Statement of FIR for the Members of the European Parliament

20. Oktober 2007

The international federation of the resistance fighters (FIR) – Association of Anti-fascists, the umbrella organisation of federations of former resistance fighters, partisans, members of the anti-Hitler coalition, persecutes of the Nazi-regime and anti-fascists of today’s generations from over twenty European countries and Israel, appeals from their XIV congress held in October 2007 in Athens to all democratic parliamentary parties of the European Parliament to create positive examples for their attitude against neo-fascism, racism, anti-semitism and xenophobia and to support all antifascist initiatives and proposals for action.

Over and above we call upon the European Parliament to create the legal foundation to discontinue to finance groups of the extreme right in the European Parliament with European tax payers money and to immediately suppress activities of these groups.
