The Golden Dawn Trial in Greece, the largest trial of Nazis since the Nuremberg trials, has come to an end. In a historic verdict announced on Thursday, the Athens Court of Appeal ruled that 38 of the 50 defendants found guilty will go to jail, among which are 13 former MPs in the Greek parliament.
Among those the court has ruled should go to prison for their participation in Golden Dawn, which has been ruled a criminal organisation in the guise of a political party, are its leader Nikos Michaloliakos, current MEP Yiannis Lagos, and former MPs Ilias Kasidiaris, Christos Pappas, Ilias Panagiotaros, Giorgos Germenis and Artemis Matthaiopoulos, who were all found guilty of running a criminal organisation. Others that will immediately begin serving their prison sentences are Antonis Gregos, Polyvios Zisimopoulos, Panagiotis Iliopoulos, Nikos Kouzilos, Konstantinos Barbarousis and Nikos Michos, sentenced as members of Golden Dawn.
Among those going to jail are Giorgos Roupakias, who was sentenced to life for the murder of musician Pavlos Fyssas, and his 14 accomplices.
KKE: The people’s demand was for the nazis to go to prison – There is no room for complacency
In a statement regarding the historic verdict, the Press Bureau of the CC of the Communist Party of Greece (KKE) pointed out that “the refusal to give suspended sentences for the majority of the condemned nazi criminals of Golden Dawn and particularly for thοse belonging to the leadership group was an self-evident decision”, adding that “the people’s demand was for the nazis to go to prison, even with those reduced sentences due to the changes in the Penal Code”.
“The condemnation of the nazi criminal formation was imperative, however there is no room for complacency. Fascism is the true offspring of this rotten system and its entanglement with sections of the bourgeoisie and capital has been revealed many times in the past, as it was during this trial, and if these have need of Golden Dawn or any other Nazi scheme, they will not hesitate to support it at the expense of the people,” reads the KKE statement.
Once again the EU Parliament proves its role as a leading instrument of anti-communist distortion of history.In a joint resolution signed by the political groups of the People’s Party, the Social Democrats, the Liberals, the Greens and the Conservative Reformists, the EU tries – once again – to equate communism with fascism-nazism and legalize the unacceptable reactionary measures against the Communist Parties and their activity in a number of member-states.Responding to this hideous effort, the group of the Communist Party of Greece (KKE) in the EU Parliament sent a letter to the Greek and Cypriot MEPs, calling them to denounce this despicable distortion of history. In the EU Parliament, both the KKE MEPs, Kostas Papadakis and Lefteris Nikolaou-Alavanos, denounced the resolution and the anti-communist propaganda.In a statement published today in 902 portal, the KKE group in EU Parliament points out:“With the votes of the People’s Party, the Social Democrats, the Liberals, the Greens and the Conservative Reformists, the EU Parliament overwhelmingly passed the despicable joint anti-communist resolution under the title: “On the importance of the European remembrance for the future of Europe”. It is proved that the European Union has proclaimed anti-communism into its official ideology. It leads, along with bourgeois government, the bans on the activity of Communist Parties and communist symbols, the persecutions against communists and the communist ideology. It guides the unacceptable effort to distort and rewrite history by using the unhistorical equation of communism with fascism.Despite the negative correlation of forces, the KKE group in EU Parliament, with its interventions, fought against anti-communism and the distortion of history, revealed the aspirations behind the shameful resolution against the people and their struggle. It gave documented answers to the anti-communist campaign. The people will place the resolutions and the propaganda of the bourgeois political powers where they belong, in the dustbin of history.”On this issue, the Press Office of the CC of the KKE issued the following statement:The European Parliament proves to be a flag bearer of anti-communism which is the official ideologyof the EUIn a statement on the European Parliament’s outrageous anti-communist resolution, the Press Office of the CC of the KKE states:“The KKE condemns the despicable, anti-communist joint resolution of the European Parliament, signed by the political groups of the People’s Party, the Social Democrats, the Liberal, the Greens and the Conservative Reformists.The purpose of this reactionary monstrosity is to legalize the ban on communist parties and communist symbols imposed on a number of EU member states, such as the Baltic States and the so-calledVisegradGroup, the generalization of criminalization and persecution of communist ideology and the action of the people’s forces that fight together with the Communists and resist the anti-popularbarbarity.It provocativelydistorts history, equating communismwith fascismin an unhistorical manner. It paves the way for fascist gangs and far-right forces which are developing in Europe, whitewashing Nazism and its hideous crimes.The decisive contribution of the Soviet Union to the smashing of the fascist monster, with the blood of millions of Soviet people, the incalculable sacrifices of the communists who led the heroic resistance movement against the Nazi yoke,are still engraved in the peoples’ memory.The European Parliament proves to be a flag-bearer of anti-communism, which is the official ideology of the EU, a forerunner and a necessary complement to the harsh anti-popular policy it imposes together with bourgeois governments in its member states.History has been irrevocably written by the peoples with their struggles, and the apologists of the capital and capitalist barbarity will not rewrite it with resolutions. Those MEPs who vote for this anti-communist construct take on a serious responsibility that our people will judgestrictly” (inter.kke.gr).
With google translate help from Greek, upper news says:
“With 535 votes in favor, 66 against and 52 abstention, on September 19th, the outrageous anti-communist resolution by the European Parliament, which once again confirmed that EU is the flagship in the anti-communist campaign.”
After translate with google this tweet says:
“Art.12 The European Parliament requires the European Commission to finance anti-communist campaigns through projects already approved as the “Rights and Values Program 2021-2027” endowed with 642 million euros. “[Then we ask who finances VOX]
I have checked the European Commission related link in English pages and I have found this one from this link: (May 30, 2018)
3. EU Justice, Rights and Values Fund
The Commission is also proposing a new Justice, Rights and Values Fund, comprising of the Rights and Values, and Justice programmes. The Fund has a proposed budget allocation of €947 million over the 7 years, €642 million for the Rights and Values programme and €305 million for the Justice programme.
