Forum Post: Nazis in Brooklyn

On the night of September 17th, 2013--Occupy Wall Street’s second birthday--more than two dozen men wearing shirts emblazoned with the insignia for the neo-Nazi party “Golden Dawn” surrounded 34 year old Pavlos Fissas, the antifascist rapper known as “Killah P.” A group of police officers stood watching nearby and did nothing, not even when a man jumped out of an approaching car and fatally stabbed Fissas twice in the heart and once in the stomach. This happened in Athens, Greece, but it could happen anywhere that Fascism is allowed to fester.

On Friday, September 20th, the fascist Neo-Folk band Death in June played a show at the Bell House in Brooklyn. The show marks the end of the band’s U.S. tour, which has been met with confrontation and vandalism by committed groups of anti-fascists. Occupy Wall Street stands in solidarity with calls to disrupt the tour, but instead of direct confrontation with fascists and “ironic” hipster scum, we advise everyone reading this to never forgive or forget those spaces that foster fascism.

In Los Angeles, anti-fascists glued the locks of Death in June’s venue. In Salem, MA, the venue that was intending to host the fascist band received so many threats of vandalism that the show was cancelled.

In advance of writing this article we reached out to the venue and its owner through email and voicemail. We never received a response, but the price for tickets was raised.

The Bell House is located at 149 7th St (between 2nd Ave & 3rd Ave), Brooklyn, NY, (Map) it can be reached at (718) 643-6510. Feel free to visit them on Facebook or Twitter. We encourage showing your disapproval of those who allow a voice for fascism through a diverse array of tactics.

For Pavlos.

We can hope that it means an end to fascism in Greece.

The brother of Nikos Mihaloliakos (leader of the GD) is rumored to be recruiting heavily from circles of lawyers, businessmen, and academics—supposedly upstanding professionals who are a little bit too fond of the Greek Junta and the colonels who overthrew the Greek government in 1967.


That's a problem. Simply because the GD may be on the way out but that doesn't mean that they won't look for some other group or some other way.

I fail to see where that was indicated in the body of the OP.

Care to elaborate on how you made that connection?

Or shall I do a search for white supremacist and nazi activities in Texas?

Seems one of your teabagge(R), (R)epelicant's was somehow affiliated

My point is antifa is violent, and I don't condone violence.

You still didn't make the connection. Antifa isn't mentioned in the OP text either.

Are you saying you endorse the Golder Dawn in Greece?

Or do you just endorse when they turn on their own supporters in Texas?
