Yesterday, after a constituency surgery at the library in Birstall, neer Leeds, Labour MP Jo Cox was subjected to a targeted, brutal and prolonged attack by an assailant who, according to multiple eyewitness accounts, shouted the words “Britain First” as he attacked, shooting and stabbing her multiple times. By the evening, news broke that Jo had died as a result of her injuries. Read the rest of this entry
The far right is a hot topic right now and Chrissi Avgi\Golden Dawn (GD) are increasingly making headlines all over Europe, as this recently small neo-Nazi group suddenly stumbles onto the political stage; rabid and unclean compared to many of its European cousins, punching and threatening and speaking of civil war whilst for a long time no one does anything even though migrants and other undesirables are beaten and killed, and the cops are participating actively or at least not preventing it as the government tries its best to do even better in its own bureaucratic way. The murder of the antifascist Pavlos Fyssas by a GD member has created a sharp u-turn that recently saw surprised members of GD marching on their own as cops busted in on them and the state went antifascist. I have chosen the term ‘far-right’ to act as a massive umbrella term under which fascists, Nazis, xenophobic populists and nationalists can be categorised. I know that this is a simplification, but simplification is necessary if one is to talk about a new political climate which is spreading over Europe, a climate which is created by many groups with differing backgrounds and ideologies but which most significantly is characterised by racism and cultural protectionism. When analysing Golden Dawn it is relevant to look at Greek history as well as the ideologies of fascism and national socialism, but the international context is also important. If we look at international connections between GD and other far right groups, we can narrow our definitions, because we find the solidarity coming from a very specific political grouping: the neo-Nazis.

GREECE/SYRIA: The Greek Nationalist Socialists that are fighting alongside Asaad’s regime are far more dangerous than Golden Dawn

Maybe the name Carmen Martín Padial says you something. He held the second place on the list of Lleidas Hartos.org during the last Catalan elections. A vegetarian and an animalist, you may have noticed his unconventional speech.
Maybe you have also heard about collecting of food and toys for the most poor which are usually organized by the Igualada group. A good initiative in times of crisis, right?
What they do not say is that only the “Spaniards” can benefit from collected items. Read the rest of this entry

On December 1, 2012 nationalist and fascist organizations in Romania and Moldova: “Civil Action Platform 2012” “” New Right “,” Legionnaires “,” Iron Guard “,” National Liberal Party of Moldova hold a “March of Union” in Alba Iulia (Romania) and Chisinau (Moldova).
Warsaw – The past days following the Nationalist riots of November 11, 2012 have been a time of solemn reflection for those of us in Poland and our friends watching around the world. We have awoken to a new reality, not in a hyperbolic or theoretical sense, but to a practical new reality of fascist terror on the streets of our cities, escalating exponentially. With burned out apartments, hospitalized anti-fascists, murders, mass nationalist marches through our cities, and now the formation of nationalist militias, and a call to overthrow the republic, we’re asking ourselves, just as our grandparents asked 80 years ago, ‘how could this be happening in our times?’ Read the rest of this entry

Over 30,000 joined Independence March on 11 November in Warsaw organised by far-right organisations

On 11 November, Independence Day, one of the largest demonstrations in recent years took place in Poland. Over 30,000 joined the Independence March in Warsaw organised by far-right organisations – ONR (National Radical Camp) and Młodzież Wszechpolska (All-Polish Youth). During the rally, the organisers launched a new unified nationalist organisation, the National Movement, with the declared aim of abolishing the republic. “We will build a force that the leftists and queers fear so much”, threatened Robert Winnicki, leader of the All-Polish Youth. The immediate plans of the National Movement include building and training it’s own paramilitary organisation. Although the organisers claim to be patriots rather than fascists, representatives of the Hungarian neo-fascist Jobbik and other far-right European organisations were present on the march. Both ONR and the All-Poland Youth are well-known for their anti-semitism and racism. Read the rest of this entry
