Nikolaos G. Michaloliakos (Greek: Νικόλαος Γ. Μιχαλολιάκος, Greek pronunciation: [niˈkolaos mixaloˈʎakos]) (born 1957) is the leader of Golden Dawn, a Greek nationalist organisation.[1]


Michaloliakos was born in Athens, in 1957. Ηe completed his studies at the Faculty of Mathematics of the National and Kapodistrian University of Athens.[2]

At the age of 16, he joined the nationalist 4th of August Party of Konstantinos Plevris. He also participated in the Athens local organisation of EOKA-B.[2][3]

He was arrested for the first time in July 1974, during a protest outside the British embassy in Athens, against the stance of the United Kingdom toward the Turkish invasion of Cyprus.[2] He was arrested again for assaulting journalists covering the December 1976 funeral of Evangelos Mallios, a policeman who tortured prisoners during the Regime of the Colonels, assassinated by the Revolutionary Organization 17 November, but was released due to technical issues related to his arrest.[2][3][4][5][6] While he was in prison, Michaloliakos met the leaders of the Greek military junta of 1967-1974.[2][3] After that he joined the Army and became a commando of the special forces.[2][3] He was arrested again in July 1978 after he had become a member of a far-right extremist group, and sentenced to one year imprisonment in January 1979 for illegally carrying guns and explosives.[3][4] He was also dismissed from his position in the army.[2]

After he was released, he launched the Hrisi Avgi (Greek for “Golden Dawn”) magazine. The politics of the magazine were, at least initially, closely aligned with National Socialist beliefs.[3][4] The publication of the magazine ceased in April 1984, when Michaloliakos joined the National Political Union, and took over the leadership of its youth section, after a personal order of Georgios Papadopoulos.[2][3] In January 1985 he broke away from the National Political Union and founded the “Popular National Movement – Hrisi Avgi”. Michaloliakos remained the leader of Hrisi Avgi until its disbandment, in November 2005.[7]

Although Hrisi Avgi remains a party of minor electoral importance, it drew public attention in the 1990s and early 2000.[3][4]

Michaloliakos announced the disbandment of Hrisi Avgi in November 2005, due to clashes with anti-fascists.[7] In 2005-2007 he (like most members of Hrisi Avgi) continued his political activity through the Patriotic Alliance.[3]

Member of the Athens Municipal Council

In the Municipality Elections of the 7th of November 2010, Michaloliakos was elected councilman in the Athens Municipal Council, voted by the 5.3% of the Athenians with the slogan “Let’s make Athens Greek again” (Να ξαναγίνει η Αθήνα ελληνική).

On 17 January 2011, Michaloliakos participated in the Athens Municipal Council accompanied by a number of bodyguards. The president of the Council noticed that the members of the Municipal Council are protected by the municipal police and asked him to participate to the talks without his bodyguards. When some of the members of the Municipal Council, mainly from left parties, accused Michaloliakos of using fascists methods and of promoting fascism, he stood up and saluted using the Nazi salute before leaving the room.[8] This behavior caused the immediate reaction of both the Mayor of Athens and the opposition groups who characterized the salute as a direct insult to democracy.