At a time where European societies are confronted with extremism, radicalism and divisions, it is more important than ever to promote, strengthen and defend justice, rights, and EU values. For instance, this programme will help fight inequalities and discrimination, better protect children, and improve judicial cooperation to better fight criminality and terrorism. The Fund will contribute to the further development of a European area of justice based on the rule of law, on mutual recognition and mutual trust. It will also enhance and support the key role of Non-Governmental Organisations and civil society in promoting, safeguarding and awareness raising for EU common values and ensuring people can enjoy their rights.
The creation of the new Fund represents a simplification as compared to the current situation of 3 programmes. In particular, the area of citizenship, which is currently dealt with by 2 different programmes, will be covered by the new Rights and Values programme.
Already the resolution is starting with these words:
“The European Parliament,
having regard to the universal principles of human rights and the fundamental principles of the European Union as a community based on common values…”
So, it seems that anti-communism campaign fund already set in 2018.
In here you can see which group gave favor, against or absentions for resolution. S&D Group is interesting in here, because inside it Labour Party UK members, I do not know what were their votes but yes they are the ones who call themselves comrade, haha!
In here also, you can listen KKE- Communist Party of Greece member Κωνσταντίνος Παπαδάκης-Kostas PAPADAKIS’s speech against EU parliament’s resolution debate. (he is also from NI group) its English.
All speeches of the members for the resolution in here as written, if anyone wants to see who said what.:) https://www.europarl.europa.eu/doceo/document/CRE-9-2019-09-18-ITM-017_EN.html
Besides, Russian Foreign Ministry Spokesman M.V. Zakharova respons to a question from RIA Novosti Agency regarding the adoption by the European Parliament of the resolution on the Importance of Preserving Historical Memory for the Future of Europe from here:
“The Russian Foreign Ministry is trying to refrain from commenting on the activities of the European Parliament. However, in this case, they are forced to make an exception, since we are talking about the next round of gross falsification of history…The European Parliament marked yet another outrageous attempt to equate Nazi Germany – the aggressor country – and the USSR, whose peoples liberated Europe from fascism at the cost of huge sacrifices…By hushing up the pages that are unpleasant for themselves and interpreting the “retouched” version of events at their discretion, the European Parliament finally loses touch with reality. But it is such that in a number of European countries they rehabilitate Nazi criminals, mass rallies of Waffen-SS veterans and their supporters take place, neo-Nazi organizations feel at ease. This is a true threat to the fundamental principles of democracy and human rights…We consider unacceptable a distortion of the past. History, in our deep conviction, should remain the destiny of responsible professionals, and not politicians who use it for their narrowly selfish purposes.”
I did not translate upper lines from Russian, google translate did it; I am lazy today.:))
The Communist Youths present in Athens, on the occasion of the 45th Communist Youth Festival of Greece (Odigitis Festival), condemned the anti-communist resolution of the European Parliament. Communist party youth organizations of 36 countries issued statement.
And here its the text of that resolution my earthling friends: http://www.europarl.europa.eu/doceo/document/B-9-2019-0100_EN.pdf
According to resolution, Communism is equal with Nazism and a number of measures such as the ban of communism symbols and the remove of monuments are required. My all earthling friends, are you aware of the danger?
ps: Actually this week I was going to make a post about a different thing after the summer. But this is urgent and it needs to be primary.
Also, WD and I, we are happy to see you again!:)
I’ve always dreamed of a world and a universe in this way. A world that all people and all living creatures in the universe can live together in peace..
Is this possible? Yes, it is possible. But how long can it be done, it’s entirely in the hands of human beings. I’ve wanted to write this article for a long time ago. I think it has been better in these days especially just after the 100th anniversary of end of World War I; the days which the reasons of the start of the war are repeated, but still the days that the people paper over the realities. Because economic conditions are worsening, and Europeans are more likely to embrace racism, fascism and extreme nationalism. Three days ago, what happened in Poland on anniversary of independence day is the best example.
When the demonstration will be organized by fascist groups for the 100th anniversary of Poland’s independence in 1918 was banned, it was turned into a “government program”. Fascists and racist groups participated in the demonstrations in Warsaw with the participation of President Andrzej Duda. Last year, 60 thousand people attended to Independence Day’s demonstrations, in this year the participation has been about 250 thousand people. At the action, which turned into a show of extreme right and fascists, was shouted against communists, Jews and Muslims.
In the action that the police builded wall against the people who protested against the fascist demonstrators, the fascist groups shouted slogans such as “Islam is the enemy of Europe”, “Delete Islam”, “Our way is nationalism”, “greedy Jewish”, “Communists will be hung in the trees instead of leaves”.
Poland’s right-wing president Andrzej Duda told a crowd at the start of the demonstration in Warsaw yesterday. “We are walking under a white-red flag with a welcome to commemorate those who fought for Poland and the independence and sovereignty of the country,” he said. Former Prime Minister of Poland and President of the European Union (EU) Council Donald Tusk also participated in the action.
The situation for the discreet and rational Poles seems really bad. In particular, there is a large community that has never taken any lessons from history in Poland. For example, didn’t the Polish fascists ever watch this movie?
Hatred, Wołyń/Volhynia is one of the most horrible films I have watched in my life on this planet. Even to watch any good horror movie isn’t that effective like this movie. It is the best example of what fascists done and what fascists can capable of. The massacres of Poles in Volhynia by faschist, which co-operated with Nazis, how the massacre was organized within the churches, even how the children were slaughtered, and how the fascists got pleasure(!) pervertedly, even how the Polish poet Zygmunt Jan Rumel was killed brutally, and many others are described in this film. And in 2018, the fascist groups in Poland argue that the solution is again fascism. This must be a tragicomic joke!
