Well-known fascist and bogus historian David ‘Berlin’ Irving is planning to tour the country promoting his racist books. Fixtures are planned for London, Southampton, Exeter and Bristol. See Indymedia here:
Irving’s revisionist view of history is motivated by his rabid anti-Semitism and admiration for Hitler, generally making it up as he goes along. An old friend of Oswald Mosley, he has travelled the world promoting Holocaust denial and inciting racial hatred. His website offers large colour posters of Hitler, bizarre conspiracy theories and a personal vendetta against the Board of Deputies of British Jews.
Irving has been imprisoned in Austria, deported from Canada and banned from entering numerous other countries; on his planned return to Germany after a 10-year ban, the German hoteliers’ trade association have pledged to deny him accommodation. Why the fuck should we put up with him here?
The venues for these gigs are being kept secret for obvious reasons, but someone must know where they are; a room probably no larger than 100 seats in a hotel or pub function room, and booked under a false name as a reading group, history talk or similar.
Residents of our cities have a right to know what is going on in their midst, and take steps to protect themselves from the kind of weirdoes who will be attracted by these events. If you’ve received a booking like this or know someone who has, let us know!
If you have any information regarding the Southampton event (6:30 on Sunday 18th August), please contact Southampton AntiFA. Regarding the other fixtures please pass your suspicions on to Wessex Solidarity or the Anti Fascist Network.
Let’s give this jackboot-licker his marching orders!
