Hundreds march in Latvia to commemorate SS unit

March participants honoring countrymen who fought in German combat unit during WWII sing patriotic songs, wave Latvian flags. Protesters chant 'Disgrace!' and 'Hitler is dead!'' in Russian, blow whistles to drown out singing

Thousands marched through the Latvian capital Sunday under heavy police protection to honor countrymen who fought in a German combat unit during World War II.

Protesters jeered as the procession of some 3,000 people - a few surviving members of the Waffen SS unit known as the Latvian Legion among them - arrived at the Freedom Monument in downtown Riga.

March participants sang patriotic songs and waved Latvian flags before laying roses at the base of the monument as protesters chanted "Disgrace!'' and "Hitler is dead!'' in Russian and blew whistles to drown out the singing.

Thousands of police deployed to prevent unrest kept the two sides apart. No violence was reported.

Soviet forces occupied the Baltic states of Latvia, Lithuania and Estonia in June 1940, but were driven out by the Germans a year later. The Red Army retook the Baltics in 1944, and reincorporated them into the Soviet Union.

About 250,000 Latvians ended up fighting alongside either the Germans or the Soviets in World War II -- and some 150,000 Latvians died in the fighting.

Default Mussolini is one of the official heroes of Latvia

Benito Mussolini is one of the official heroes of Latvia, said Sergey Malakhovskiy, the member of the Antifascist Committee of Latvia during the press conference in Moscow on March, 12, reports a REGNUM correspondent.

According to Malakhovskiy, the name of Mussolini is among other names lettered at the plaques in the “pantheon of Latvian heroes”. In reply to the request of REGNUM correspondent to detail about the “pantheon” and what attitude toward nowdays Latvia has the Italian dictator, the member of the Latvian Anti-fascist Committee said: "Pantheon of Latvian heroes is a Memorial Complex in the Fraternal Cemetery in Riga, where at the memorial plaques are lettered the names of chevaliers of the Order of Lacplesis — the highest military award of Latvia. In due course, the Order was awarded to some leaders of states, participants of World War II being allies of Germany. I am not aware if Hitler had been awarded by the Order, but Mussolini was awarded in 1925. His name is in the plaque. And like this Benito Mussolini is caught in the circle of the heroes of Latvia, — said Sergey Malakhovsky.

As informed REGNUM earlier, the minister of culture of Latvia considers average the perpetuation of memory of Benito Mussolini at the main memorial complex of the country. “More dangerous is the Victory Monument in the center of Riga”, -said Helena Demakova, Latvian Culture Minister. According to her, it would be necessary to demolish the Victory Monument in Riga and after it Latvian Shooters Monument, because these objects “mangle the historical truth”. "It is the best glorification of the criminal regimes, than looking for the names of Mussolini and Weiss at the cemetery with magniglass”.

It is worth mentioning that there are memorial plaques of chevaliers of the Order of Lacplesis at the Memorial Complex of the Fraternal Cemetery in Riga. The name of Fascist dictator Benito Mussolini is among other names lettered at these plaques. The central grave sites the memorial of general-lieutenant of SS troops Gruppenführer Rudolf Bangerskis and one of the operators of mass shootings of civilians in 1941-1942 Voldemars Weiss.

It WAS in 1925 - and it's clear and obvious that in this time - Mussolini was ordinary dictator.

City Council bans Legionnaires Day events

http://www.baltictimes.com/news/articles/25039/

RIGA -- The Riga City Council has introduced a complete ban on events surrounding the Freedom Monument during this year's Legionnaires Day, which takes place on March 16.

The day has previously been used by former soldiers from the Latvian Legion to remember their fellow warriors who fell during the second World War. The Latvian Legion fought against Soviet forces on the side of Nazi Germany.

The former soldiers have in the past marked the day by laying wreaths of flowers at the Freedom Monument.

A demonstration is usually organized by various pro-Russian organizations against the ceremony, which they consider as tacit support for the Nazi regime.

Last year about 13 people protesting the event were detained by police. Some members of the demonstration were seen unfurling a Communist flag - a banned symbol in Latvia.

The ban comes during the city's first stint with with a pre-Russian rights party at the helm of the City Council.

A total of 140,000 people were called up to form the Latvian Legion and about 50,000 of them died in the war or deportations following the restoration of Soviet rule in Latvia.

In 1950 Washington published a declaration about Baltic SS legions having being special units to be distinguished from other German SS troops and not regarded as movements harmful to the United States government.

I wish we had laws like that, (hate speech, public display, holocaust denial,...etc, etc).
Thousands of us could intentionally violate such laws and force ZOG prosecutors to have to deal with us.
We could tie up the court system for years and frustrate the hell out of judges, politicians, and bureaucrats.

Hundreds in Latvia commemorate Waffen SS units

http://www.etaiwannews.com/etn/news_...&lang=eng_news

2010-03-16 08:00 PM

About 1,000 people have honored Latvians who were killed fighting on the side of Nazi Germany during World War II.

Hundreds of police kept dozens of angry ethnic Russian protesters at bay during the annual march commemorating Latvia's Waffen SS divisions.

Participants laid flowers and sang patriotic songs at the Freedom Monument in downtown Riga, while protesters waved banners with gruesome pictures of the Holocaust and shouted insults.

