Say No to nazis Charlotte NC

Only a quick post today. I'm busy editing part of the S.H.A.R.P. book (yes, the history articles about Antifa, AFA, ARA are still coming) but this caught my attention. November 10th is coming up. 

Feel free to do as the flyer suggests. Nothing wrong with a little friendly e-mail or phone call letting them know your honest opinion.

Okay, back to editing the S.H.A.R.P. book (still accepting submissions of flyers, art work, clippings, photos from all over the world).

The S.H.A.R.P. Book

Now as some of you out there know I write for more than just The S.H.A.R.P. Blog. If you didn't know that, guess what? I write for more than just this blog. One of the things that I have been working on over the past year is a book on S.H.A.R.P. that should be finished in the new year (provided 2012 does not kill us all by having dinosaurs rise from the grave).

One thing I'd like to do in this little book is have some photos from S.H.A.R.P. all over the world in it. Crews, individuals, guys and gals. Did you hold an event with a cool flyer? Did you design a cool little S.H.A.R.P. graphic? Send them in (the e-mail is in the contact section on the top of the blog, or if you are lazy, press HERE). The best of the best will be published in the book. All credit will be given for your work.

The S.H.A.R.P. Book will be available as an e-book (Kobo, Kindle, Nook, iPad, I got mad skills and it can be read on all), and as a limited edition highly collectable, savagely murdered tree version (take THAT political crust punks!).

Coming up next week, some history on ARA, Antifa, and AFA, because there seems to be some confusion with some of the younger kids out there about them.

What do neo-nazis put on their luftwaffles? Golden Dawn!

So some people over the past little while have been asking me who Golden Dawn are, and what does fascism have to do with Canadian butter products (see last post)?

As far as the butter goes, nothing at all. I was just making fun of their name. I do that sometimes.

Golden Dawn is an extreme right-wing party operating out of Greece.

Their flag (known as the Meandros Flag) is coloured and based on the National Socialist flag in both colour and design.

Golden Dawn was formed in 1985 by a man named Nikolaos Michaloliakos (dishonourably discharged from the Greek reserves) and some of his friends/supporters after he broke away from the National Political Union (aka the EPEN, another far right Greek political party). Golden Dawn was officially recognized as a political party in 1993.

Golden Dawn has street gangs that have been known for their bloody attacks on immigrants in Greece. Golden Dawn carry out immigration checks, stopping people and making sure they are Greek Nationals.

What has this got to do with Canada you ask? Well to be honest almost nothing... Except that Golden Dawn operates here too.

 Montreal Quebec has seen Golden Dawn become increasingly active with "charity" fundraising events. In an alarming number of Canadian (American as well) cities with a higher Greek population you can find people trying to organize Golden Dawn chapters.

There is a petition out of Montreal against Golden dawn that you can sign HERE

The Americans just had a public meeting about them.

Golden Dawn is bad news.

When I hear your name I think of butter

I simply can not take a neo-nazi group seriously when they are named after butter (Okay they are not actually named after this brand of butter, but it was that or make a Golden Shower joke).

For an article on Golden Dawn, check back here tomorrow.

I agree with the racists who don't want immigrants living on their street.

I have decided that I agree with the racists who do not want immigrants to live on their street. I want those racists to have their all white Christian areas. Because I want the immigrants, from all over the world, to move into mine.

Eastern European, south Asian, African, Indian, Jewish, Muslim, Orthodox, Hindu, Buddhist... I don't care what your native tongue is. I don't care how well you speak English. Please move into my area. Move across the street from me. Move into the buildings next to mine. Move next door to me. Say hello to me when I walk past you, I'll say it back. Just please please please promise to open up shops that sell your food. Please play the music you grew up with. And please remember to invite me over for lunch every once in a while. For those who do you will be gladly welcomed into my Hallway Pub for a pint. Or if you don't drink alcohol, I'll try to figure out some tasty booze free drinks for you.

Damn I feel so sorry for people who are so closed minded that they can't enjoy the different tastes that the world offers. People whose life is so closed off that they can't enjoy the melody of a song that is being sung in a language that they do not speak.

You can have children of any colour you want. You can eat any food you want, watch any shows you like, and listen to any style of music you enjoy. But I've got to tell you, I love having the freedom to decide for myself what I like and what I don't. If I find something I don't like, I won't eat/listen to/ watch/ it again.

The best part of life is actually living it to its fullest. I have no idea what I'm about to eat. I have no idea what the woman who sold it to me called it. She either was speaking in a heavy accent or in her native tongue. All I know is she liked that I was willing to try it, and she gave me what can only be described as a large looking muffin thing with spices in it to dip it in. God bless her, I'll be back again next week to see what else I can find to try!

Activists Part II

I've been seeing this little quote (and variations of) on Facebook a lot lately on a bunch of politically active people's profiles. Just for the record, it has ZERO power. When you joined Facebook, you clicked agree on the terms and conditions and all that lot. You do not have the power to suddenly change your user

Sorry, but it is just not going to work. It also makes you look sort of silly. Don't just take my word for it though, please feel free to do a little research on the topic.
