Swedes tell racists: ‘We are not your women’

Swedes are hitting back following a series of far-right violent marches over the weekend which targeted asylum seekers and migrants.

Swedes took to social media to hit back after violent far-right groups attacking refugee youths in Stockholm over the weekend handed out flyers and posted online messages claiming they acted to protect “Swedish women”.

The hashtag #inteerkvinna (#notyourwoman) was trending in Sweden on Sunday, with women posting pictures of themselves on Twitter alongside messages saying “not in my name”.

“I’m not your woman. I don’t want your protection. You’re the ones making me scared, worried, angry and sad,” tweeted one.

“No racist will use me as an alibi to commit their acts of violence,” wrote another.

The campaign came in response to a series of violent weekend incidents in the Swedish capital which began on Friday evening when gangs of up to a hundred masked men marched through the city, beating up non-Swedes and handing out leaflets threatening further attacks. …

According to Aftonbladet newspaper, men were distributing leaflets on Friday evening with the slogan “It’s enough now!” which threatened to give “the North African street children who are roaming around” the “punishment they deserve.”

On Saturday there were also reports of violence linked to an anti-immigration protest in Stockholm, where at least three people were arrested for assaulting counter-demonstrators after members of neo-Nazi groups and hooligans gathered in the capital’s central Norrmalmstorg square.

Meanwhile, refugee teenagers living in the city’s 16 homes for teens and underage asylum seekers arriving in Sweden alone without their parents were told to stay inside following the violence.

“It’s of course sad that we have to do this. But it’s still important that we put the young people’s safety first,” Alexandra Göransson, social services manager in Stockholm, told the Expressen newspaper.

The Friday evening attack on refugee children was organised by the Swedish Resistance Movement, a neo-nazi group.

A group of some 100 neo-Nazi thugs marched through the centre of the Swedish capital Stockholm Friday evening, carrying out a series of brutal attacks on refugees and foreign-looking bystanders. The action was claimed soon afterwards by the fascist Swedish Resistance Movement in a statement advocating vigilante “justice” against what it termed the “criminal” actions of refugees: here.

Sieg-heiling fascists outgunned in Dover

Violence flares as neonazis try to stage anti-refugee demonstration

“HARDCORE sieg-heiling nazis” wielded iron bars and threatened journalists at a rally in Dover on Saturday.

Groups including the National Front, North West Infidels and Keep Britain White descended on the Kent port, which has long been a target for racists due to its ferry connections to mainland Europe.

An estimated 200 neonazis arrived, to be faced by 600 counterdemonstrators including clergy, councillors, local groups Dover Stand Up to Racism, Kent Anti-Racism Network and national campaigns the Anti-Fascist Network and Unite Against Fascism (UAF).

Violence broke out even before the marchers assembled.

On the way, coachloads of fascists and anti-fascists were involved in clashes on Saturday morning at Maidstone service station on the M20.

Anti-fascist coaches were attacked, one having its windscreen smashed, another daubed in blood with a swastika. Six people were injured and police said that a man had been arrested on suspicion of possessing an offensive weapon.

In Dover’s town centre, anti-fascists staged a peaceful meeting with speakers including shadow international development secretary Diane Abbott, local councillors and trade unionists.

But violence broke out when about 100 neonazis broke away from their main demonstration, forcing their way through police lines to attack the counterdemonstrators.

Weyman Bennett, joint secretary of UAF, witnessed the attack.

“We are talking about hardcore sieg-heiling nazis,” he said.

“I saw one of them throw a brick into the face of a protester who was just standing there. They produced iron bars. They threatened journalists.”

A female reporter covering the protest said one far-right demonstrator had threatened her, telling her she should be raped. A female anti-fascist protester suffered a broken arm. Five others were injured.

“The police’s attitude seemed to be more concerned about what the anti-fascists were doing than they were about the thugs who were attacking us. The police were facing us, not the attackers. The violence by the fascists was not dealt with,” said Mr Bennett.

Police said weapons, including a knife, knuckleduster and hammers, were seized during the anti-immigration rally.

