Czech Police recommend prosecuting woman who wore Nazi swastikas for supporting a movement to suppress human rights

Detectives in Prague have recommended prosecuting a 47-year-old woman who attended a demonstration by the "Freedom and Direct Democracy" (SPD) movement in April on Wenceslas Square because she did so wearing a chain with many Nazi swastikas and other symbols of Nazi Germany.

Czech Television received the news from Jan Daněk, spokesperson for the police in the Czech capital.

The woman, police believe, committed the crime of showing sympathy for a movement to suppress human rights and freedoms by wearing the symbols; if convicted, she faces up to three years in prison.

"Detectives from the Prague 1 police precinct completed their investigation of the case of the 47-year-old woman and filed a motion with the Prague 1 prosecutor's office to prosecute her for felony display of sympathy for movements aiming to suppress human rights and freedoms," Daněk said.

The SPD convened the demonstration against what they called the "dictatorship of the European Union" on the afternoon of 25 April to launch their campaign for the European Parliament. CCTV cameras not only captured the woman wearing the chain with the Nazi German swastikas, but another demonstrator giving the Nazi salute.

The man who did so, 34-year-old Radek Mansfeld, has been give a six-month suspended sentence and was fined CZK 30 000 - 1.200 euro. The verdict has yet to take effect because he appealed.

Roma integration in Lithuania

For the 2014-2020 period, Lithuania will be allocated a total of €6.8 billion in EU funds, out of which €4.7 billion will come from the European Social Fund (ESF) and the European Regional Development Fund (ERDF).

Of this amount, at least 24.2% will be spent on the ESF, with at least 20% of that going towards the promotion of social inclusion and combating poverty. The latter amount could also finance Roma-related measures.

The Council of Europe estimates that there are approximately 3,000 Roma livingin Lithuania (0.08% of the population).

Lithuania’s strategy also aims at increasing public tolerance through intercultural dialogue.
Lithuania’s ational Roma integration strategy (action plan) is aimed at promoting the participation of the Roma in public life, reducing social exclusion, enhancing self-awareness in the Roma community as well as increasing tolerance towards the Roma.

Romani people in fiction

Many fictional depictions of the Romani in literature and art present Romanticized narratives of their supposed mystical powers of fortune telling, and their supposed irascible or passionate temper paired with an indomitable love of freedom and a habit of criminality.

Critics of how Romani people have been portrayed in popular culture point out similarities to portrayals of Jewish people, with both groups stereotyped negatively as wandering, spreading disease, abducting children, and violating and murdering others.

Romani people were portrayed in Victorian and modern British literature as having "sinister occult and criminal tendencies"and as associated with "thievery and cunning", and in English Renaissance and baroque theatre as incorporating "elements of outlandish charm and elements which depict [them] as the lowest of social outcasts," connected with "magic and charms," and "juggling and cozening."

 In opera, literature and music, throughout Europe, Romani women have been portrayed as provocative, sexually available, gaudy, exotic and mysterious. 

Hollywood and European movies, as well as popular music and other forms of pop culture, have promoted similar stereotypes


Personal view - "Keeping the people in misery and ignorance is the worst form of violence" Mahatma Gandhi

One of the key problems in our society is the violence that has determined the fate of many over the last three decades. but also for future generations. It is mostly used by those in positions. Unfortunately, violence has also become a legitimate form of behavior and confrontation with dissenters and people who do not want to submit to those in position.
One of those who have best embraced structural violence is Mahatma Ganda who said: "Keeping people in misery and ignorance is the worst form of violence"

And this is exactly what is happening to our people.
Structural violence is a form of violence where the state. they make society insufficient and adequate with sufficient conditions for every person and society. . When referring to the state and society, the justice system refers to state institutions. NGOs, trade unions, etc.
They all have a kind of acting position. It's actually the following:

1. They do not enforce laws at any level and are brought as if the world had begun since they were in power, and that they use the regulations when it suits them, discriminate, disregard procedures, etc.
2. The government does not change laws that discriminate against individuals or groups, or make new ones where people are treated unequally.
3. The government makes laws that meet their needs, not the needs of the citizens.
4. The government adopts laws and enforces procedures where it manipulates the public with confidential information and paints a false picture of well-being or the danger of depending on their needs.
5. The government does not do enough to stop or punish any form of violence and discrimination.
6. The government does not provide an equal opportunity environment for all. Most do not care about minorities, but only satisfy their needs.
7. Some individuals become legitimate and legal without having to bear any responsibility or guilt.

This is just a small fraction of the examples listed to illustrate the perception of such a way of functioning. What they can promise us is that they will fight by all means to put an end to all forms of violence, that the voice of the discriminated, the minority, and the marginalized will be heard, which no one comes to when they need it most.

Definitely not all of us as ordinary people will be hurt if we are victims of those who are open enemies to us. You cannot expect a friendly relationship from them. But it really hurts people that you have given them the confidence to lead us and treat their people as their greatest enemy, all in the name of self-interest.
