Op 4 May 2016 8 PM stands Netherlands two minutes of silence, commemorates the Shoah and the dead from World War II. In Leiden this commemoration was an especially witty character with an equally nasty and provocative contribution of the right-wing extremists of Identitair Resistance.
Identitair Resistance had apparently been officially reported to the Leiden Memorial Day and was therefore on the evening of 4 May invited by the master of ceremonies to lay a wreath along with the church and other civil society organizations. However, the Identitair Resistance wreath was adorned with a ribbon that says "No more, Brother War '. This call is a well-known international battle cry ('Never again fratricidal war', ‘No more brother wars’) from the neo-Nazi circuit. The scope of this slogan is that World War II has not begun by Hitler's Germany, but was the result of a Jewish conspiracy to take the European brotherly nations against each other. With the result that the European 'Aryan brother nations "fought each other and not together against the real enemy, the Jews, pulled at war.
Remembrance Day and Liberation Day, 4 en 5 May, have since 1945 difficult days for the extreme right in order to deal. The end of the Nazi and fascist dictatorships in Europe. The beginning of the criminal settlement with collaborationist National Socialists. And the start of decades of social isolation of the extreme right-wing political ideologies, National Socialism and Fascism, at the root of this war, stood oppression and mass murder.
4 en 5 May, normally not the days when far-right groups commemorate their dead and war history. There they choose other occasions for. There have been recent decades regularly kill commemorations large war cemeteries where their "own’ heroes of the extreme right are buried, SS’ers, Wehrmacht soldiers en collaborerende Nederlanders. In addition, memorial services are held on a historically significant dates, such as the birthday of Hitler (20 april) and the day of the failed bierkeller Putsch (9 november).
But on 4 en 5 May keep themselves right-wing extremists are almost always low profile. Almost always, because in recent years have been a number of right-wing extremist actions, in particular the purpose of commemoration was uttered provocations.
In 1985 was the Dutch People's Union (NVU), our knowledge, the first far-right organization that 4 of May, a provocative action. In Rotterdam were distributed on that day leaflets which called for rehabilitation of NSB leader Mussert.
The members of the NCE and the Netherlands Youth Front (JFN) who spread leaflets wore for the occasion black shirts, a reference to their political identity. In 1986 JFN repeated this action in Arnhem. They again shared pro-Mussert leaflets and pamphlets also posted this on the walls of the square where later would find on the day of the commemoration place.
But more recently, left-wing extremist organizations Remembrance Day and Liberation is not always silently ignore.
In 2005 organized Paul Peters, behalf Outpost, and in collaboration with a group of local young right-wing extremists of the Soetermeer Skinhead Front (SSF) a meeting in Zoetermeer 5 spring under the slogan '60 years of occupation '. They suggested that, that 5 May 1945 the start of an occupancy was, instead of the end. Paul Peters is also the founder of Identitair Resistance, after he 2012 from Outpost stepped.
In 2006 daub some young neo-Nazis on 4 May, the war memorial in the village of Klaaswaal, where the commemoration took place before. They painted a swastika and neo-Nazi slogan "Wir sind Zurück’ and threw wreaths that were laid out on the ground. The main culprit of this destruction, Karl-Jan Walle, in recent years one of the leaders of the Free Nationalists Brabant (VNNB).
In 2007 posted nazis in Zwolle many stickers with extremist messages on 5 May. On their website, the group stated that it was a protest against Liberation. They want to put an end to the 'since 5 May 1945 long American-Zionist occupation ".
In 2009 disrupted a group Blood & Honour related neo-Nazis, the commemoration in Winschoten with noise and ringtones. They argued that this was a protest, because they themselves can not remember the SS.
Op 4 May 2014 spreads the VNNB in Den Bosch pamphlets against the "Zionist oppression of the Palestinian people’ with the slogan "Stop the Palestinian Holocaust!’.
In anticipation 4 May 2016 same VNNB published a call on its website not to participate in the two-minute silence. In that article the author stated: "The Dutch perspective on the Second World War is one of distress and shortsightedness. The Second World War did not start in 1 September the regional conflict between Poland and Germany, but on 3 september, when the Anglo-French declaration of war the second imperialist world war against (using the Versailles diktat) oppressed German people unleashed!’
In this tradition of tawdry neo-Nazi provocations should henceforth be called Identitair Resistance.
