Sun, Souvlaki, Neo-Nazis and Refugees.  National identity & Greece?

Anti-migrant violence is on the rise in Greece; refugee boats attacked, and an innocent child left to die by the inactions of two Governments. With controversial laws being passed that impact the livelihoods of thousands of South Asians in the country and a sharp rise in the Neo-Nazi movement, questions on how we define a nation start to emerge.

This week I am joined by activist Petros Constantinou as he lays bare the disturbing facts impacting Greece, the fate of immigrant communities and the wider issues facing Europe.

About Petros Constantinou

Petros Constantinou is the coordinator for KEEFRA.

KEEFRA has supported thousands of refugees living in Greek camps and campaign against racism and neo-Nazis in Greece. The fascist party ‘Golden Dawn’ managed to gain seats in the Greek Parliament and KEEFRA was able to mobilise the Greek people to protest this and their actions. They also managed to bring a successful lawsuit against the Golden Dawn party which has now closed down. Their major focus now is on supporting the refugees in Greece who are living in terrible conditions.

About the Global Indian Series:

My name is Rajan Nazran Chief Explorer for the Global Indian Series, the official platform for people of Indian origin (PIO) and liberal minds, because let’s face it, we are everywhere!

For over 15 years I have travelled across the globe deep diving into 60+ countries whilst exploring the kaleidoscope of our remarkable 50 shades of brown community.

Voyaging to the edges of the Amazon, facing Ebola in West Africa, being held hostage in Eastern Europe, tapping rubber in Malaysia, drinking chai with Heads of State and sharing laughter with local fishermen – I have been there, looking for the ideas that re-shape a nation.

My purpose is simple, to build a living encyclopaedia of the human experience of the community and a safe mooring ground for open discussions, whether you are an NRI, Indian Diaspora, person of Indian origin (PIO) or a fan of South Asian anthropology, join in as we bring people and communities together.

Through our range of award-winning original content (print, podcasts, events and TV) and fascinating discussions, our impactful stories and platforms have spearheaded national and international conversations that have brought people together.  Our work is featured in global brands including The Indian Express through to the CNBC network.

How to get involved:

Support change: A little favour to ask-We believe true freedom is to be able to act without fear or favour and that identity is not a “brand” to be abused, politicized, or reduced for personal gain. As Global Indians, the need to work together is greater now than ever before.  If we want to see real change, we need to create a better society for all, tackle injustice and plunge into the many aspects of what the human experience truly offers.The Global Indian Series has been built to be a platform of integrity, fairness and to remain fiercely independent of political influence. We are the first in the world to connect with every echelon of society with all human voices being treated equally.  We are the first to have travelled physically to locations far and wide, often putting our own lives on the line to bring forward stories that deserve to be told.  Whether it’s through our Podcast that delves into the human experience behind identity, our articles and features that cover key events we need to know, or live based events that tackle topical discussions, we have been there to support a better community and planet.Despite the high costs and time needed to maintain our work, we continue, because we know our work has helped more people understand what is happening within the communities across our planet, why it matters, and how, together, we can demand progress.  We challenge head-on, the silent divisions that have crept into our collective consciousness and how to tackle key issues that often go neglected in mainstream media.How you can help:Please share our work: By collaborating with others who share our values, our combined voices make change, with many more becoming inspired to take meaningful action.Subscribe to the platform:Many from across our community have decided to subscribe to our platform.
