Alerta antifascista is mounting throughout Europe – in Germany, Greece, France, Switzerland, Spain, Austria, UK, and Sweden – against the rise of the far-right, encouraged by the capitalist racist and economic attacks on the working class, their first targets being the refugees and immigrants.
3 refugees were killed in Hamburg last week in an arson attack: a woman and her two kids, 6 and 7 years old. Police suspect a 13 year old boy, but are not clear on the motive. Some 300 people took it to the streets in a spontaneous painful silent demonstration against the racist and economic stigmatization of refugees or other “outsiders.” Autonomous activists in Germany, Spain and Greece are among the most active in Europe in their relentless struggles to protect refugees from being turned into scapegoats to the benefit of the far right and the ruling classes. For this they endure States’ repression and are targeted by Neo-nazis.
