Neo-fascist Redwatch web site active again
PR dla Zagranicy
Despite three men associated with the neo-fascist web site Redwatch being given prison sentences last year for propagating racial hatred in Poland the site is being regularly updated again.
Redwatch publishes online names and addresses of politicians and other individuals it considers as being “traitors to the race”.
In December last year a District Court in the western city of Wroclaw sentenced three men who worked on the neo-Nazi Redwatch site to up to one and half years in prison for “promoting a totalitarian regime in Poland and encouraging hatred towards people of different ethnic origin, nationality, race and religion”.
The web site has been taken off line several times, only to reappear again.
In the last month, the web site has been updated six times – the last entry on 10 October with details of the email address and Facebook page of a local politician in northern Poland.
The Gazeta Wyborcza daily claims that the decision to start updating the web pages again was taken at a rally in the Kujawy region, central Poland. of Blood and Honour, a neo-nazi group associated with Redwatch.
The resumption of activity on the Redwatch web site coincides with a number of incidents of racist vandalism in central and northern Poland, including the painting of Nazi symbols at the end of August on the memorial to victims of the 1941 Jedwabne massacre. (pg)
