Neo-nazi Movement Only 100 Signatures Away from Becoming Political Party

The Patria Nueva Sociedad (PNS), or Homeland New Society, neo-nazi movement only needs 100 signatures to become a constitutionally recognized political party. In August they will table in downtown Santiago to gather the necessary signatures as the Constitutional Court rejected the motion to declare the movement unconstitutional.

“We are planning to go downtown, to Paseo Ahumada, so we’ve made a request to the municipality,” PNS leader told online magazine Acción Chilena.

Alexis López, president of PNS said they already have about 40 of the 100 signatures they lack. Apart from these, the group already has seven thousand members.

The 2006 appeal to the Constitutional Court to outlaw this group was unsuccessful, according to a a ruling issued last month. In that appeal parliamentarians, the Homosexual Liberation Movement (Movilh) as well as the Jewish Youth group accused this movement of various neo-nazi attacks from 2002 to 2006.

But the group hopes to be a regional party before going national. They hope to focus in Arica, Iquique, Antofagasta, Araucanía, Valdivia, Osorno and Aysén. The minimum number of signatures required by region is at least 0.5 percent of the electorate who cast ballots in the last deputy election. In Santiago, for example, that would total about 12 thousand signatures.

If they do become a party, it would most probably be marginalized since National Socialist groups around the world are usually cut from the electoral map. But with regards to criticism López does not worry much and calls them prejudice. “To have people who oppose… is part of the democratic game,” he said. He also distances himself from other Nazi groups who are known for violent attacks. “We don’t want to be related to them. They have even attacked us for being traitors.”