But it is not. What happened at the 100th year demonstration in Poland is not a joke, unfortunately. People can be hostile to their neighbours they have been living together for years, or to those who come with the hope of life from outside to their land. Since the planet earth has been experiencing a new kind of migration of tribes (more last 15 years), it seems that extreme rightism and fascism will continue to increase, especially since the European continent was home to these new kind of migration of tribes. The hope that people will live in peace remains to another century again.
I had thought a long time ago, “what was the most important thing that would make people’s lives together in peace?” In fact, for this, to answer to this question was needed first: “What led human societies to fight and war? The ambition of wealth, greed or interests?” When we write these and similar reasons one by one, economic dynamics emerge. As a result of the community leaders and their relationship with the money-power centers which these leaders are somehow connected, when the economic situation in society worsens, these leaders can somehow drag the society into a war. In fact, the reason of why the economy is not reflected equally in people’s lives is these mismanagement and money-power centers, but despite this, societies can erase the reasons/facts and fight against the different groups in the same society or the people of the other countries.
There are, of course, many reasons of why they erased these facts. At first, there are a sense of belonging and self-identification. How? If a person does not endeavor to develop own level of personal learning (with or without school), when he/she finds him/herself in any economic dilemma, he finds himself among those whom he can act together with depending on the same religion or the same nationality (sometimes it can be the same race). Because he feels that he belongs in these groups. After all, when these groups gather, they don’t ask him what book he’s read yesterday. The only important point is that the same nationality and the same sense of religion are intense and unifying. The unification of the same nationality and the phenomenon of the same religion gives that person the power to relax him/herself.
Because in real, he is powerless and weak
Let’s say he has a job and he’s going to work everyday. The salary at work does not increase, but economic conditions are not good in the country. He sees that people who have not got the same religion with him and are not the same nationality, work with the same or less salary. He wants to create a resistance against them. As a result, he sees the land he lives on as the primary right of the people in his nationality and the same religion. With the time the people from different nationalities and religions become enemies for him. Who knows how many nights he became sleepless by thinking “where these guys came to my country, damn them!”. And again the next day after the sleepless night, how many times he thought, “These guys must get out of my country.”
The same example is more intense in one who is unemployed. Seeing that every door that has closed his face when he seeks a job, seeing every employer who is hiring a person from another nationality or religion with less salary, his sleepless nights are rising. The only trump in their hands in both examples is that they think that the real right of that land is the people of own nationality and religion.
This will feel true at first sight to every person. Because if the entire family of a person has lived in that land for centuries, if they have paid the taxes, if he has endured that distress with all the people on the land in any difficult time, then the genetic coding is activated and it would be created the right to think that he is the first owner of this land. People belonging to another religion and nationality who come to his country from outside reach the usurper condition. So they are chosen as enemies from first-hand.
To see the people of different nations or the people who depending on a different thought or religion as enemy
This is the easiest way. It is easiest to think that the outsiders, or the different elements among the people, they always encroach on the rights. He does not think why these people came to his country, and more importantly, he does not think about his own country’s rulers(probably the majority has always voted for them) have taken actions that would harm to those people, even his country bombarded their country.
If we speak on Poland,(from wiki page)
The Multi-National Force – Iraq (MNF–I), often referred to as the coalition forces, was a military command during the 2003 invasion of Iraq and much of the ensuing Iraq War, led by the United States of America (Operation Iraqi Freedom), United Kingdom (Operation TELIC), Australia, Spain and Poland, responsible for conducting and handling military operations. (2003-2011)
After 2011, at 2014 in this time, Poland has been one of the 77 countries in the coalition led by the US.
And one of the most famous movements of this coalition army is to hit civilians constantly in Syria!
The coalition has publicly admitted to causing 892 civilian deaths since the began anti-ISIL operation in 2014.
Monitoring group Airwars says the number of civilian deaths acknowledged by the coalition is well below the true toll of the bombing campaign, estimating that at least 6,259 non-combatants have lost their lives.
The latest news on November 9, was the same again,
In short, because of the groups that extremist right-wing Poles felt belonging, in some countries people are dying, war is going on, people are becoming homeless. And when these people have to flee and become refugee, the far-right Poles and their leaders see them as enemies. It is really interesting!
An far-right-wing Pole who knows that his country is bombing these countries, does not think about it even if he knows this fact. Because that’s the hard part. And choosing that side will drive him away from the nationality and religion that he feels to belong. But he wants to belong. That’s what defines his identity; his religion and nationality. He cannot accept that the people of other countries have come to his own land because of the crimes committed by the rulers he has voted. His acceptance is not possible. Because he falls into emptiness when he accepts. This emptiness destroys his emotion and thought on retrieval.
The thing to be retrieved actually is the sense of justice
So in fact, the answer of first question I asked “What led human societies to fight and war?” is the lack of sense of justice.
People want justice essentially. If there is a life in fair conditions, if they live with equal sharing under equal social rights, then the sense of justice will be in safe. When this feeling is in safe, the people in their own society or other nationality or religion will not bother him. Because they will know that everyone lives on an equal conditions and each individual is taking his/her right; neither more nor less.
