(en) Poland, rozbrat.org: Statement - Nationalism will not pass! [machine translation]

Date Wed, 5 Apr 2017 13:06:05 +0300

In the past few years, a wave of nationalism, racism and xenophobia swept across Poland. The development of these ideas, supported by the ruling party, gaining momentum with each passing day. More and more often we hear about attacks on ethnic and religious, every step you can meet someone proclaiming the death of the enemies of the homeland, and antyuchodzcze material appearing in the media have become the norm. In 2015, the number of reported crimes on racial and ethnic increased by 40 percent over the previous year. Their victimizing 954 people, primarily Jews (154 people), Muslims (140 persons) and Roma (123 people). Most of the citizens of our country opposes the presence in Poland of people from Africa, 62 percent unfavorable considers the presence of Arabs and 52 percent do not want the Turks themselves here.

Nationalism is a problem each and every one of us. This is not just a problem of the "other" color, regularly attacked on the streets of cities across the country. Not only foreign students who are in fear of harassment do not go out of their dorms. Not only applies to migrant workers, exploited and treated like slaves by their bosses. Not only the followers of other religions, considered as potential terrorists. Does not concern only women, by conservative uprzedmiotawianych great white Polish fans, who strengthen the inhumane ruling ideas, such as the tightening of anti-abortion laws or restricting access to contraception, sex education and prenatal care. It applies to any person who in any way different from the nationalist ideals of the "Polish patriot" and "Polish Mother". Nationalism is always connected with chauvinism, racism, fascism, homophobia and other forms of exclusion, violence and exploitation, and faith in his "positive impression" is the belief in a lie consistently built to powdering the true face of nationalists.

Nationalism is the ideology of serving the rich, enabling them to use the poor to get rich even more. Nationalism fosters divisions and hierarchies between people and method of management of divide and conquer. Students, employees or retirees are beginning to act against each other, not against the government, and others who are responsible for their basic problems - poverty, violence, exploitation, quality of education and limited access to it.

Nationalism is building a false image of the past, creating propaganda myths "Soldiers accursed" - throwing one set all, of the victims of the communist regime after common criminals murdering women and children. The Conservative government a picture of the past is apparently needed because dismisses the possibility of an honest debate about both past and talk about the present. The public is fed with myths and subsequent historical anniversaries. People have just mindlessly singing hymns learned and repeated slogans. Radical nationalist and fascist organizations well find themselves in just such a reality - to beat and not think for themselves.

Hate parade organized by the All-Polish Youth brown militias in Poznan is just one example of insolence and ignorance lovers "soldiers accursed." The organization co-responsible for the introduction of the ghettos lawkowych universities in the thirties has no right to rely on the ethos of the university, has no right to intimidate students and university staff, and even more have no right to attack and destroy the defenseless people built their initiatives.

We will not passively observe the racist and nationalist aggression! We oppose turning the representatives of nationalist parties openly to the public debate! We do not discuss the racists! We oppose this hateful ideology! Only breaking national limitations, we will be able to build equal and just society.

Nationalism does not pass!
