1. A Greek neo-nazi group known as "Chryssi Avgi" (Golden Dawn) protests against the Rainbow Congress to be held the following week. The level of xenophobia is so great in Greece that even a meeting by members of the Macedonian minority is not tolerated.
2. Greek extremists protest against a meeting to be held the following week by an ethnic Macedonian political party in the town of Edessa (Voden). Their intention (which proved successful) was to intimidate members of this group and prevent the meeting from taking place. The Banner proclaims that "Macedonia is Greece" and aims to deny the distinct ethno-national identity of Greece's Macedonian minority.
3. Greek extremists denigrate members of Greece's Macedonian minority using ethnic slurs on their banner. Despite numerous appeals for assistance Greek officials refused to ensure the safety of the Rainbow Congress and the meeting had to be cancelled.
4. and 5. Greek extremists from the "Hellenic Front" march against a meeting to be held the following week by an ethnic Macedonian political party in the town of Edessa (Voden). The Banner proclaims that "Macedonians can only be Greek" and aims to deny the distinct ethno-national identity of Greece's Macedonian minority.
