Fascisme, racisme og nynazisme i dagens Danmark

Af Bodil Enoch

Skræmmende, at det nu er kommet dertil, at vi ser de ultra-højreradikale demonstrere i Københavns gader.

Den 10. maj 2014 forsøgte en fascistisk nynazistisk gruppering, Danmarks Nationale Front, at gennemføre en demonstration i det centrale København under mottoet: ”Ingen moskeer i København”. Da det blev kendt, at de havde fået tilladelse til at gennemføre demonstrationen – først på Rådhuspladsen, men senere ændret til Christiansborgs slotsplads – gik en række antifascistiske organisationer i gang med at søge om tilladelse til moddemonstrationer. Dette blev afvist af politiet. Det endte med, at Racismefri By fik tilladelse til at holde demonstration på Axeltorv på betingelse af, at den var forbi inden nazisternes møde på Christiansborg. Det viste sig, at nazisterne ikke kunne mønstre mere end knap 40 deltagere, men politiet var mødt talstærkt op med betjente, hunde og skovvogne. Politiet greb hårdhændet ind over for de demonstranter, som forsøgte at forhindre nazisternes møde. Der blev uddelt knippelslag i stor stil, og alle blev anholdt, uden sigtelse, men frigivet efter registrering, på nær 10-15 fra DNF, som blev fængslet. Mens DNF forsøgte at holde slotspladsen, dukkede to andre fascistiske grupper op, uanmeldt: Right Wings fra Kalundborgegnen og Danish Defence League, på henholdsvis Højbro Plads og ved Holmens Kirke. Det var dog ikke nok til at få overtaget, og deres fremstød blev hurtigt stoppet. Senere på dagen blev den ene grupperings medlemmer arresteret efter at have raseret en togvogn på vej hjem – flere af dem for ulovlig våbenbesiddelse.

Det er skræmmende, at det nu er kommet dertil, at vi ser de ultra-højreradikale demonstrere i Københavns gader. DNF arrangerede i 2012 en stor demonstration i Århus, men der var der også stor opbakning til moddemonstrationen fra hele landet. Det er på tide, at danskerne vågner af dvalen og får øjnene op for den fare, højredrejningen udgør ikke kun i Danmark, men også i resten af Europa, og især i Østeuropa ser man samme tendens. Det ligner i utrolig grad situationen i trediverne, hvor fascisme og nazisme voksede frem med utrolig hast og kraft, og vi kender alle resultatet. Hitler, Mussolini og Franco fik magt, som de havde agt, og 2. verdenskrigs rædsler sætter stadig dybe spor i Europas historie og i vores hverdag. Det siges, at den, der ikke kender historien, er tvunget til at genopleve den, så nu er det vigtigt, at vi husker historien og får øjnene op for de farer, der lurer, og som før vi ved af det kan bringe os ud i en situation, hvor vi med livet som indsats skal bekæmpe racisme, fascisme og nazisme igen. Solidariteten skal genskabes for at modvirke den stadig større ulighed i samfundet, og oplysning om højredrejningens farer skal spredes til alle grupper. Det er vigtigt, at ikke mindst de unge, som ikke har historien på rygraden, bliver aktive i den kamp.

Parolen er ”Ingen nazister i vore gader” og “Antifascisme er selvforsvar”. Det er ikke en politik, men en sund, menneskeværdig og humanistisk indstilling.

Oversigt over aktive grupper på den yderste højrefløj i Danmark:

Danmarks Nationale Front (DNF)

DNF blev startet i 2007 i kølvandet på lukningen af netværket Dansk Front og blev det nye samlingspunkt for aktivister i Nordsjælland og københavnsområdet. Gruppens primære aktiviteter består af klistermærkeopsætning, uddeling af løbesedler og afholdelse af sociale arrangementer. DNF deltager desuden ved demonstrationer arrangeret af den yderste højrefløj, og personer fra gruppen har stået bag angreb på venstreorienterede demonstrationer og enkeltpersoner. DNF arrangerer 10. maj 2014 en demonstration mod moskéer på Christiansborg Slotsplads. Dette bliver den første anmeldte demonstration af en nazistisk organisation siden 2. verdenskrig.

Danskernes Parti (DP)

DP blev stiftet i 2011 af en udbryder-fraktion fra Danmarks Nationalsocialistiske Bevægelse (DNSB) med den unge nazist Daniel Carlsen i spidsen. Partiet har uden det store held forsøgt at slippe fri af sin nazistiske fortid, men det er alligevel lykkedes dem at få en del opmærksomhed og taletid i medierne. I efteråret 2013 stillede partiet op til kommunalvalget i fire regioner og seks byråd, uden dog at komme ind nogen af stederne.

