Supremacist Group Targets MLK Event (USA)

It was everything the event was speaking out against. A Martin Luther King celebration Monday in Billings was allegedly targeted by a white supremacy group at MSU Billings in Petro Theatre.

The event had just gotten underway when organizer Eran Thompson said someone threw about 100 flyers into the lobby. He said the flyers were promoting a white supremacy group.

Not In Our Town said it was disheartening, but didn't stop the event.

“It's unfortunate they chose Monday to come drop off leaflets and literature. Not in our Town will take a stance against hate and intolerance. We will use this as an opportunity and motivation to go out and inform the community about these events, and they do really happen, and Monday’s a prime example,” said Ali Hashemzadeh.

Campus police said they responded to an incident at Petro Theatre, but wouldn’t give more details. Thompson said the flyers had the logo on them for a group known as the Creativity Movement.

Attacks against the Roma community members has resurfaced as a big problem in Serbia. The situation remains tense in an area near the town of Pozega, home to around 700 Serbs, after they had written neo-nazist slogans aimed against the Roma. Serbian officials have condemned the appearance of the Nazi swastika in different locations around the town. However, this is not the first time that the Roma have become object of attack. A year ago, because of a murder, hundreds of Roma were locked in their homes in the village of Jabuka near Pancevo, after being attacked by their neighbors. In Pozega, slogans containing "Roma, too, out of Serbia" were to be seen in several locations. Citizens have been caught by surprise, as it is said that this area never had such problems. Nevertheless, groups of young people who express such ideas are not scarce. Serbian courts are discussing the possibility of banning some 14 groups of fans and groups who express such extreme ideas.

President Medvedev calls for crackdown on neo-Nazi groups (Russia)

On Monday, Russian President Dmitry Medvedev urged his government to crackdown on neo-Nazis in the wake of racial clashes in Moscow that were the worst since the fall of the Soviet Union.

Far-right nationalism has been an ongoing concern in Russia for decades, but has been on the upswing in recent years, gaining membership at a rate that has shocked many Russians.

They’ve held rallies in the capital, bearing swastikas and chanting “Russia is for Russians”.

“All Nazis, independent of where they come from... they simply undermine the cultural foundations of our state,” said the Russian President.

In December of 2010 Moscow authorities were overwhelmed by 7,000 right-wing nationalists who gathered outside the Kremlin and began beating people of non-Slavic appearance.

Russian Prime Minister Vladimir Putin joined Medvedev in denouncing the racism calling it “xenophobia”, which is unacceptable in the modern inter-connected world.

Russia is due to host the 2018 soccer World Cup and the latest incidents have raised concerns about the safety and security of non-white visitors to the country.

Thousands of schoolchildren branded 'racist' and 'homophobic' during playground squabbles (UK)

Thousands of children, including those attending nursery school, were involved in racist or homophobic incidents over the past year, figures have disclosed.

Teachers logged more than 10,000 confrontations involving primary school students making racist insults or derogatory comments about homosexuals in 12 months.

A further 20,000 “hate crimes” were recorded against secondary school students such as using the phrases “white trash” or “gaylord” during playground squabbles.

And nursery school staff reported several dozen such bullying incidents involving young children despite most not understanding the meaning of what they were saying.

Experts said the government was attacking childhood. The government has previously said that any sort of bullying was "totally unacceptable and should not be tolerated".

The figures for 2008/09, obtained under the Freedom of Information Act, disclosed 29,659 racist incidents were reported by schools to local education authorities in England and Wales.

Of these, 10,436 were at primary schools and 41 were reported at nursery schools. More than 50 incidents involved police. Hundreds of incidents involved “homophobic” insults. Birmingham City Council recorded the highest number, with 1,607 racist incidents, compared with only two each in the Vale of Glamorgan and Hartlepool.

The latest figures are less than the 40,000 annual incidents of racism recorded previously. Schools were placed under a duty by the Government in 2002 to monitor and report all racist incidents to their local authority.

After the introduction of the Race Relations (Amendment) Act 2000, which put public bodies under a duty to eliminate discrimination, schools were told they had to monitor the impact of their policies on the educational attainment of pupils of different races.

Racist incident forms were then created that required teachers to name the alleged perpetrator and victim, and spell out what they did and how they were punished. Schools can keep these details on file.

“I feel that childhood itself is under attack,” Adrian Hart, from the Manifesto Club, a civil liberies group, which obtained the figures.

“It’s absolutely the case that these policies misunderstand children quite profoundly."

He added to the Daily Mail: “Racist incident reporting generates the illusion of a problem with racism in Britain’s schools by trawling the everyday world of playground banter, teasing, childish insults – the sort of things that every teacher knows happens out there in the playground.”

Last September The Daily Telegraph disclosed that a serious case review of a student, Henry Webster, attacked with a hammer by racist bullies in 2007 recommended that all schools go far further. Teachers should investigate whether racism may be a factor in every incident of playground bullying, it found.