Latvians who take part in the annual procession claim they want to commemorate compatriots killed in the war, while ethnic Russian protesters accuse them of whitewashing history and having Nazi sympathies. Police said there was no violence at Tuesday's procession.

Latvian Foreign Minister Rinkevics ‘Proud to be Gay’

(AGI/EFE) Moscow, Nov 7 — Latvian foreign minister Edgars Rinkevics on Friday announced that he is gay in a tweet posted in English. “I proudly announce I am gay… good luck all of you,” the 41-year-old wrote. “Our country has to create a legal status for all kinds of partner relationships,” he added. The announcement was praised by the country’s president, Toomas Hendrik Ilves, who described Rinkevics as “a brave man and a good foreign minister.”

A Latvian MP has been forced resign her position in the ruling party leadership after sparking a scandal with gay-hating comments she published on Twitter.

Inga Priede landed in hot water after crossing the line in an online debate with fellow Unity party members on the possible legislation of same-sex partnerships.

The issue of gay rights is a hot topic in Latvia after last week’s coming out by Foreign Minister Edgars Rinkēvičs and a similar move by UK’s Charge d’Affaires in Riga, Iain Frew.

Priede stated that all Latvian countryfolk are “in shock” after learning about the draft law and rural gays “are not proud” of their sexual orientation “because there are basic values.”

She went further, tweeting: “Thank God! The Germans shot them in their time. Was good for demographics,” an apparent reference to the Nazi Germans’ campaign to “improve the nation” through the extermination of citizens deemed unfit to be part of it, including homosexuals.

A freight train carrying a whole column of American armored vehicles has been caught on camera in Latvia. Dalbe Railway Station, where the train was reportedly spotted several days ago, is less than 300km from the Russian border.

The train was carrying at least 38 vehicles and several semitrailers, including eight Bradley Fighting Vehicles, nine M113 Armored Personnel Carriers (APCs), four petrol tankers, Heavy Expanded Mobility Tactical Trucks (HEMTTs), High Mobility Multipurpose Wheeled Vehicles (HMMWVs), an M88 Hercules Armory recovery vehicle, a couple of trucks, some tactical engineering and medical vehicles, at least four containers and a pair of railcars with ammunition.

Latvian Foreign Minister Edgars Rinkevics says that Riga is seeking EU funding in order to launch a Russian-language television network for Russian speakers in his country and the region so that they will not turn to Moscow channels that are full of misinformation and anti-Western propaganda.

The new channel, he says, will feature not only news but also entertainment programming because “people do not need news 24 hours a day.” That reflects his understanding that people often watch news on the same channels they get their entertainment – which is one of the advantages Moscow TV now has over Western outlets which broadcast only news.

Rinkevics adds that Latvia is prepared to work with neighboring countries and with the European Union on the service and is quite prepared to have it operate under EU direction. Estonia is a potential partner in this: its parliament recently approved 2.5 million euros (US $3 million) to start such a television channel next September.

These Latvian and Estonian initiatives reflect the increasing understanding of governments there and elsewhere in the region that Moscow has used its advantages in television broadcasting to shape opinion among Russian speakers in neighboring countries who in many cases prefer Russian television to national competitors.

Since the disintegration of the Soviet Union, the post-Soviet states have put most of their effort into producing non-Russian language broadcasts, and at least some of them, the Balts in the first instance, have been reluctant for national reasons to produce massive amounts of programming in what they still reasonably view as the “imperial” language.”

But Moscow’s success in forming opinion in Ukraine via its television broadcasts has prompted them to change their minds and to recognize that the problem is not the language of broadcasts but their content. Russian-language programming can be accurate, informative, and supportive of the independence of their countries, even if Moscow TV now is anything but.

jewsign 21 Lost Latvia Synagogues Recreated as Scale Models

Quote:
RIGA — Decades after their destruction by the Nazis, Latvia’s lost synagogues have been recreated in detailed model form as part of efforts to recapture and document the once-rich Jewish life in the Baltic country.

There were 210 synagogues in Latvia before World War Two, with styles ranging from ornate neo-Renaissance and neo-Romanesque buildings to humble wooden structures.

Thumbs up Latvians are waking up to the Jewish menace

Quote:
Latvia’s Antisemitism is a ghost that makes European headlines every March. This week, a Latvian MP of the ruling coalition bloc, Kārlis Seržants, was on the record on Tuesday, March 15, making profoundly anti-Semitic comments.

In an interview with the Russian language public radio LR4, he said that “clever Jews” were responsible for some of the nation’s main problems. Clever Jews who operate “on the edge of the law,” referring to prominent Russian minority activists who, he believes, are Jewish. “I am not a chauvinist, absolutely not,” he specified “and “that is exactly why I am telling that being of Jewish ethnicity means being very smart.” While Russians might also be smart, he specified that Jews are “especially smart.”

Nationalist party wants to make March 16 an official memorial day

The right-of-center National Alliance wants to make March 16, the controversial date when parades are staged to honor the Latvian Waffen-SS divisions, into an official memorial day, party head Raivis Dzintars told LTV March 8.

"We shouldn't be ashamed to honor Latvian freedom fighters," said Dzintars, after saying that, for a time in the 90s, March 16 was indeed a memorial day.

The party intends to submit amendments to the official calendar to the Latvian parliament within the next few days.