Danish Defence League (DDL)

DDL har eksisteret siden 2010 og er dannet efter det engelske forbillede, English Defence League. DDL er en antimuslimsk gadebevægelse, som i 2012 stod bag den counter-jihad- demonstration i Aarhus, som samlede antimuslimer fra hele Europa og formentlig er den største af sin slags på den yderste højrefløj siden 2. verdenskrig.

Rightwings

Rightwings er en forholdsvis ny højrefløjgsgruppe fra Kalundborgområdet, som samler en flok unge mænd med fælles interesse for kampsport. Gruppen har bl.a. deltaget i demonstrationer planlagt af DDL og SIAD og i sociale arrangementer arrangeret for grupperinger på den yderste højrefløj.

Ultra White Pride

Ultra White Pride, i daglig tale White Pride eller WP, er en racistisk hooligan-gruppe fra Aarhus, som støtter fodboldklubben AGF. Gruppen har eksisteret siden 1994 og er kendt for sine angreb og overfald på byens venstrefløj, indvandrere og andre minoriteter.


Mindedemonstration for Rosa Luxemburg og Karl Liebknecht

Den årlige fredsdemonstration i Berlin til socialisternes kirkegård i Friedrichsfelde fandt sted 12. januar.

I den store demonstration var der deltagere fra socialistiske bevægelser, fagbevægelsen og fredsgrupper samt fra de kommunistiske partier. Ud over Tysklands kommunistiske parti var bl.a. Tyrkiets kommunistiske parti og det græske og svenske kommunistparti repræsenteret.

Røde nelliker blev traditionen tro lagt ved mindesmærkerne i respekt for socialister og frihedskæmpere – og ved mindestenen for Rosa og Karl.

2014 er hundredåret for starten på 1. verdenskrig. Karl Liebknecht stemte som den eneste imod krigsbevillingerne i den tyske Rigsdag.

I 1914 fastslog Rosa Luxemburg, at de herskende klasser var årsag til at det drev mod katastrofe.

Tyskland var et klassisk eksempel i den forbindelse. Rosa Luxemburg og Karl Liebknecht blev få år efter myrdet af reaktionen for deres overbevisning og kamp mod krig.

25 år senere startede 2. verdenskrig, da det nazistiske Hitler-Tyskland overfaldt Polen i september 1939 – og et folkemord startede.

Vi har heller ikke brug for katastrofer i dag, skriver det tyske kommunistparti i deres avis Unsere Zeit på demonstrationsdagen:

Vi har

  • ikke brug for militærinterventioner i Syrien, Mali, Iran – ingen steder.
  • ikke brug for soldater i Afghanistan eller andre steder.
  • ikke brug for dronemord og våbensalg.
  • ikke brug for spioner gennem NSA og andre hemmelige tjenester.
  • ikke brug for Nazis og deres i krisetider særligt farlige sociale demagogi.
  • ikke brug for racisme, antisemitisme og antimuslimsk propaganda.
  • ikke brug for en stadig voksende social nedbrydning og den deraf følgende nedværdigelse af millioner af mennesker.
  • ikke brug for beskyttelse af bankerne.

Vi demonstrerer fredeligt mod krige, for menneskelighed og internationalisme – for en solidarisk fredelig og socialt retfærdig verden.

Rapport fra Sofia

Bodil Enoch

Formand for Horserød-Stutthof foreningen

Bodil    FIR

FIR International – paraplyorganisationen for fangeforeninger i Europa – afholdt sin 16. kongres i dagene 5. og 6. oktober 2013 i Bulgariens hovedstad Sofia. Lørdagen var helliget kongressen, og søndag formiddag var der rundtur i Sofia med besøg ved Dimitrovs grav og ved det hus, han boede i som barn.

At kongressen blev afholdt i Sofia, er lidt af en bedrift for de lokale antifascister, idet deres veteranorganisations medlemmer ikke anerkendes som frihedskæmpere mod nazismen under 2. verdenskrig. Bulgarien var dengang medlem af aksemagterne og samarbejdede med tyskerne, ligesom landet i øvrigt også gjorde under 1. verdenskrig. Bulgarien blev befriet af den røde hær 9. september 1944. Det afholder dem dog ikke fra at stable en flot og meget velbesøgt kongres på benene. Lørdag åbnede kongressen med deltagelse af ca. 100 lokale veteraner, den ældste var lige fyldt 103 år, og der blev uddelt både blomster og medaljer til præsidiet.

De 45 delegerede repræsenterede mere end 20 europæiske lande inklusive Israel, og det gennemgående tema var – ikke overraskende – højredrejningen i Europa. Især Østeuropa, de baltiske stater og landene på Balkan er hårdt ramt. Problemerne med nynazisme og fascisme kender vi mest fra Grækenland, men nok så interessant er, at i lande, som ligger meget tættere på, nemlig Estland, Letland og Litauen, findes en stærk bevægelse, som stadig hylder nazismen, og som bruger enhver lejlighed til at vise sig frem med afholdelse af marcher og fejring af diverse mærkedage fra 2. verdenskrigs tyske overherredømme.