If the states and state administrators can provide justice, the people of that country can live in peace. The best sentence on this subject, I think, was told by Caliph Ali in history. He said that about this: “The religion of the state is the justice.” I know it’s interesting that I’ve put the words of a caliph in here as an atheist extraterrestrial, my dear earthling friends. But this sentence is really good, is not it?.;)
After all, if the elected rulers are not fair in the public, if the people cannot benefit from the rights equally, then the main responsible are the rulers. However, nationalism and religion are such a sharp sword in the hands of fascism that you cannot see even the reflection of the sword on the parts that it cut. Because it leaves nothing. It’s the same as it happened before, and it seems that it will happen again.
What are the limits and dimensions of rising fascism in Europe
In the case of France,
We see the development of Ms Le Pen and right-wing National Front like that. Le Pen is right-wing, but Macron is really opponent of her? It’s so funny to say that he is not right-wing for someone who says these words.
“President Emmanuel Macron said on Wednesday it was “legitimate” to pay tribute to Marshal Philippe Petain, who led the French army to victory in World War One’s Battle of Verdun but decades later collaborated with Nazi Germany during World War Two.” (6 Nov. 2018)
Is Macron ignorant? Although his words did not have a side to be defended, immediately defended his words by the government. He did not take steps backward either. As it turns out, the fact that he joined the socialist party at the age of 24 did not create any development for him.
The map in the news of BBC in September 10, 2018, under the title “Europe and nationalism: A country-by-country guide” draws the attention.
While the rise of nationalism in the countries in the middle and south of the map depends on the fact that more refugees are in these countries, economic conditions are predominant. Well, in the north, why the nationalism is rising by 17% -18% in Sweden and Finland? The economic conditions of those living in these countries are much better than in the southern European countries. I wonder, could it be some of the Swedish or Finns decided to try nationalism as a new taste because of they were so bored, haha! Kidding aside, I don’t think so.
About a year ago I came across a video on youtube.
It was an interview with actor Gustaf Skarsgård, the actor of Floki’s role in Vikings TV series. (Okay, okay I confess, I did not find this video by chance. I’m watching Vikings TV series, and I was wondering what would happen in the new season. We, the extraterrestrials like to get spoilers, haha!) At the beginning of video, the interviewer asks questions about Vikings. As understood from the interview, the interviewer is Norwegian origin person and I guess he lives in America. The part that attracts my attention starts at 2:48 seconds of the video. During the conversation, the interviewer says that a Norwegian singer said “Norwegians are prude and stupit”. And he asks to Gustaf Skarsgård:“You are standing up for Norwegians here?” And Skarsgard answer is very natural. Like that:
“No, I am just standing up for, for, for, for humans in general. I don’t care that much about nationality.”
Yes, he says “for” four times. I think he thinks in the same time and even Skarsgard sounds like stuttering. It’s like there’s nothing he can do. His brain cells were probably shocked by the question. He is a very good player, and as well as being a good player, he obviously has improved himself. He is capable of a being universal actor. (Not yet, because Galactic Council Universal Art Administration, Human-made Visual and Performing Arts Department, did not take Vikings usage right yet; when they take, he can be universal.;))
If you are a person like Gustaf Skarsgard, that is, language, religion, color and race are not important for you, you can confuse in front of such a question with a momentary pause. But the interviewer goes on and says:
“Scandinavians, we have to stick together too you know.”
Apparently the interviewer is insistent. Somehow he wants to establish a bond by referring to more general population, he points to all Scandinavians. I don’t know why he’s doing this. Have the Scandinavians ever been exposed to racism in anywhere on the planet? Are they an oppressed race? For them, “Scandinavians and dogs cannot enter” on the doors of restaurants was written? Did the other people search for Scandinavians door by door for burning or killing/hanging them in history? Was any banner hold such as “get the hell out of my country” by pointed to Scandinavians in any country? Is there something the world doesn’t know about, but only the Scandinavians have quietly endured and this interviewer knew? Why this interviewer was wanting to create a Scandinavian union like the power of Voltron? I’m confused. Gustaf Skarsgard seems to be confused too; this should be caught unawares. At first, Skarsgard says yeah, but he come to himself with a smile: “Yeah,… Europeans… and the members of the planet and all.”
Most likely, after Skarsgard’s first “yeah” response, during the milliseconds it has been transferring in his brain like that: “What I am saying! Why only Scandinavians? No, all Europeans. No no, why only the Europeans! All members of the planet, yes, we must all stand together.”; like every rightminded and humanist human being. This was reflected in his words. (PS: Even though WD has understood his words as unite against extraterrestrials, I do not agree with him.:))
After all, this very short moment and detail in this video had led me to think a year ago. I’ve always thought that northern Europeans are less nationalistic and more inclusive societies. Of course, I had information about the period when some Norwegian collaborated with the Nazis. Like some informations as described in this article: The Dark Sides of Norwegian History
I even don’t mention about what happened to Lebensborn children especially in Norway.
Or again, when we look at history, we know that a group in Sweden has united with the Nazis. Or what happened to the Indigenous people of Northern Europe, Saami / Sami people (In Turkish and Russian, they called as Lapon people and their land is Lapponia) who are lesser known among the indigenous communities in the world? If you look at what is told in this film, no good things have happened to Sami people in Sweden.
I knew these facts, but I still was thinking that Scandinavians could always be less nationalistic and even less racist in Europe. I think mine was a stereotyped idea about Scandinavians.
While the economic conditions in the Scandinavian countries are better than many European countries, where this mentality comes from? And according to bbc’s article, nationalist parties are almost effective in one-fifth of the population of these countries. I found an interview-article about it. The title and link is in here: “Why is the far-right on the rise in Scandinavia?”
When you read it, even though it was two years ago, you can observe some things. There are some comments under this article. And I think the most remarkable comment is following:
“Because the left has abandoned their own people and jeopardized the safety of citizens with reckless illegal immigration policies. The left deserves its fate and I truly hope their only way is OUT.”