It is understood two fascists and one anti-fascist demonstrator were arrested.

A Kent Anti-Racism Network spokesman said: “We now see across Europe a climate of bigotry and hatred is on the rise — the scapegoating of migrants, attacks on the Muslim community and an increase in anti-semitism.”

EYEWITNESS REPORT:

AWARD-WINNING Jewish LGBT activist Dan Glass was in Dover on Saturday to protest against the fascist groups taking to the streets.

After helping an injured fellow protester, he found himself face to face with hundreds of nazis and ended up in hospital.

He told the Star: “They punched me and I got a black eye. Obviously every attack they do emboldens them — they are out there to hurt, they are out there for blood.

“What was really shocking was the police protection of them when they were specifically out there to get blood.”

He added, however, that the policing was less of a concern than the fact that fascist groups like the National Front have made such a re-emergence.

Mr Glass is now safely back at home and recovering from the attack.

Turtle smuggling discovered in China

A total of 79 illegal alien live turtles were intercepted by inspection and quarantine authorities Saturday at an airport in Shanghai, east China.

From Xinhua news agency in China today:

Thousands of smuggled turtles seized in Shanghai

SHANGHAI, Jan. 31 — Shanghai customs said Sunday they seized more than 2,000 endangered turtles last November in what could be the city’s largest turtle smuggling case.

Customs officials said they discovered large numbers of live turtles hidden in six containers of crabs imported from Indonesia on Nov. 19. The containers were claimed by a Shanghai company.

Most of the turtles were endangered species including Amboina box turtle, pig-nosed turtle and spotted pond turtle.

The turtles are now in the care of local zoos, officials said.

The customs did not give more details, saying the investigation was still underway.

Environmentalists have warned China’s rising market for rare and exotic pets, such as turtles and snakes, has fueled smuggling.

Refugees presents flowers in Cologne

COLOGNE, GERMANY – JANUARY 16: A group of activists, mostly refugees, holds banners. Following that they presented flowers to the other people in the street during a picket staged to highlight racist and anti-refugee actions in Cologne, Germany on January 16, 2016.

The demonstrators had with them, eg, banners saying in German: ‘We are Syrians. We are against anti-women violence’ and ‘We are refugees from Syrria. We oppose racism and sexism’.

EU leaders: ‘No link’ between Cologne sex attacks and migrant crisis

European Commission denies link between migration crisis and attacks on women in Germany

By Matthew Holehouse, Brussels

7:43PM GMT 29 Jan 2016

The sex attacks that took place in Cologne on New Year’s Eve were simply a “matter of public order” and had nothing to do with the refugee crisis, Jean-Claude Juncker’s inner circle believe.

The European Commission will be the “voice of reason” and tell the public that there is no link between the migration crisis affecting the continent and attacks on women in Germany, internal minutes disclose, amid growing fears of a “xenophobic” backlash. …

They called for “the unconditional rejection of false associations between certain criminal acts, such as the attacks on women in Cologne on New Year’s Eve, and the mass influx of refugees.”

Cologne police says that usually each year in all those years before those refugees from Syria etc. arrived, there were about 50 reports of sexual harassment and rape during carnival celebrations.

Swedish nazis’ violence against children

Mobs of masked men in Stockholm station beat up refugee children

30 January 2016

Swedish media reported that the thugs, allegedly linked to Sweden’s football hooligan scene, were targeting unaccompanied minors with a ‘foreign’ background.

From daily The Independent in Britain today:

‘Hundreds’ of masked men beat refugee children in Stockholm

They handed out leaflets threatening to give ‘the North African street children who are roaming around’ the ‘punishment they deserve’

Samuel Osborne

Hundreds of masked men marched through Stockholm’s main train station on Friday evening, reportedly beating up refugees and anyone who didn’t appear to be ethnically Swedish.

Wearing all-black balaclavas and armbands, the men “gathered with the purpose of attacking refugee children,” Stockholm police spokesperson Towe Hagg said.