FIR’s arbejde er i stigende grad præget af den politiske udvikling. Den økonomiske krise har samme virkning i dagens Europa som i 30’erne og danner sammen med den umiskendelige historieforfalskning grundlaget for fascismen, som vi ser blomstre fra Norge i nord til Israel i syd og fra Rusland i øst til Holland i vest. Den alvorlige situation kom også til udtryk i de mange resolutioner, som blev debatteret og vedtaget på kongressen, og her skal nævnes de vigtigste. Det blev vedtaget at opfordre det bulgarske parlament til at godkende veteraner fra modstandskampen under 2. verdenskrig som frihedskæmpere. FIR opfordrer ligeledes Ungarns regering til at finde – og retsforfølge – de nynazister (Jobbik’s), som for mere end et år siden ved et offentligt møde i Budapest overfaldt FIR’s præsident Wilmos Hanti (ungarer), så han måtte indlægges i en måned på hospitalet. Der er intet gjort i sagen. FIR opfordrer alle antifascistiske organisationer til at møde op i Riga i Letland den 16. marts 2014 og den 26. juli 2014 i Vaivara i Estland, hvor SS-veteraner fra flere europæiske lande og nyfascister mødes. Der er brug for massiv opbakning af de lokale aktivister. FIR-DK vil oplyse yderligere om arrangementerne senere.

De baltiske lande betragter SS-soldaterne som ”almindelige soldater” eller ”frihedskæmpere” og bruger SS-historien til at retfærdiggøre deres nationale identitet, minimere betydningen af den røde hærs indsats i krigen og chikanere de russiske mindretal i landene.

Den græske delegation opfordrede til at fordømme partiet ”Gyldent daggry”, hvis meritter vi ikke er uvidende om i kraft af de historier, der når ud til medierne. FIR opfordrer den græske regering til at forbyde organisationen, ligesom EU og dets institutioner opfordres til at standse de økonomiske sanktioner mod den græske befolkning og befolkninger i andre sydeuropæiske lande, idet disse sanktioner er med til at understøtte højredrejningen i mange europæiske lande. Grækerne venter i øvrigt stadig på tilbagebetaling af de ”krigslån”, tyskerne fik i tiden op til 2. verdenskrig. Tyskerne synes ikke, de skal betales tilbage, idet Grækenland jo samarbejdede med Tyskland. Egentlig burde Grækenland snarere betale Tyskland erstatning for den græske modstandsbevægelses sabotager m.v. under krigen. Grotesk, men vi har før set, at Tyskland har meget svært ved at komme til lommerne, når det gælder krigserstatninger. Lånene ville i dagens mønt svare til 2,7 mia. euro.

Vi nærmer os 70-året for afslutningen på 2. verdenskrig, som markeres den 8. maj 2015. De russiske veteraner har tilbudt FIR International at være værter for fejringen. For at oplyse medlemslandenes befolkninger om krigen, nazismen og fascismen startede et ”fakkeltog” i Sofia. FIR-faklen skal gå på omgang fra land til land, og de lokale organisationer påtager sig at gøre alt for at viderebringe FIR’s motto: FIR’s Fakkel – mod 70-års dagen for sejren – ambassadører for fred.

Lad os sige NEJ til nutidens nyfascisme! Fascisme er ikke en holdning, men en forbrydelse mod menneskeheden.


 

Resolutions of the WPC on the unexploded ordnances (UXOs) still kill people in Laos

Parallel with the Vietnam War, the USA waged an undeclared war in Laos in the 1960s and 1970s. They dropped three million tons of bombs on the Lao territory. At that time, the population of Laos was three million that makes Laos the most heavily bombed country, per capita, in history. Based on two airfields in Thailand, fleets of B-52s take off daily for bombing missions on Laos. They thus conducted some 580 000 missions over Laos. On their way back after accomplishing their missions, as they are not allowed to land with bombs on board, they just drop remaining bombs at random on Lao territory. But 30% of the cluster munitions, locally called “bombers” failed to detonate, so out of the 270million “bombers” dropped onto Laos, 80 million unexploded ordnances remain in Laos after the war.

Over 50,000 people have been killed or injured as a result of UXO accidents in the period between 1964 and 2008.  Specialists say it would need centuries to rid Laos of UXOs. The World Peace Council expresses solidarity with and support to the victims of unexploded ordnances in Laos, demanding the compensation and assumption of responsibility from US side.