In other words, when left-leaning people lose their sense of security in their own country, they question the decisions of a leftist administration. For example, the article says “Sweden by alone received more than 160,000 asylum seekers in 2015, more than any other EU state” This looks good from the outside. So, it means that among countries that bombed Syria, at least Sweden accepts own responsibility. But if the arriving refugees create a security threat, it is still up to the laws that the government will implement. However, in order to put pressure on government decisions, I do not understand the logic of moving from left-wing to right-wing. Does it mean they tried all the ways and decided to be the rightist when they could not find any solution? I do not think so. It’s the easy part, and it’s nothing but to take the easy way out.
When talking about rising fascism, it is not possible not to pass over Ukraine. After all, this beautiful country is now almost becoming synonymous with fascism. In Ukraine, fascism is even bigger. Even children are now trained in Ukrainian nationalist camps. Details and videos of AP news dated 12.11.2018: Training kids to kill at Ukrainian nationalist camp
KIEV, Ukraine (AP) — The campers, some clad in combat fatigues, carefully aim their assault rifles. Their instructor offers advice: Don’t think of your target as a human being.
So when these boys and girls shoot, they will shoot to kill.
Most are in their teens, but some are as young as 8 years old. They are at a summer camp created by one of Ukraine’s radical nationalist groups, hidden in a forest in the west of the country, that was visited by The Associated Press. The camp has two purposes: to train children to defend their country from Russians and their sympathizers — and to spread nationalist ideology.
“We never aim guns at people,” instructor Yuri “Chornota” Cherkashin tells them. “But we don’t count separatists, little green men, occupiers from Moscow, as people. So we can and should aim at them.”
I think we will write more and more articles about this and we will read the news. Of course, there is no cure for extreme nationalism, you can’t cure people by giving a medicine. But with justice, education and equal conditions, you can save people from extreme nationalism and fascism. Of course, in order to do this, the public needs to act in an organized manner.
In my case, the situation is worse. We already had a limited number of countries that we can visit on the planet. For example, we, the extraterrestrials can never go to US, because since Roswell, we are all considered as the experimental object at there. We can’t go to Japan either; even if Japanese people look polite and rational, they have interesting thought structures, and we have our suspicion and fear that they will make us test subject. As a communist and atheist alien, we cannot go to Ukraine, for example. Ukrainian man says clearly that you have read above, “we can and should aim .. little green men …” The fascists in Poland want to use communists instead of leaves in the trees; you have read also this upper lines. There are many other countries in the list, but these are the first. For us, the first ages of humanity were unique times to visit the planet earth. The human race was not so intensely spread into the continents. The ones, Homo Sapiens who started to be exist, were engaged in the slaughter to the Neanderthals and wiping them off the planet. Already in the rest of their times they were living in the caves by painting and they were trying to make human babies. So it was the best time for us. But not now. And unfortunately, much worse future is waiting for both us and common sense people.
News was taken from SoL.news
According to the new laws in Denmark, in immigrant neighborhoods, which are defined as ‘ghetto’, some crimes will be double punished, and the children who are living in these low-income areas will be subjected to cultural assimilation under the name of ‘education of values’ by begining from one years old.
While other Danish citizens are not obliged to take any preschool education until the age of 6, the trainings scheduled for at least 25 hours a week are compulsory for children of families living in ghetto from one years old. According to the law, which mainly involves the neighborhoods of Muslim families, the social security payments of families which do not send their children to the trainings of “values” such as Christmas, Easter and Danish are being cut off.
Prime Minister Lars Lokke Rasmussen who gave a place for integration of immigrants at his speech at new year warned that ghettos could “reach out their tentacles onto the streets” by spreading violence, and that because of ghettos, “cracks have appeared on the map of Denmark.”
Double punishment for immigrant neighborhoods
That tough approach is embodied in the “ghetto package.” Of 22 proposals presented by the government in early March, most have been agreed upon by a parliamentary majority, and more will be subject to a vote in the fall. One measure under consideration would allow courts to double the punishment for certain crimes if they are committed in one of the 25 neighborhoods classified as ghettos, based on residents’ income, employment status, education levels, number of criminal convictions and “non-Western background.”
Electronic ankle bracelets for immigrant youngs
Some proposals have been rejected as too radical, like one from the far-right Danish People’s Party that would confine “ghetto children” to their homes after 8 p.m. Challenged on how this would be enforced, Martin Henriksen, the chairman of Parliament’s integration committee, suggested in earnest that young people in these areas could be fitted with electronic ankle bracelets.
The proportion of immigrants coming from Muslim countries such as Afghanistan, Iraq and Syria is 13 percent in Denmark, which has 5 million 700 thousand population. The unemployment rate in the places where Muslim immigrants are majority is estimated to be 40 percent, and it is estimated that more than half of the immigrant population has a very low income.
The inspiration for this title is the banner below.
At the Greek capital, Athens, held a ceremony marking the “May 19th, genocide of the Pontian Greeks”. Syriza and the Independent Greeks took the high level of participation from the coalition government. Government spokesman Gavrila Sakellaridis, asked recognition “political murder and persecution of Pontian Greeks’ from Turkey.
It is being claimed 353.000 Pontian Greeks people were killed by Turks in 1914-1922. (In fact, the organizers of the memorial day acted merciful. According to some web sites, this figure reaches up to 1 million!)
Is it surprise? Nooo! As I have said in one of my old posts:
In fact, imperialists, who cause all kinds of dirty history and massacre, create enmity among other peoples to cover their own sinners by creating scapegoat. The Turks are the best example of the scapegoat in human history!
And in some countries like Greece, some fascists are being used for this creation. And this post is adressing these fascists, not the other Greeks!
At the meeting on May 19, that banner was seen, like the many others. It is writing on it:
“The non recognition of the genocide is a sign of Nazisim.”
