In Australia, a small number of Serbian fans attending the Australia v Serbia match on June 7 unfurled banners exonerating accused war criminal Ratko Mladic.

In Canada, two members of the Western European Brotherhood (aka the White European Brotherhood/White European Bloodline or WEB), Robert David Reitmeier and Tyler William Sturrup, have been arrested and charged with the murder in October 2010 of Mark Mariani. Anti-Racist Canada blog has heaps more on the Canuckistanian nutzis.

The WEB split from the ‘Aryan Guard’ several years ago; both groups have participated in various ‘White Pride World Wide Day’ activities, an annual event with origins in the Australian neo-Nazi milieu and also celebrated by nutzis in New Zealand organised under Kyle Chapman‘s various banners.

In Russia, another neo-Nazi activist, Darya Tikhanova, has been arrested and charged with taking part in the murder of a Dagestani man in Moscow in June 2007. Also in Moscow, Peter Tatchell writes on the repression of the 2011 Gay Pride march: “Either the police were actively facilitating the right-wing extremists with transport to the protest or many of the neo-Nazis were actually plainclothes police officers. They did to us what their uniformed colleagues dared not do in front of the world’s media: give many of us a good beating.”

In the UK, occult publisher ‘Scarlet Imprint’ has issued a statement on ‘Occultists and Fascists’ (June 10, 2011), distancing them from fascist bizarro and ‘national anarchist’ Troy Southgate.

We were approached recently to contribute to Troy Southgate’s Black Front Press whose last published work was a Crowley anthology.

After a little research, we were disturbed to find their rather murky history hidden beneath the anti-corporate, anti-capitalist and permaculture ideals.

Though we are very happy to promote the independent esoteric and occult authors and publishers whose work and dedication invigorate and stimulate our community, it is entirely another matter to contribute our energy to a project which would seem to be attempting to use a multiplicity of voices from the occult scene to promote the ideas of the so-called New-Right.

Whether or not you’ve noticed, you can learn more about this recent strategy of certain factions of the neo-Nazi movement from the following analysis.

Also in the UK, Andrew Brons is challenging Nick Gri££in to become leader of the British National Party as the BNP gets ready to rumble (Nick Lowles, June 11, 2011).

I live in Melbourne, Australia. I like anarchy. I don't like nazis. I enjoy eating pizza and drinking beer. I barrack for the greatest football team on Earth: Collingwood Magpies. The 2020 premiership's a cakewalk for the good old Collingwood.
