Al-Jazeera Documentary on Nazism in Hungary | Beastrabban\’s Weblog – This is a very serious video from the Arab news agency, Al-Jazeera, looking at the rise of Fascism in Viktor Orban’s Hungary. It concentrates on the paramilitary sports organization, the Highwaymen’s Army, which is affiliated to the Nazi group Force and Determination, talking to some of its members and showing them training and attending rallies and Hungarian heritage events.

Rachel Gamarski/Simone Preissler Iglesias // Brazil’s Bolsonaros Have a Shrine to the NRA – Businessweek – His conservative, and controversial, political profile is largely known in broad brushstrokes at this point. But what are the issues that really matter most to him and his family? A peek inside the congressional office of Eduardo Bolsonaro—the candidate’s son, adviser, and confidant—reveals many of the answers: law and order, gun rights and fighting abortion, all tinged with a big dollop of Trumpism.

Luke Savage // Harry Leslie Smith (1923–2018) – The son of Lillian Dean and Albert Smith, Harry came into the world by way of Barnsley, Yorkshire during the bleak February of 1923. As he recounted more than ninety years later in the 2014 testament Harry’s Last Stand, his was a country of crippling poverty and social murder. With both the Spanish flu and the trenches of the Great War still hanging in recent memory, his family would eventually live through the Great Depression, Hitler’s bombs, and postwar austerity before seeing the tides turn for working people.

This was a Britain before the welfare state or the NHS: one where life for many ordinary people consisted of hunger, low wages, and backbreaking toil in the service of patricians who hoarded the fruits of common labor in their manor houses and shire estates; where class privilege was not only hereditary, but institutionally codified in both culture and politics; and where members of the working poor often died needless deaths amid private affluence and public squalor.

Craig R. McCoy // U.N. speech by Temple prof draws fire from university’s board chair – The furor was triggered primarily by one sentence — the last in the lengthy address. In it, Hill endorsed “a free Palestine from the river to the sea,” a catchphrase of the Palestinian cause that critics associate with its most militant wings.

Critics said Hill was in effect calling for an end to Israel. After CNN dismissed him on Thursday, Hill called the criticism “absurd” and noted that elsewhere in the speech, he supported Israel’s borders, or at least those that existed before it occupied the West Bank and Gaza after the Six-Day War in 1967.

“No part of this is a call to destroy Israel,” Hill wrote on Twitter on Thursday.

He added: “I do not support anti-Semitism, killing Jewish people, or any of the other things attributed to my speech. I have spent my life fighting these things.”

The Lohmeyers stand up to the neo-Nazis in their German village with a rock festival.Birgit and Horst Lohmeyer live in a village mainly inhabited by staunch neo-Nazis. Once a year the couple takes a public stand against the right with a rock festival that attracts such iconic bands as “Die Ärzte”. The tiny village of Jamel in Mecklenburg-Vorpommern can be quite frightening. Almost all of the 40 inhabitants are staunchly right-wing, but Birgit and Horst Lohmeyer are exceptions. They want to do something to counter the rising blood-and-soil ideology. For the past eight years, they’ve been putting together a music festival in their village that takes a stand against the far right. Some local residents have reacted with hostility, and tried to drive the couple out. Their barn was even burned down by an unknown assailant. The Lohmeyers say it’s an oppressive atmosphere, except for a few days each year when bands and fans fill the village. Cult bands like “Die Ärzte”, “Die Toten Hosen” and “Fettes Brot” have already joined the event to stand up for tolerance and openness. The right, however, won’t stand for it. Will things remain peaceful? A report by Mariel Müller._______DW Documentary gives you knowledge beyond the headlines.

Fight4Afrin | de.indymedia.org – Die Verbrechen der Türkei im eigenen Land & außerhalb wie in Syrien (Afrin) & im Nordirak, sind für uns nicht hinnehmbar.

Die Rolle des deutschen Staates, der Waffen liefert & politische Rückendeckung durch Kriminalisierung allen Widerstandes gibt, auch nicht.

Wir haben nur Hass gegen die Kriegstreiber und Profiteure.

Deshalb haben wir am Dienstag 15.5. ein Stück Krieg zurück getragen.

Wir haben 6 nagelneue LKW auf dem Fabrikgelände von MAN abgefackelt. MAN beteiligt sich an Rüstungsproduktion zB zusammen mit Rheinmetall!

Nieder mit dem Faschismus überall!

Kampf dem Kapital & der patriarchalen (Kriegs-)Logik!

Es lebe der Widerstand von PKK bis EZLN!!!

Fight 4 Afrin!

The crimes of Turkey in our own country & outside as in Syria (Afrin) & in Northern Iraq are unacceptable to us.

The role of the German state, which provides weapons & political backing by criminalizing all resistance, also does not.

We only have hatred for the warmongers and profiteers.

That’s why we have 15.5. a piece of war carried back.

We torched 6 brand new trucks on MAN’s factory grounds. MAN participates in armament production eg together with Rheinmetall!

 

Down with fascism everywhere!

Fight Capital & Patriarchal (War) Logic!

Long live resistance from PKK to EZLN !!!

Fight 4 Afrin!
