German patriots who are being persecuted in that country because of their desire to prevent Germany from being overrun by the Third World immigration invasion, appear to be taking the example set by the Solidarity Trade union in this country, and are at last organising intelligently to counter leftist bullying tactics.
According to an article in the German news magazine, Der Spiegel, the latest move in Germany has come about after two young women lost their jobs because they took part in a National Democratic Party (NDP) rally. They have since formed a group to help other politically persecuted women.
Iris Niemeyer told Der Spiegel that she feels angry, betrayed and persecuted. In her mid-30s, educated and articulate, Niemeyer is furious about having lost her job as a social worker because of her political beliefs. She is so appalled that she has set up a group to defend women in similar situations.
Sigrid Schüssler is a trained actress from Karlstein-am-Main in Bavaria, who had been organising children's plays at daycare centers, schools and festivals — and at NPD events. A local left-wing group started to distribute flyers accusing her of having racist undertones in a show where she enacts the Brothers Grimm fairytale about a frog.
Schüssler says that as soon as her booked appearances were publicised, they were cancelled within two days. She says her business is now effectively “dead.” “I am a complete victim. I was accused of indoctrinating children, something that is totally out of keeping with the way I do things, with my convictions, with my beliefs.”
Together with Schüssler, Niemeyer has set up the women's self-help group Jeanne D. ‘The group is open to all women who have a nationalist, patriotic world view,' Niemeyer said. “Those very women who are currently facing fierce persecution.”
In Niemeyer's case this ‘persecution' arose when she lost her job at a youth center in the village of Mesum in the western state of North Rhine-Westphalia last year. According to Matthias Fischer, one of her former colleagues, the center received an e-mail on Oct. 26, 2007, with a photograph Niemeyer at a NPD rally and at an information stand for its affiliated women's organization Ring Nationaler Frauen (Ring of Nationalist Women or RNF).”
It was Schüssler who came up with name Jeanne D., a reference to the Joan of Arc depicted in Schiller's play of the same name. “She was a woman who felt called to free her country and that is also something close to our hearts,” Schüssler says.
While Schüssler emphasises the emotional support that the group can provide women, allowing them to exchange ideas and experiences, and even offering alternative remedies and meditation, Niemeyer is the more political of the two. She says Jeanne D. plans to document and archive instances of persecution, and help women who have lost their jobs or been otherwise persecuted gain access to legal advice. “Many women don't know where to look for help, or how to defend themselves,” says Niemeyer.
The group is already attracting members and has even had the first enquiries from abroad — a woman in Austria contacted them recently wanting to join. “I am now trying to get funding at a state level and from the European Union,” Niemeyer says. The group hopes eventually to provide financial support to women who have lost their jobs or income due to their beliefs.
Meanwhile, back here in Britain, the independent nationalist trade union Solidarity continues to grow, and will again be represented at the BNP's Red-White-and-Blue Family Festival.
Solidarity is at present fighting a number of cases on behalf of BNP members who have become the victims of politically-motivated persecution. There are already many cases, which a few years ago, would have led to patriots losing their jobs, but which are now being resolved satisfactorily.
This aspect of our fight for freedom is still in its early stages but, in Britain as well as in other European countries, nationalists are organising to secure their rights.