“I saw maybe three people who were beaten. That was no football brawl or something similar. They targeted migrants. I was quite scared and ran away,” an eyewitness told the Aftonbladet newspaper.

Before the attacks, the mob handed out leaflets with the slogan “It is enough now!” which threatened to give “the North African street children who are roaming around” the “punishment they deserve”.

The leaflet refers to the death of social worker Alexandra Mezher, who died after being stabbed at a refugee shelter for unaccompanied children.

Four people have been arrested in connection with the attacks – one for assaulting a police officer, while the others were charged with being masked in public, which is illegal in Sweden. All risk fines.

After the attack, the Swedish Resistance Movement, a neo-Nazi group, released a statement claiming the attack had “cleaned up criminal immigrants from North Africa that are housed in the area around the Central Station”.

“Police have clearly shown that they lack the means to stave off their rampage, and we now see no other alternative than to ourselves hand out the punishments they deserve.”

Sweden received a record 160,000 refugees last year.

The country has seen a sharp decline in newcomers since photo ID checks were introduced this month.

Germany: Hand grenade attack on refugee camp leaves site on lockdown

29 January 2016

A refugee camp in Villingen-Schwenningen was attacked with a live hand grenade early on Friday morning, with authorities inspecting the scene of the crime later in the day. The attackers removed the pin of the device and launched it at the Baden-Württemberg hostel which houses up to 170 refugees. However, the grenade failed to explode, resulting in no injuries. The incident comes as increasing levels of anti-immigrant violence swells in the region.

A good thing the nazi perpetrators of this were apparently clumsy nazis, preventing a bloodbath. If only their predecessors in Hitler’s Waffen SS would have been as clumsy, then the world would be a better place.

From daily The Independent in Britain today:

Hand grenade thrown at refugee shelter in Germany in latest attack on asylum seekers in wake of Cologne assaults

Asylum seekers were asleep in the building at the time and police said it was just ‘luck’ that the grenade did not detonate

Lizzie Dearden

A hand grenade was thrown into a refugee shelter in Germany overnight as officials said attacks against asylum seekers in the country hit a new level of “hate and violence”.

Police in the southern town of Villingen-Schwenningen said it was “just luck” that the device did not explode when it landed at 1.15am.

Around 20 asylum seekers were sleeping inside the building at the time and were evacuated while a bomb squad destroyed it in a controlled explosion.

Heiko Maas, the German justice minister, said the attack represented a new level of “hate and violence” that must be addressed by local and federal authorities.

“Grenades are already being thrown at refugee homes – we can’t wait until there is someone dead,” he added.

“We need to do everything we can to ensure xenophobic crimes are more rapidly solved and punished more severely.”

Herr Maas, it would help if the governments of Germany and other European countries would stop their policies of wars, which make more and more people into refugees. It would help if the authorities in Germany and other European countries would stop their anti-refugee policies, which contribute to a climate in which violent nazi crimes like this grenade throwing can thrive.

Attacks targeting refugees or their homes appear to have spiked in Germany following … sexual assaults … in Cologne on New Year’s Eve.

Several asylum seekers were badly beaten earlier this month after a vigilant group vowed to “clean up” the city, which has also seen thousands-strong protests by Pegida and other far-right groups.

In another assault near Dresden, a man wearing a swastika-emblazoned helmet and “Hitler moustacheattacked two Afghan men while they were sledging, and protesters on a violent rampage through Leipzig started fires and smashed windows.

Hundreds of incidents and plots had already been recorded before the Cologne assaults – mainly arson attacks on refugee accommodation, where swastikas and anti-immigration [slogans] have also been daubed.

Explosives were uncovered by police whoprevented a planned neo-Nazi assault on refugee centres with knives, baseball bats and guns in October.

Villingen-Schwenningen lies in Baden-Württemberg – one of two German states that have started taking refugees’ valuables and cash in controversial seizures also seen in Switzerland and Denmark.

Around 1.1 million asylum seekers arrived in Germany last year and the Government is now taking steps to restrict numbers after criticism of Angela Merkel’s decision to welcome all Syrian refugees.
