Echoes Of 1936 - The European Far-Right Rises

Is this Berlin in 1936?

One of the Nuremburg Rallies, perhaps? No. Looks like it, though, doesn't it?


It's now.

March, 2016, in Bratislava, Slovakia, and it's a parade by the 'Kotleba' Slovakia Peoples Party.

Kooks and Weirdo's, right?

Except - they got 8% of the vote in the last Slovakian Election, and gained 14 seats from nowhere. They are described as 'ultra-nationalist right-wing extremists' and are happy to be called such.


Compare their result with that of the KDH, the moderate Christian Democratic Party, who got wiped out - losing every Parliamentary member.

The worrying aspect of this is that no-one is surprised. Almost all nations of Europe have seen a rise in Parties espousing Extreme Nationalism, Hatred of Minorities, Supression of Rights and all the usual aspects of historical Fascism.

We have often been told, as veteran Anti-Fascists, that our battle is won, there are no more Nazis, only small groups of thugs dressing up.

No. The battle is never won. #NoPasaran.
