“Nationalist” March in Central Vilnius on Lithuania’s 100th Birthday Ends Up in Usual Neo-Nazi Spirit

It started off as a sanitized version of neo-Nazi culture made to look like just “mainstream nationalist.” But by the time the event reached its peak, it featured hundreds of people carrying torches through some of the oldest streets of Vilnius Old Town, while worshiping a banner featuring six alleged Nazi collaborators, five of them deeply implicated in the Holocaust per se, thereby symbolically expressing some kind of glee at the successful ethnic cleansing which these “heroes” supported. The Catholic Church gave the events a de facto  blessing. The two open voices of morally clear protest were of the Jewish activist Daniel Lupshitz and the Catholic professor Dr. Andrius Kulikauskas. Defending History’s Julius Norwilla and Dovid Katz monitored the event.

UK | Slave owner compensation was still being paid off by British taxpayers in 2015

Bristol taxpayers in 2015 were still paying off debt borrowed by the government to “compensate” slave owners in 1833, the Treasury has revealed.

The revelations show that the £20 million (US$28 million) the government spent to reimburse the owners of slaves – who themselves were some of Britain’s richest businessmen – took the taxpayer 182 years to pay off. The descendants of slaves were never compensated, but it appears some would have been paying to compensation slave owners.

Greece | Greek football fans remember Odessa martyrs

February 15 Greek football fans counteracted Ukrainian fascists. Greece has strong anti-fascist trends in football fan movement, while racists and far right completely occupied Ukrainian stadiums.

Greek fans from the Antifa Block of AEK team hung out for the match AEK – Dynamo banner of this content:
“Odessa 02.05.2014 – Never forget, never forgive!
Solidarity with anti-fascist resistance in Ukraine and in the Donbas!
– AEK Antifa Blok »
On the other banner is written in Russian: “1942 – Start, 2018 – D Kiev. You do not respect your story yourself.”
This banner refers to the legendary Death Match played in the Nazi-occupied Kiev in the summer of 1942 between local and German teams. Most of the Ukrainian players favored the club of Dynamo Kyiv. Some time after this game, a number of football players were put in concentration camps, and some were shot.
On other banners the following slogans were written:
“Love AEK, hate racism!”
“Kick the fascists out of football!”
Unfortunately, the legendary Dynamo Kiev team, once a pride of Soviet Ukraine, is now controlled by fascists and fans of the KKK. Their ultras became notorious for their Nazi salutes, swastikas, white sheets of the KKK and racist attacks on the “non-whites”.
All this is well known abroad, and for those who did not know, the hooligans of the Dynamo helped them find out when they attacked the Russian-speaking people who were accidentally met in the center of Athens before the match.
