Protest the Nazis! - 11:30am, Congress Park near Faneuil Hall
06 May 2005
Stop the Nazis!

Urgent! Protest the Nazis at Congress Park (space in front of Faneuil Hall) on Sunday, May 8th at 11:30a.m.
Directions: Take the T to Government Center (Blue and Green Lines) walk past City Hall to Fanuil Hall.
Sponsored by: Stop the Nazi's Now Coalition

Neo-Nazi's are planning to march in Boston. Billy Roper, head of the neo-NAZI group "White Revolution" has announced plans to lead a protest of a Holocaust Memorial service to be conducted at Faneuil Hall on May 8th. Roper and his fascist scum deny that the Holocaust ever took place. This is vicious anti-semitism! We can't let them get away with this!

Recently, neo-Nazi's from the National Alliance have been putting up disgusting flyers announcing their presence. This rally is a clear attempt at a more public posture by the fascists. They must be stopped!

In the past week there has been an increase in hate crimes. Violent attacks took place against a gay student at Harvard University and an Arab student was beaten unconscious at Tufts University where spraypainted swastikas also appeared. Historically, neo-nazi marches and rallies have always been preceeded by a rise in hate crimes, and, when unchallenged, there have been hate crimes in the wake of the rallies themselves. The Nazis Must Be Stopped!

The right wing has become confident in recent months, and this in turn has emboldened the far-right. The "Minutemen" were allowed to roam the Arizona borderland unopposed in their vigilante and racist hunt of Latinos suspected of being undocumented immigrants last month, leading to several episodes of human rights violations. In Boston, violence against gays and lesbians was up 30% last year. History has shown that if fascists are unopposed, they can gain a foothold and recruit others to their views. This in turn allows the "official" right wing to push forward their agenda (think: Death Penalty in Massachusetts, an end to gay marriage, etc.) and makes far right fascist politics even more accessible. We can stop this cycle by coming out in large numbers to demonstrate to the NAZIs that they are not welcome in our city and that they will not recruit a base of support here! This is exactly what was done by hundreds of activists when the NAZIs last came to town in 1994. They were run out of town and haven't been back for eleven years. We have to show them that they are still unwelcome in Boston!

Re: PROTEST THE NAZIS! - 11:30 A.M., CONGRESS PARK near FANEUIL HALL

How many people have been murdered by the Communist ideologies some of these groups represent? Six million? More?
Just a question:

"History has shown that if fascists are unopposed, they can gain a foothold and recruit others to their views."

If No Nazis Now Believes this, why aren't they protesting the zionists as well... not to mention the police.

because you just don't protest a holocaust memorial.

zionist does not equal jewish, damn it.

Just incase Bob is actually willoing to see some Jews from Israel that oppose the actions of the Israeli state

https://israel.indymedia.org/newswire/display/3086/index.php

though I doubt that's really an issue that interests him, like wise "Stalinist" is about equivelent to "Nazi" in the circles I run in.

Yeh, Stallin killed more people than Hitler. Haven't seen anyone stick up for him lately

Let me see if I have the arguments straight:

- Don't protest the Nazi's because socialists - who've always fought against injustice in society, INCLUDING fighting against Stalinism - are involved. Brilliant. The nazi's may be united, but our side can be a shabby outfit of nay-sayers. Very effective.

- Don't protest the Nazi's because they're protesting a Holocaust Memorial Service where 6 million Jews along with 6 million anarchists, socialists, romani and others who fought the nazi's were murdered.

This is the height of sectarianism and is a recipe for doing NOTHING. We need to be united against these nazi thugs! Which side are you on?

I'm perfectly happy to be associated with NEITHER side of this conflict.
Re: Who's side are you on

Well I think that's pretty clear...anyone spreading dissent in this thread is likely with the WR folks, even if they come up with seemingly valid points, and especially if they suggest counter protest arrangements have changed.

Insiring in fighting in your opponets is a very effective weapon the gov't and other have been using forever. It's particularly effective against strongly opinionated individualists who are critical of authority.

If you're against the White Revolution and their Nazi friends protest them, simple, everything else is a distraction here.

If you're confused by all the misinformation about pre-meeting times, just go to the event at the holocaust memorial, that's their primary target and a publicly scheduled event who's timing isn't subject to change.
Unite Against Fascism
06 May 2005
the protest on sunday against the nazis is a call to anyone who opposes fascism and the racist, homophobic, anti-worker, anti-immigrant, anti-semetic, garbage that they carry.

one's position on the state of israel really has nothing to do with this counter-protest -- it's against the nazis showing their ugly heads in boston. period.

we should unite in the face of this threat -- a threat that seeks the mutual destruction of communists, socialists, anarchists, trade unionists, and other progressive and left groups.

everyone should come -- 11:30am, Congress Park!

Join the Stop the Nazis Now coalition in telling these thugs they are not welcome here!
Do's and Don'ts of Antifascism
06 May 2005
Here's a better recap:

1) Don'y ally with Communists (notice the big C, and socialists is such a vague term anyways) against Nazis, since both support and look up to equally atrocious regimes. Simply because they are anti-nazi doesn't make them allies.
2) Don't ally with zionists, they are racist and militaristic supporters of occuption. When they say that they are against racism, they are only against people who disaprove of israel.
3) Don't ally with zionists or other such groups that work with the FBI. This is a no brainer. They have, are, and will continue to turn against you. Don't think that their hate of nazis overides their hate of anti-zionists and anarchists.
4) DO protest the holocaust day, which not only, only commemorates dead jews, but denies the existence of murdered queers, socialists, gypsies, serbs, slavs, handicapped... etc.
5) DO protest the holocaust day which, according to JCRC's website is a fundraiser for pro-israel commercials.
6) Read up on Musselini; seek out defenitions of fascim other than simply rascist or "right-wing".
7) Read up on the history of antifascism and how it as a negation has been used by other totalitarians and authoritarians (CP, "the allies") to undermine and control radical groupings under the guise of a "united front".

PS: PeteS, fuck you for deleting this post. I'm niether an antifa nor a nazi, just a regular reader of this site who thinks that allying with zionists to fight racism is stupid. And single issues, anyone who is anti, movements are self defeating. Next time we protest israel are we going to invite the nazis to come? No... so why invite the zionists to protest the nazis now.

the "white revolution" website makes fun of Boston IndyMedia. yet they're willing to "stoop" to our level and troll along on our forums?

irony?

as a close friend pointed out to me earlier today - the best thing about bigoted folks is that eventually they get theirs.

their daughter falls in love with an "other"
their wife/husband leaves them for an "other"
their family tree has an unknown "other" that they try to hide from themselves and their hate-filled friends
their hate crimes against the "other" land em em jail where the "other" gets to show em real justice and equality.
and my personal favorite, they die after living petty little hate-filled lives... and meet the wonderfully diverse and loving "others" who guard the gates of heaven, and who will welcome the bigots with open arms only if they learn and accept the error of their ways.