As you can see, the 3 historical people on the banner. Second one is Ataturk, third one is Lenin. And I guess the first one is Tsar Nikolai Aleksandrovich Romanov, but I am not sure he is tsar or not.
Now, in this equation, if we remove tsar from the equation, the remaining two people have made their own countries independent, saved the people from the tsar and the sultan, and one of signed and created the Soviet revolution, the other one the Turkish revolution. And these people are included as two elements under a banner as an example of Nazism!
(I do not know what kind of brains of those who prepare this banner? What they drunk or ate? But, it needs to be very solid substance to be stoned like that. To get high like them, I want to same what they drunk or ate. Haha!)
In the meantime, those who accused persons who would not be the fascist with Nazism, resorted to violence.
Yiannis Boutaris, age 75, the mayor of Greece’s second-largest city Thessaloniki has been treated in hospital after being beaten up by about a dozen people.
He was attending an event commemorating too, but the right extremists forced him to the ground, punching and kicking him.
He is Thessaloniki mayor. And Thessaloniki is called “Selanik” by Turks. This city is also the city where Mustafa Kemal Ataturk borned in 1881. So many Turks visit the Ataturk’s house in the city for many years. The mayor as known as a person, who tries to give the effort to establish a peaceful dialogue between the Turks and the Greeks. Yiannis Boutaris received intense criticism after being elected mayor in 2012, because of his words “Turks are my brother”. Against the accusations, he had said that his aim “is not to be liked but to be useful.”
Now, when thinking, what can do these fascists who even can not bear the words of the peaceful people in their own when they see a peaceful Turk tomorrow?
It’s a very dangerous way! There have been those who have gone this way before!
Like, the Armenian terrorist organization Asala has killed 38 Turkish consul generals and diplomats in many different countries between 1973 and 1984, backed by the French government. These Turkish diplomats were in many different cities of countries, from Paris to Los Angeles. Some Asala killers of them were punished, others were free.
If 38 diplomats of US or Britain or France had been killed by an terror organization, then the boms would have rain to that country of terrorists. But when Turkish diplomats are killed, all western imperialists play three monkeys. Of course they will not see the terror they created themselves.
Why the Republic of Turkey and Ataturk are always the target?
Why did I say that. In many ways I can explain this historically. However in here, there is a fact that has been put into the eyes of people especially in the Armenian genocide allegations and in the Pontian genocide allegations that the planned hatred behind these claims is obviously created by the western imperialists.
Each country has important historical memorial or important days. Like 4th of July in America.
There are 3 important days of the Republic of Turkey. Every year the celebrations and festivities are being held for these 3 days.
19 May – The begining of the independence war of Turkey, the day which Ataturk started to path of independence, 19 May 1919
April 23 – The day of the opening of the first parliament of the Republic of Turkey April 23, 1920
October 29 – The Republic was declared, October 29, 1923
This three day in Turkey, are celebrated as
The commemoration of Ataturk, youth and sports day
The national sovereignty and children’s day
And let’s see, which days are being commemorated of Armenian genocide and Pontian genocide by some countries including Greece and Armenia.
Every year Greecks and the some counties commemorate 19 May as Pontian Greeks genocide. Into the supporting web pages of Pontian Greeks genocide claims, the events’ begining day is November 1914 and ends to 1922. But they chose the 19 May day to commemoration.
Every year Armenians and the some countries commemorate 24 April as Armenian genocide. Into the supporting web pages of the Armenian genocide claims, the events’ begining date is February 25, 1915 and ends in 1920’s. But they chose the 24 April day to commemoration.
Surprisingly there is not any commemoration genocide on this day yet. But I am sure one day, October 29 will be remembered as another country’s people genocide day which made by Turks. I do not thinks so, the imperialists will pass this day over, haha!
When I look to the especially selected days, I see Turkish revolution which was started by Ataturk and the Republic of Turkey where he led the build, caused distress to western imperialists. What about you?
I also believe that the fascists of every country are always condemned to return to the dark holes they come from. I believe that the Greeks do not/will not support the actions of these fascists and they always want to live in peace. (Please also read my post “έλα my brother” I wrote earlier.)
The two sides of the Aegean Sea are always close together. Even when you think you are farthest away!
It ends always with big wars…

52 YEARS AFTER FASCIST GENOCIDE, INDONESIANS SCARED OF “COMMUNIST GHOSTS”
From Jakarta and Yogyakarta:Andre Vltchek
It was once again a hot, muggy day in Jakarta. The air was full of pollutants, epic traffic jams blocking entire center of the city. Biasa, as locals would say, or in a lax translation, ‘business as usual’.
It is September 29th, 2017, Friday, just one day before the most sinister anniversary in the entire Southeast Asia.
On September 30th, 1965, the Indonesian military obeying orders from foreign powers (mainly the US and the UK), overthrew the progressive and anti-imperialist government of President Sukarno, murdering between 1 and 3 million men, women and children (including almost all members of the Communist Party of Indonesia – PKI). This was done with the direct help of almost all the major religious organizations (Muslim, Protestant, Catholic and Hindu). The bloodshed continued well into 1966, and the “Rivers were choked with corpses and ran red from blood,” as I was told by Pramoedya Ananta Toer, the greatest Indonesian novelist. All the hopes for a socialist, just and egalitarian motherland were wasted.
Before the coup, Indonesia used to be a true internationalist nation, and was one of the proud founders of the Non-Aligned Movement (the West Javanese city of Bandung hosted its establishing conference in 1955). President Sukarno and his progressive and patriotic government used to hold in their hands almost all the natural resources, trying to build a proud, artistic and productive nation. Sukarno once even humiliated the US Ambassador, in front of a huge crowd, at a packed stadium: “To hell with your aid!” He did not need any Western aid. He was presiding over potentially one of the richest nations on Earth.
