GUEST,ifor Folk Against Fascism launch at Sidmouth (335* d) RE: Folk Against Fascism launch at Sidmouth 19 Aug 09


In 1929 Hitlers Nazi Party is the smallest in the Reichstag. Four years later he had taken power and the first thing he did was to lock up or terrorise his parliamentary opponents and then begin the process of dismantling the organisations of German society and its working class in particular.

It was a catastrophe that was directly to lead to the slaughter of many millions. Something that Griffin was to mock and deny.

We certainly can't allow a bunch of Hitler loving thugs to grow unopposed in this country.We have the lesson of history to warn and guide us!Griffin and Brons are two openly racist and fascist MEPs.Part of Griffin's plan is to use the symbolism of English culture [including folk song,dance and customs ] to develop support for his thuggish cadre.

Hence the formation of Folk Against Fascism.On his side he has got the old nazi marching songs while we have the songs of Ewan McColl,Hamish Henderson, Woody Guthrie, Paul Robeson, and so many more. I was told that one of the songs that the anti fascists sang at Codnor on saturday was an adapation of Yellow Submarine..now there is a song being assimilated into the folk tradition!
