Showdown

nazi punks fuck off

 

10 November 1938 – Kristallnacht – the first big pogrom in Nazi Germany

10 November 2007 – right-wing idiot wannabe Nazi extremists attempt to march through the Jewish quarter of Prague

I always think it’s too bad they are too stupid to see the irony. Czechs are Slavs. They may be more Germanic than other Slavs, but to a real Nazi, I am sure that one Slav is as untermensch as any other. The Nazis’ ultimate plan for the Slavs was to use them as slave labour until they all died. Did these cretins not learn any history in school?

It started with the Czech neo-Nazis. Now it seems that some of their Slovak and German brethren will be coming to Prague to support them. I can understand the Slovak Nazis wanting to help –they are, after all, only making the exact same ignorant untermensch mistake. But the German neo-Nazis? In their case it is not irony. Their actions are practically apostate. Or is it okay for a Nazi to align with one group of untermenschen against another group that are even more untermenschen? I am afraid I am not up on the etiquette of being a proper Nazi.

Anyway- this is what’s going on: The Young National Democrats and their fellow right-wing extremists are planning to gather between 15.00 and 16.00 in Břehová street. For those of you who don’t know, that puts them in the heart of the Jewish quarter, literally a stone’s throw from the 13th century Old-New Synagogue.

This is in spite of City Hall banning the extremists from marching and the Municipal Court of Prague finally upholding the ban. Never mind, we can’t expect pathetic wannabe Nazis to be law-abiding.

The counter-actions are scheduled as follows:

14.00 – The Jewish Community of Prague are meeting by the Old-New Synagogue and the Jewish Town Hall

15.00 – The Jewish Liberal Union are gathering on Old Town Square

17.00 – Tolerance and Civic Society are gathering on the corner of Břehová and Maiselova

Many other organisations, as well as individuals, are coming out to support the actions against extremism and Nazism. 1400 police will be on hand to protect people and property.

Come out and lend your support too.

    As it’s around 17:00 here, I’m hoping everyone was safe. I haven’t seen any English-language media attention yet, but my eyes are out. Let us know how it went, ok?

    Sorry for the radio silence, I have a friend over from London this weekend so I have not been online. Check the European Jewish Press for the story in English: http://www.ejpress.org/article/21604.

    What I saw: 14 pathetic fascists standing outside the law faculty across the street from a few hundred anti-fascists staring them down. There were 100s more anti-fascists milling around the Jewish quarter and participating in their own action on Old Town Square. Regular beat cops and cops in riot gear everywhere – also water cannon, armed vehicles, etc – they were ready for anything, basically.

    Some anarchists taunted the fascists, but there were just too few of them to really do anything. The stand-off by the law faculty went on for at least a couple of hours. Some anarchists marched, carrying signs with anti-fascist slogans.

    I think the little trouble that there was started after dark. We could feel the tension in the air and decided it was time for us to go. It was after that that there were fights and some of the fascists were discovered carrying batons and Molotov cocktails.

    But overall the fascists were powerless and it was proved that the Czechs will not tolerate them, which was perfect. And most of the people who went out to show the fascists that their ideas are not acceptable were not Jewish or anarchist or part of any movement at all. They were normal ordinary people who felt the need to demonstrate that fascism is not okay. It was a good day.

    I’ve just been reading Czech news on the ČTK website.

    The police arrested about 300 people in the end, both right-wing and left-wing extremists (fascists and anarchists). They kept 3 busloads of right-wing extremists out of Prague, and arrested many people out in the suburbs before they could get into the centre. Some of those arrested were armed. The police are calling yesterday’s operation their biggest security action of 2007. Which makes sense, because not much like this happens in Prague.