RESOLUTION OF THE WPC FOR ESTABLISHMENT OF A NUCLEARFREE ZONE IN THE MIDDLE EAST

Whereas the international Nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty (NPT) calls for both liquidation of their nuclear weapons by nuclear states and discouraging of non-nuclear states from obtaining or developing nuclear weapons;

Whereas, the United Nations General Assembly has called for the convening of a Conference in Helsinki, Finland in December, 2012 for the establishment of a Nuclear-Free Zone in the Middle East; and further

Whereas other regions of the world, including Latin America and Africa, have already been recognized as Nuclear-Free Zones; and further

Whereas the reported military build-up in the region by the United States is only increasing tensions in the Middle East, thus threatening peace and security of all nations in the region and the world; and further

Whereas, the establishment of a Middle East Nuclear Free Zone, under the supervision of the International Atomic Energy Agency, would eliminate processing, refining, manufacturing and

possession of ALL nuclear weapons in the Middle East;

Therefore, the Assembly of the World Peace Council demands the abolition of all Nuclear weapons deployed in the Middle East and its recognition as Nuclear Free Zone along with our opposition to the imperialist war plans in the region whether through conventional or nuclear weapons arsenal, which are deployed on land or on war ships and planes.

Resolution on solidarity with the victims of Agent Orange in Vietnam

Katmandu, Nepal, July 22, 2012

Considering the Resolution passed in on October 24, 2009 by the Executive Committee of the World Peace Council, declaring the 10th August as the day of solidarity with the Vietnamese victims of Agent Orange/dioxin and calling upon all World Peace Council members and the entire world peace movement to undertake initiatives in support of their struggle for justice;

Recalling the strong appeal and commitment of the Second International Conference of Victims of Agent Orange held in Hanoi on August 8-9,/2012, and signed by the World Peace Council President, to build greater solidarity and intensify international efforts to support victims of Agent Orange in Vietnam;

Recognizing that the victims of Agent Orange in Vietnam are still subject to injustice as a result of the actions of those perpetrators who still remain outside the law and still have taken very little action to fulfill their responsibility to their victims;

Feeling great urgency to act immediately because many Agent Orange victims suffer daily torment and pain and their lifetimes are coming to an end;

Emphasizing that international public opinion for the rights of victims of Agent Orange to life and peace, especially that of the various human rights organizations and of the United Nations, has yet to be fully and effectively realized;

Now, therefore, the World Peace Council Congress hereby declares:

1.That all of humanity, all governments, organizations and individuals, whatever their social or political position, should take immediate, resolute and concrete action to support all victims of Agent Orange, particularly Vietnamese Agent Orange victims. In every country and region, those who believe in peace and justice should organize and develop specific programs for mobilizing material resources to help the victims and raise their voices in every way possible in support of the struggle of Vietnamese Agent Orange victims for justice.

2. That the responsibility of the United States government and chemical companies in solving the Agent Orange problem in Vietnam remains unfulfilled and that all of humanity must call upon those responsible for the suffering of the victims of Agent Orange to take responsibility and compensate their victims.

3. That we pledge to organize and activate members of the World Peace Council to implement the 2009 resolution of the Executive Committee in making August 10th a united and annual focus for concerted and ongoing activity to support the victims of Agent Orange in Vietnam, working together with all organizations and individuals to build a strong international movement which can finally, 51 years after the first use of Agent Orange in Vietnam, win justice for those who have suffered so much!

 

WPC Assembly resolution on Syria

After considering the developments of the situation in Syria, the WPC Assembly convened in Kathmandu/ Nepal 20 – 22 July 2012, reaffirms its strong solidarity with the Syrian people in confronting the harsh imperialist attack that is aiming at changing the geostrategic map of the region in order to speed its hegemony on it.

We express our support to the just and genuine demands of the Syrian people in enhancing democracy and social and economic changes in a way that serve their interests within the framework of its territorial integrity and sovereignty. At the same time, the WPC Assembly condemns in the strongest terms this imperialist interference taking place in all forms and by all means, and calls upon all anti-imperialist, progressive and peace loving forces to work on:

Confronting and disclosing the continuous misleading media campaign which is being organized by the imperialist media empires to distort and reverse the facts in Syria.

  • Escalating the pressure on the EU and US imperialist governments and their allies from the reactionary regimes in the region in order to stop weapon supplying, financial funding of their proxy the so called ´´Free Syrian Army´´ and other mercenary groups which are carrying out terrorist acts in Syria.
  • Working on lifting and abolishing all kinds of unjust economic sanctions imposed by the imperialist states and reactionary Arab and Turkish regimes against the Syrian people.
  • Increase the struggle in order to confront the political imperialist pressures that are exerted on Syria inside the international institutions and organizations, and work on supporting the comprehensive national dialogue among Syrians themselves to come out of this crisis and become the masters of their future.
