BIS: Far-right extremist scene stagnates (Czech Republic)

 The activities of right-wing extremists have been stagnating in the Czech Republic lately, the civilian counter- intelligence service (BIS) says in its report for the third quarter of 2010 released on its website these days.

BIS says extremists have become passive and they practically do not stage their concerts any longer as they have partially lost their platform and feared repressions.

Internal debates about the ultra-right community's further heading are underway, BIS adds.

"If they decided to organise a meeting, it was usually a private celebration with recorded music," BIS says, describing the activities of Czech racists and neo-Nazis.

The only larger event they organised was a traditional march in support of the imprisoned skinhead Vlastimil Pechanec, held in Svitavy, east Bohemia, on July 24, 2010 with some 200 people attending, the report says.

Czech neo-Nazism followers prefer attending big concerts in Poland and Hungary where these events do not draw so high attention of the police and media as in the Czech Republic.

BIS notes that rightist extremists have communicated mainly on the Internet. Profiles of several new local extremist groupings have appeared on web social networks but these groups have been working rather virtually so far.

Polemics about the future course continue on the ultra-right scene, BIS report says.

"The conservative core and younger activists who promote new trends and ways of promotion have clashed in this dispute," the BIS report says.

The steps by the extremist Workers' Party of Social Justice (DSSS), successor to the banned Workers' Party (DS), have significantly influenced the developments of the extremist scene.

The DSSS tried to present itself as an ultra-right but not extremist political party and this is why it was intentionally getting rid of neo-Nazis.

In connection with the recent local and Senate elections, the DSS organised rallies at many places in the Czech Republic but they attracted a negligible number of citizens, BIS says.

The party led an intensive campaign mainly in the municipalities that face problems of cohabitation with ethnic minorities where it expected to score success in the elections to local assemblies, BIS writes.

However, the DSSS still suffers from internal disputes, it adds.

According to BIS, the Czech leftist extremist scene has not significantly changed in the past three months, its supporters keep protesting against capitalism and criticising the centre-right government's austerity measures to revitalise public finance.
