REPORT FROM WARSAW - POLAND

Few days ago, on 16th of May, in the evening, an antifasciscist activist was attacked by two nazis, with clear intentions to kill him. They have been following him, and, suddenly one of them steped in front on him and used a pepper gas on him. Then the other one stabbed him in his back with 30cm long knife. Maciek fell on the ground and was kicked by the nazis for a while, with them shouting "We'll kill you, you leftist motherfucker!".

APPEAL FOR HELP!

Few days ago, on 16th of May, in the evening, an antifasciscist activist was attacked by two nazis, with clear intentions to kill him. They have been following him, and, suddenly one of them steped in front on him and used a pepper gas on him. Then the other one stabbed him in his back with 30cm long knife. Maciek fell on the ground and was kicked by the nazis for a while, with them shouting "We'll kill you, you leftist motherfucker!".

Maciek was taken to the hospital and underwent serious life-saving surgery (when he got to the hospital the doctors said that his condition was "critical"), and now is recovering. He still is not 100% OK, he still has blood in his lung. He says that he is sure that the attack was due to his personal data recent appearance on a nazi site called "redwatch" (www.redwatch.info). Redwatch is a web-site that have existed for several months now and it promotes the idea of "killing the enemies of the race" and the organization behind this is a very radical neofascist "Blood and Honor". The problem is that Maciek didn't have medical insurance, so that he may be forced to pay up to 20.000 PLN (5.000 euro).

We are collecting money to help him pay for his treatment. We kindly ask for your help. Please, send money to this account with a note "For Maciek":

the information is not meant to scare anybody, its meant to force you to move your fat revolutionary asses and do something; from the infos that got to poland and a quick browse of irish indymedia it seams that its a last call for You to start the fight with fascists - in warsaw we got a strong antifa, but its already to late when nazis and other fascist scum fell that they might have any support (for e. government or fascist organizations)

no pasaran

This redwatch site has an ulster section, asking for names and addresses of anti-racist and republican activists in Northern Ireland. The leering racists who taunted the hunger strikers at St. Patricks Cathedral will try to move to similar tactics if they can. We must stop them.

Hmmm. "Live by the sword, die by the sword".

All the best with fundraising in Dublin. Maybe put out a leaflet in Polich. WSM & other folks had contact with Polish folks last year around a workers protest who could translate it.

This sounds awfully like a scam letter. Is there any way we can verify its authenticity so people can feel secure donating money?

as a general point, perhaps there is a need for a procedure wherby people can submit more details and be verified before being allowed to solicit donations through indymedia.

If it IS genuine then my apologies for my cynicism. The Internet has made me this way!

well, as a method of authentication you can got to polish indymedia - pl.indymedia.org, could ask ask any bothy from WSM/anarchist youth if a can be trusted, you can contact the polish anarchist federation ( www.fa.prv.pl )

we don't need to translate the info into polish - it comes from poland and it is circulated among polish anarchists in ireland in polish
