NETWORKS AGAINST NAZIS, NPD MARCHES STOPPED?, & Other Anti-Fascist News from Germany
By Kevin Stoda, Hessen, Germany
This is called an "Action Week Against Anti-Semitism" in Germany by the Netz.Gegen.Nazis.de. This week was chosen because November 9, 1938 was the day when most synagogues in Germany were burned down during the Nazi era. Judges are permitting an NPD march today, November 7, by the NPD in Friedberg, Hessen. Friedberg has a long history in the Jewish community in German, for example, many noted rabbis over the century came from Friedberg.
On August 1, 2009, a pair of NPD marches were stopped in the Hessen towns of Nidda and Friedberg by massive counter-demonstrations. In Friedberg, there were no less than five counter-demonstrations.
