NDP deputy seeks entry into Australia

Holger Apple

Holger Apfel (pictured above) the deputy chairman of the far-right German National Democratic party of Germany (NDP) is believed to be seeking entry into Australia in order to participate in the 2005 Sydney Forum on August 27-29th.

The forum is a gathering of racist-right activists from across the white nationalist spectrum. This event is being put together by the tiny Australia First Party/Patriotic Youth League and their main organiser, the notorious Jim Saleam.

Holger Apfel is most well known for leading his NDP faction out of the Saxony parliament in protest during a minutes silence to commemorate the victims of the Auschwitz death camp.

Fight dem back! has alerted both the Department of Immigration and Multicultural Affairs (DIMIA) and the Australian Federal Police to the possibility of Herr Apfel seeking a visa. We are also coordinating a response with anti-racism groups in Germany.

The New South Wales Jewish Board of Deputies has lodged similar expressions of concern with Australian authorities.

Neither DIMIA nor the AFP are willing to publicly comment on this matter.

Mississippi Burning revisited

Edgar Ray Killen, the former KKK leader responsible for the deaths of three civil rights workers in 1964 was today sentenced to sixty years in prison.

Jurors took just 5 1/2 hours to convict the former Ku Klux Klan leader of manslaughter in the deaths of three men whose names are synonymous with the violence of the civil rights era: James Chaney, Andrew Goodman and Michael Schwerner. Graying black men who grew up in a segregated world, but lived to see it end, held their faces in their hands and sobbed in the audience. Outside the courtroom, there were cheers.

See our sister site the One People’s Project for more background information on Egdar Killen.

Not the Chris Anderton band

A very special cross-post from Auckland’s incomparable Tze Ming Mok.

Known homosexual and racially impure Jeremy Lambert is indignant that he has been let off the hitlist taken out by Redwatch Downunder against “anarchists, reds, homo[s] [and] multiculturalists.” Outrageously, myself and Ahmed Zaoui have also been excluded! Who are these Redwatch people, *racists?*

Careful scrutiny of extremists’ websites can reveal a lot of unintended logistical information that police can use to combat their activities�, said Henderson-Hau, a Sydneysider who is the website’s campaign manager.
