Key far-right activist Budaházy likely to gain immunity (Hungary)

Radical right-wing activist György Budaházy, in remand for months on charges of terrorism, crimes against the state and vandalism, is likely to escape prosecution, as Jobbik has obtained the required number of nominations to register him as a parliamentary candidate in Budapest's 11th District.

Budaházy may officially become a candidate next week if there are no legal challenges, meaning that criminal proceedings against him will automatically have to be suspended.

His trial in an appeals court on charges of crimes against the state is to begin on April 9.


Stoke-onTrent EDL Demonstration More Arrests (UK)

Detectives from Staffordshire Police have arrested eight more people in connection with crime committed at the English Defence League (EDL) demonstration earlier this year.
The arrests have been made as part of ongoing work by officers from the force’s Major Investigation Department to identify those suspected of being responsible for violence and damage during the EDL demonstration on Saturday 23 January.

DI Tim Martin is managing a dedicated team responsible for investigating crimes committed on the weekend of the EDL demonstration.

In a statement DI Martin said, 'Officers are continuing to review hundreds of hours worth of CCTV and video footage, collate statements and gather any other evidence from the demonstration which will help to identify offenders and put them before the courts.'

He went on to say, 'We arrested 17 people on the day itself and have arrested a further eight. This should serve as a warning to those responsible for committing crime in Stoke-on-Trent that they will be caught. Officers from Staffordshire Police are also working closely with their counterparts at forces across the country to trace suspected offenders who live outside Stoke-on-Trent.'

Italian Jews protest soccer star (Italy)

Italian Jews are protesting an apparent fascist salute given by a player on Rome's Lazio soccer team.

A statement issued by the Jewish Youth Union of Italy called the gesture by Argentina-born Mauro Zarate during a match Sunday between Lazio and Bari "intolerable."
Zarate, who had been suspended from play in Sunday's match because of an on-field incident in an earlier match, was photographed in the stands as he apparently gave the stiff-armed fascist salute along with militant Lazio supporters, who in the past have been known for expressing ultra-right-wing sympathies.

The fascist salute, said Jewish Youth Union president Giuseppe Piperno, "evokes tragic historical periods that culminated in the ways we all know well." The episode, he said, "is all the more serious for the effect it could have on children who look at Zarate as an idol to follow."

Piperno called on Zarate to apologize and for sports authorities to evaluate the situation and take any further appropriate steps.


Explosion at Greek neo-Nazi office (Greece)

An explosion went off Friday at the office of a neo-Nazi group in Athens, Greek police said.

The daily newspaper Eleftherotypia received an anonymous phone call about the explosion 25 minutes beforehand, so the building was evacuated in time and no one was hurt, police said.

It happened at 8:50 a.m. (2:50 a.m. ET) at the fifth-floor office of Chryssi Avghi, a well known group whose name means "golden dawn." It was not known whether the group has been targeted before.

Police said the explosion was not large and that firefighters put out the resulting fire.


Gay soldier Dan Choi chains himself to White House fence (USA)

US Army Lt Dan Choi chained himself to the White House fence on Thursday afternoon to protest over the ban on out gay soldiers.

The Iraq veteran interrupted a rally organised by comedian Kathy Griffin and Human Rights Campaign at Freedom Plaza in Washington DC.
Some reports said he had asked to speak at the rally but his request was rejected, despite him being one of the most profilic faces of the campaign against Don't Ask, Don't Tell.
Robin McGehee, from Get Equal and the co-organiser of the National Equality March, claimed that Lt Choi was rebuffed by HRC president Joe Solmonese, who said the event was "Griffin's rally".

Ms Griffin was filming events for her television series and began a speech with some jokes.

Towleroad.com reports that Lt Choi told Ms Griffin that the issue was "not a joke" and urged the crowd to follow him down Pennsylvania Avenue to the White House.
Around 50 people are estimated to have followed to watch Lt Choi and Captain Jim Pietrangelo chain themselves to the White House fence.

As the crowd chanted "Keep your promise Obama", Secret Service agents put up a barrier around the pair and they were freed and then arrested and bundled into a van.

Ms McGehee was also arrested, although it is not clear why.
Lt Choi is said to have asked Ms Griffin and Mr Solmonese to accompany him to the White House but they did not.
A statement from HRC released later in the afternoon said: "Today more than 1,000 people showed up at a rally – 500 of which signed up to become more involved in the fight to repeal Don't Ask, Don't Tell.

"Joe Solmonese along with Eric Alva and others felt it was important to stay and engage those at the rally in ways they can continue building the pressure needed for repeal.

"This does nothing to diminish the actions taken by Lt Choi and others. This is the nature of social change and everyone has a role to play."

Facebook refuses to install paedophile 'panic button'

Facebook has refused to install the Child Exploitation and Online Protection (Ceop) centre 'panic button' on its page to report suspected paedophiles, but it has vowed to develop its existing system.

