  1. THESSALONIKI, Greece — Anarchists have clashed with riot police in Greece after some 2,000 protesters from across the Balkans marched in the northern Greek city of Thessaloniki against nationalism in the region.

    Police used tear gas and threw stun grenades Saturday at the anarchists, who were barricaded inside the University of Thessaloniki campus. Police are prohibited by law to enter the campus to make arrests.

    The gathering of Balkan anarchists was organized after far-right activists burned down an anarchist collective’s premises in Thessaloniki in January.

  2. BREAKING: Identitarian Leader Martin Sellner detained by Uk police for “inciting hatred/tension between local communities”

    The British chapter of Generation Identity just released a statement saying that Austrian identitarian leader Martin Sellner, accompanied by his girlfriend Brittany Pettibone, has been detained by the airport police in England. The cause of the detention? Apparently, the speech Sellner was supposed to give this Sunday on the topic of free speech would be causing tension among local communities and possibly incite hatred.

    Here is the full statement from the British GI chapter:

    “Yesterday, Martin Sellner and Brittany Pettibone were detained by the UK Government and effectively declared political dissidents. The government has decided that Martin’s talk about free speech is too dangerous to be heard. Don’t worry, some of our activists will be reading his speech at Speakers’ Corner at noon tomorrow in his stead. We can’t allow either the far left or the government to silence us!”

  4. President Donald Trump broke bread with former deputy assistant Sebastian Gorka in the White House, along with a Fox News pundit — and no, it wasn’t Sean Hannity.

    In a sign of how his stock continues to rise at the network, joining the president and his former aide was none other than Fox News personality Jesse Watters, according to The Daily Beast.

    Trump invited the men to dinner in the White House residence Monday because “he couldn’t get enough of them on TV,” according to the customary anonymous source.

    Topics of conversation at the table reportedly included “what he’d seen on Fox News, politics, gossip, and his administration,” the Daily Beast reported.

    The source said Trump joked that he “missed” Gorka, a current Fox News contributor who served as an aide to fired White House chief strategist Steve Bannon.

    The President of the United States of America is a proud leader of this great and patriotic nation – in which he has honored the brave men and women of our Armed Forces in more ways than any previous President in modern history – and that’s now been confirmed yet again with a military parade to support America’s finest.

    The Pentagon has issued a memorandum which outlines the blueprints for the parade, which is said to include period uniforms, and a complete airshow that will showcase American-made planes of every branch of the Armed Services, but leaves out the usage of tanks to avoid any damage to the infrastructure in Washington, DC.

We finally convinced the insurance company to move him to Fort Lauderdale. . . . Unfortunately, it was too late. The infections he had contracted had worsened and his system was shutting down. He passed away the following day.”

    Social affairs officer, Ingo Nürnberger, commented regarding the city building apartments only for refugees, “There is clearly an envy debate,” he says. But: “Every built apartment currently relieves the housing market,” he adds.

  16. Autor Tellkamp vertritt Pegida-Positionen

    Bei einer Debatte im Dresdner Kulturpalast vertrat der 49-jährige Autor Uwe Tellkamp („Der Turm“) am Donnerstag vor allem Positionen der AfD und der fremdenfeindlichen Pegida-Bewegung. Der Verlag Suhrkamp distanzierte sich.

    Dresden. Die Dichter Durs Grünbein und Uwe Tellkamp haben sich in ihrer Geburtsstadt Dresden einen verbalen Schlagabtausch um die Flüchtlingspolitik und Meinungsfreiheit geliefert. Bei der Debatte vor mehreren Hundert Zuschauern im Dresdner Kulturpalast vertrat der 49-jährige Tellkamp („Der Turm“) am Donnerstagabend vor allem rechtsradikale Positionen der AfD und der islam- und ausländerfeindlichen Pegida-Bewegung. Zu den Motiven von Flüchtlingen sagte er unter anderem: „Die meisten fliehen nicht vor Krieg und Verfolgung, sondern kommen her, um in die Sozialsysteme einzuwandern, über 95 Prozent.“ Zudem gab Telkamp Verschwörungstheoretisches gegen die Medien von sich: „Viele Journalisten sind auf Regierungslinie.“

    Grünbein: Klimawandel in der Debatte nötig

    Ein Ausgangspunkt der Debatte war die „Charta 2017“, die von einer Dresdner Buchhändlerin ins Leben gerufen wurde. Damit reagierte sie auf den Umgang der Frankfurter Buchmesse mit rechten Verlagen 2017. Im Kampf gegen Rechts sei die Gesellschaft „nicht mehr weit von einer Gesinnungsdiktatur entfernt“, heißt es in den Appell. Tellkamp hatte ihn unterzeichnet, Grünbein nicht.

    Grünbein (55) warb für einen Klimawandel in der politischen Debatte und verteidigte die Flüchtlingspolitik der Bundesregierung. Tellkamp bemängelte, dass die Grenzöffnung am Bundestag vorbei erfolgt sei. Den Medien unterstellte er, in der politischen Auseinandersetzung mit zweierlei Maß zu messen.

    Suhrkamp-Verlag geht auf Distanz zu „Turm“-Autor
    Nach umstrittenen Äußerungen des Schriftstellers Tellkamp hat sich der Suhrkamp-Verlag von seinem Autor distanziert.

    „Aus gegebenem Anlass: Die Haltung, die in Äußerungen von Autoren des Hauses zum Ausdruck kommt, ist nicht mit der des Verlags zu verwechseln. #Tellkamp“, twitterte Suhrkamp am Freitag.
