The rise of votes of fascist, neonazi and racist parties in the elections for the European Parliament of May 2014 in countries such as France, the UK, Greece underlines the urgent need to escalate the struggle to stop the fascist threat and put an end to the racist policies of fortress Europe. To end the concentration camps, the closure of the borders that spawned the horror of hundreds drowned refugees from Lambedusa to Pharmaconisi in the Aegean sea.


The political crisis, with governments imposing austerity measures spreading poverty, unemployment and despair, opens the door to neo-Nazis. Governments with racist campaigns against migrants, refuges and Roma, islamophobia, anti-Semitism and homophobia are trying to convert them into scapegoats for their failures, fueling the rise of fascist xenophobic and racist parties.

Continuing the successful days of action against racism and fascism on January 19th, 2013 and March 22nd, 2014, we call for a new international mobilization on March 21, 2015. We can send a strong message that 70 years after the end of World War II the cry NEVER AGAIN is more timely than ever.

A mass antifascist movement begets hope that we can stop them! This is the movement that fights for the punishment of neonazi murderers of Shehzad Loukman and Paulos Fyssas in Greece and now demands that the trial of neo-Nazi Golden Dawn will start soon. We have stood in solidarity with immigrant workers in the strawberry fields of N. Manolada and we fight for their rights to stay here and join the trade unions.

Join us on the streets on the international day of action against fascism and racism on 21st of March 2015.