The Communist Party of Indonesia (PKI), the third largest in the world after those of the Soviet Union and China, was going to win the elections, comfortably and democratically, in 1966, while being fully supported by President Sukarno. Their manifesto was clear: anti-imperialism, social justice and land reforms. But who were some of the largest landowners in Indonesia during that period? Religious leaders! And they, together with the military and corrupt elites, decided: “No!” This has to be stopped! No justice. No internationalism. No socialism.” They betrayed the nation and its people; they committed treason and on September 30, 1965, overthrew socialist democracy.
The results were horrifying. Perhaps the worst massacres of the 20th Century took place. Mass slaughter, mass rape, and cutting off of female breasts, torture, and shortly after the initial horrors, overflowing prisons and concentration camps. Around 40% of all the teachers of Java were slaughtered and the military was substituted into the school classrooms. Film studios and traditional theatres were shut down, and writers were sent to Buru concentration camp. Intellectualism was fully discouraged, while Communism, the Chinese language and culture, but also all progressive arts and creativity were either ridiculed, or out rightly banned. Promoted instead, were Western-style turbo-capitalism (that which was invented for the colonies, not that for the local consumption in Europe and North America), ‘religions’ (based on repetitive rituals, not on intellectual or spiritual search for God), ‘family values’ (read: patriarchal oppression), an empty pop culture, and selfishness, boosted by consumerism. All this combined gave birth to some of the worst corruption levels in the world.
Indonesia as it used to be before September 30, 1965, died. Unable to produce anything of substantial value, it began perpetrating the unbridled plunder of its own natural resources, predominantly on behalf of foreign conglomerates. The entire beautiful and naturally rich, enormous islands, like Borneo (the largest island in Asia and the second largest in the world), Sumatra and Papua, were converted into devastated, poisoned and fully privatized ecological and social nightmares.
It seems that killing everything decent and hopeful has not been enough for this regime. Even memories have to be killed, even dreams. The great progressive past of Indonesia is being smeared and twisted, until there is nothing more left, only confusion and mechanical religious, family and commercial rituals.
Now, one of the mainstream Indonesian magazines Tempo put on its 25 September – 1 October 2017 cover: “SEKALI LAGI HANTU PKI” (“Once Again, Ghost of PKI”).
Whenever it suits the corrupt elites, the military and the religious cadres (three main pillars of the Indonesia oppressive regime), the Communist ghost is evoked. It is depicted as a monstrous, nasty, and murderous creature. Indonesian children were taught that the Communist hammer was there to smash the heads of the people, while the sickle was – to cut their throats…

While celebrating May 9 Victory Day, lets we look at the some pictures that shows how Soviets achieved this victory:
These photos and informations were taken from Russian 9 May web page.
This war against fascism was not easy, and success of Soviets at war has been trying to be ignored by European governments for last decades.
The following quotes from Kemal Okuyan, Member of the Central Committee of the Communist Party of Turkey, today’s article from SoL.org:
“The US and the UK were no more innocent than Hitler Germany in imperialist competition. Nevertheless, these two imperialist countries were making unmatched maneuvers to save themselves from the responsibility of war resulting in the bloodshed of the Soviet peoples, in which they were using a “libertarian” intelligence which had neither a backbone nor a memory. We made a mistake, it was necessary to keep the sins of the United States and Britain on the agenda constantly, but when this wasn’t made, the Soviets and Nazi Germany, plus Stalin and Hitler have been became identified in same impertinence area.
During the war, the alliance between the Soviets and the United States&Britain was so temporary as imperative as for all three. It was completely rotten, because the alliance was class-based mixed. The ideology of the Alliance was absent because of the existence of opposing ideologies. The Alliance could not agree on the definition of the enemy. It was not true that between 1941 and 1945 a “front of democracy” was established against fascism. A wing of western imperialism defended its own interests, the Soviet Union itself and humanity. It was the Soviet Union that held the promises of the war for four years as well as the war, and conformed to the rules of morality and diplomacy in relation to its allies. Before the end of the war, before Germany surrendered, that were the United States and the United Kingdom, which started a new war (it doesn’t matter cold or hot). We allowed this fact to be forgotten. With this, the lie that the Soviet Union represented authoritarian and the US represents a libertarian world, grew day by day.”
The attacks of the AKP are not slowing down: Academia, the Daily Cumhuriyet and the HDP…
The Communist Party – Turkey released a statement about the recent jailings of the pro-Kurdish MPs. The statement underscores the Justice and Development Party (AKP) government has to keep attacking to sustain its dissolving power.
This is a dissolution in mass
In today’s statement made by the Prime Ministry and directed to foreign press on the ongoing operation against several MPs of the Peoples’ Democratic Party (HDP), it was clear the Turkish government was trying to find a pretext for this operation. According to the statement, their being taken into custody like that was a normal procedure since they did not appear in court to give testimony!
The day before the Minister of Justice could only say “bad luck” after it was revealed that the prosecutor assigned to the Daily Cumhuriyet case was also under investigation for being a Gülenist.
It is not possible either to find any reasonable explanation for the AKP’s attacks to academia. Elections of university presidents were already an accessory created by the military regime established after the military coup on September 12, 1980. Even such an accessory was too much for the AKP regime.
At the core of these attacks lies the fact that the AKP has no other choice than suppressing every segment of the society. If they stepped back even a little, the power mechanisms that they can hardly hold together, i.e. the state apparatus, economy, profits of the capitalist class, the armed forces they sent to the Middle East and even their own political party would certainly collapse as a whole.
The AKP is not gaining any strength by attacking. It is just postponing the inevitable.
