Everyday Antisemitism Greece Protests

Greek farmers decry ‘Jewish control of banks’

Protesting farmers displayed an antisemitic banner last month at the entrance of the National Bank of Greece in Chania, the second largest city in Crete.

The farmers hung two banners during the demonstration on 8th February: one that read “The Colonial Bank” and another saying “Rothschilds out of Greece”, implying that the National Bank is controlled by Jewish banking families. Greek media outlets that reported the protest apparently failed to note the banner’s antisemitic nature.
