"Crystal Night – Never Again!": in search of the alternatives and like-minded persons!

Oct
25

We invite you to join the international week of the educational actions "Crystal Night – NEVER AGAIN!"

For some years, the week during November 9-16 is filled with the events connected with personal and social counteraction to racism, xenophobia and intolerance.

Special events and picketing, movie screenings and exhibitions, flash mobs and performances, seminars and conferences are held these days by individuals or social groups, members of non-governmental organizations, social movements and local communities, teachers, artists, researchers and journalists. Despite differences in occupations, opinions, beliefs and way of life, citizens of many countries do not spare time and efforts to save humanity, love and peace, to protect them from the ideologies of hatred, hostility and terror.

They know that fascism and totalitarianism were not the only possible options for the European people neither in the first half of the XX-th century nor today. We always have alternatives but we should not forget about them and make them visible and significant in our past, as well as in our present and future.

The organizers believe that "If we do not promote alternatives to fascism (xenophobia, militarization, totalitarian thinking) literally everywhere, it is fascism that remains the only possible future scenario."