The Communist Party condemns the ongoing repressive practices as in the recent case of the HDP deputies and is in solidarity with those who are victimized, sacked, disentitled and restrained from doing their job under the pretext of the July 15 coup attempt although they have nothing to with the Gülenist sect.
On the other hand, this course of events also signals the dissolution of the line of opposition which has adopted a compromising stance against the dictatorship of the AKP. It is also a fact that neo-nationalists has been trying to get rid of their liberal competitors for an alliance with the AKP, by forwarding their complains to the AKP, while fascist and reactionist policies have been openly carried out. The main opposition party assumes that complaining about the unlawful purge in the public sector means a serious method of struggle against AKP. Then the question if they really oppose to anything becomes legitimate especially when the puppets appointed by the government to serve as substitutes for the elected mayors are unanimously accepted by the elected city councils. In a country where city councils accepted and tolerated appointment of trustees, it has also become possible to form a constitutional committee within the Grand National Assembly. Those who champion democracy can present their shows in the filthy lobbies of imperialist diplomacy as a struggle. All of them wait for an invitation from liberal/mainstream media channels that have been long known to be submitted to Erdoğan to demonstrate their opposition to the AKP. All of these are in dissolution.
What is happening in Turkey today coincides with a period in which the contradictions within the imperialist-capitalist system have sharpened to the utmost. It is not possible to discuss the actions of the AKP’without putting these contradictions at the center. It must be known that any “opposition” that blossomed out of any capitalist group or any imperialist power is a betrayal against the people of this country and gives the ruling party the opportunity to justify its actions. The same thing can be said about bombings terrorizing every inch of the public life.
This system demolishes the institution of politics in the mass.
The Communist Party calls workers, academics, the press workers who live on their labors to detach themselves from this rotten system.
For the time being the AKP seems to have the power to attack. However, it is not attacking because it is powerful, but because it has to. This road leads to nowhere. This kind of dead end that the system is approaching is an open invitation for our working people.

This kid, yesterday after the Portugal-France final match of Euro Cup 2016, he consoled the French fan while he was crying. It is so beautiful behavior, and I want to thank to this kid from here! He left his happiness in a moment and he thought to console the opposing team’s fan. And with this behavior, he showed me there is still hope for this planet!
I am losing my trust to humankind sometimes, but this scene caused to gain my trust back again. Maybe we don’t need too much thing to believe or trust, maybe we don’t need to look at the far away points. Here it is, this kid wrote just in 30 seconds how humanity should be, without the need to write hundreds pages of book about this.
Also, there were many scene we have seen in Euro 2016. If I started from last match, a moth have made a show. 🙂 This moth landed to Ronaldo’s eyelash, while he was in suffer. After Ronaldo injured this moth showed itself, and maybe it wanted to be a super hero moth 🙂 I have no idea why it made this show, but it was incredible!
I think one of the most interesting football player has been Ricardo Quaresma who is a football player in Besiktas team in Turkey and Portugal National Team at Euro Cup 1016. He is really good midfield player and forvet, but I am not sure how can he make many goals while he is playing in midfield, maybe he is kind of midfiled-forvet mix:) He showed himself with enjoyable play and the olive leaf at his head on final match of Euro 2016. It is being said this leaf is their national symbol. Maybe it is I don’t know, I only know Turkish’s and Greek’s olive:) But this leaf seemed very cool, no doubt!
When these were living into the football field at final match yesterday, French police was spraying the pepper gas to the French people out of the football field. After 6 pm the French police sprayed the pepper spray to the football fans at Fan Zone, because of they claimed that the enterence to the Fan Zone is forbidden after 6 pm.

If you don’t have money or you couldn’t find a ticket you can meet with pepper spray! This is another kind of rule of this system. And I don’t know have you ever tasted the pepper spray, my Earthling friends. It is painfull according to my experiences and, highly no recommended by me! 🙂
If I turned back into Euro Cup, we have seen many ugly things besides the good things. Especially, the war between British and Russian fans in Marseille, or British fans who threw coins to the refugees children. Yes, we had seen at March, PSV Eindhoven fans had made similar humiliation to the Gypsy children at Champions League.
And very first time at their history , North Ireland joined to Euro Cup in this year. And their opposite team had been Ukraine for a match. While the match was playing on field, the Ukranian fascists were showed their Nazi tattoos on tribunes. And these tattoos weren’t be usefull again, because Ukraine defeated with 2 goals by North Ireland 🙂
I started to my post with very beatiful kid. And I want to finish this post with very beatiful football team. This team is National Football Team of Iceland. They gave joy to all of us when they played their football game at Euro 2016. We have learnt and seen Iceland team in very first time. They were incredible! Even not only with their game, for example we learnt how we can call the whales? Yes 🙂 While the football team was on field the fans of Iceland on tribunes chanted this way:
After these scenes, we learnt that this ovation was made by Icelanders to call the whales. Very interesting! The team of Iceland with their good football, they came to the quarterfinals of Euro 2016. This is very big success for a team which joins first time at Cup. And the Iceland people met their team with ceremony when the team turned back motherland, and of course with whale call 🙂 Here it is:
At this video it is written “Viking war chant” as tittle. But I am very sure this chant meaning is firstly “to call whales”. Maybe this can be another mean or RT video makers made wrong.
Also, I’ve watched a video on youtube about Iceland football team, and a man was saying that: “We don’t have an army, if we go the war, we would easily be defeated. This is kind of army for us.”
Icelanders, I think you should be proud of yourself, if you don’t have army. This meaning is you are very peaceful people. Please you build your army over the sport or other good things. We loved you with this kind of army! And, thank you to Icelanders, because you showed us the soul of Vikings 🙂