The social networking site has been pressured to start the 'panic button' on its pages, after Peter Chapman was convicted for the murder of 17-year-old Ashleigh Hall, whom he lured using Facebook, reports The BBC.
Richard Allan, director of policy for Facebook Europe, said the site did not plan to include the button, as it might be effective in principle "for other sites," but not for Facebook.

Nonetheless, the site has agreed to have links to organisations including the Child Exploitation and Online Protection (Ceop) centre on its reporting pages.
Jim Gamble, head of Ceop, wants the button to be on the front page of every profile page, "so that children are reassured and empowered, so are their parents, and offenders are deterred. That's the key."

Websites such as Bebo are already using the 'panic button'.

Facebook said it was "deeply saddened by the tragic death" of Hall.

Anti-racist Groups Prepare to Counter Neo-Nazi Hate (Canada)

International Day for the Elimination of Racism coming up on March 21 could see a clash between protesters as neo-Nazis plan to rally in Calgary, Vancouver, and Victoria.

According to the Anti Racist Network (ARN), white-supremacist demonstrations are planned for B.C.'s Lower Mainland and Victoria on Sunday, traditionally the International Day for the Elimination of Racism but a day that neo-Nazis have declared White Pride Worldwide Day.

ARN, the activist group No One Is Illegal (NOII), and others are preparing to confront white supremacist groups such as Blood and Honour Canada and Advocates for White Civil Rights with their own counter-rally.
“Several different groups and communities have called for a gathering to let them know they are not welcome and to celebrate our diversity to oppose their hatred and bigotry,” says NOII on its website.

ARN says it expects hundreds to show up in support of multiculturalism.
In Calgary, the neo-Nazi/white pride groups Aryan Guard and White European Bloodlines are also expected to rally. At last year’s event in Calgary, about 500 anti-racists confronted 30 white supremacists, resulting in violence and three arrests.

White pride demonstrations have taken place on this day in Calgary and Toronto in recent years, but observers say gatherings have not occurred in British Columbia for some time.

Anita Bromberg, National Director of Legal Affairs for B’nai Brith Canada, an organization that fights anti-Semitism, racism and bigotry, says members of the Aryan Guard in Ontario seem to have come together and set up in B.C.
“It is unfortunate to see that this kind of open display of intolerance would come to the streets of any place in Canada,” says Bromberg.

“To watch these guys march down the street if you were, for instance, a holocaust survivor—it's a pretty scary moment.”

Bromberg follows and has studied the websites of groups such as the Aryan Guard and Storm Front, and says “a quick perusal would suggest that their attitudes are unfortunately very hurtful if not hateful.”

Aryan Guard founder Kyle Mckee, who was arrested in Winnipeg last December, is charged with two counts of attempted murder in connection with the November bombing that police say targeted residents of a Calgary apartment.

March 21 has been recognized the International Day for the Elimination of Racial Discrimination since 1960 after the massacre of demonstrators demanding an end to apartheid in Sharpesville, South Africa.
It has only been since 2000 that neo-Nazi and white nationalist organizations have claimed March 21st as White Pride Worldwide Day against what they call multi-racial supremacy.

The white pride movement has been growing alongside a burgeoning music business worth over $3.4 million, according to Interpol and the Southern Poverty Law Center.
Ironically, although white power music has been driven underground due to bans throughout Europe, the United States has become a Mecca and haven for the industry due to First Amendment protections.

Power music song lyrics fan feelings of anger, blind rage, and violent tendencies and frequently include exhortations to kill.
“In their view they're a victimized group because as more and more immigrants come into Canada they see their white world fading away,” says Bromberg.

Just last week a man who had been suspended from his job at an Edmonton car dealership for making racial comments walked into his former place of work and opened fire, killing one man and seriously wounding another before turning the gun on himself.
The man, described by his co-workers as a white supremacist, had a swastika tattooed on his body, according to news reports.

The planned activities of neo-Nazi groups have spawned a country-wide network of racism-resistance groups who are firmly countering the aggression.
The Calgary-based One People’s Project: Hate Has Consequences has declared on its website that it plans to confront the racist groups non-violently should they show up.

South of the border, a neo-Nazi group called the Illinois National Socialist Front is planning to march in Chicago on March 21. South Side Chicago Anti-Racist Action is calling for “other groups inside and outside of Chicago to stand with us against fascism” and join in a counter-rally to confront the group.

Bromberg supports the anti-racist groups’ actions, saying the best way to counter white supremacists is to “shine a light on their activities.”

“No one is denying them their pride. What we're denying them is the right to be intolerant, because there is no such right in Canada,” she says.

“We've seen how a belief in the supremacy of the white race once led the world into chaos. We certainly don't want that intolerance here on our streets.”
