn and Greek
Patriotic Front - Elliniko Patriotioko Metopo.
Given your long and distinguished democratic background, we would like
to urge you to take all necessary security measures for the congress
and ensure the security of all the participants and international guests.
We look forward to hearing from you in the near future.
Member of the European Parliament
President, European Free Alliance
Vice-president Greens/European Free Alliance group in the EP
