> Holy shit , Bob !
Well Maria and I got to go to the teachers conference yesterday. And we scared the
shit out of them. Over and above the discussion on the problems we are facing (showing
music,t-shirts and Nazi symbols we have been seeing of late) with this stuff I took up
the last ten years of cuts and downsizing in schools which has laid the framework for
these youth who are now looking at New Nazism as and alternative. Pointing out that
these kids for years have been told that they are not worth anything. Well, the Nazi's
have a different position and say they are worthy for there great cause. Notibly the
overwhelming number of kids who are involved in this stuff have very bad grades and
have given up in school. But not all. The clever ones use these others to be the
loudmouths while they pull the strings in back of them.
Now the teachers are saying we must do something before its to late. Well for many of
these kids it is too late. They have given up and turned there backs on society.
Notibly nothing of what actully we should do came to the surface. When we told them
about the murder threats many lookewd like they wanted to be as far away as possibvle
from the reality we are living in.
In fact there appears to be a general tendency amongst youth of the adult world
One thing to talk but this kind of action for teachers strikes fear into their hearts.
The whole commune now is getting a bit hysterical. Even the cops are getting more
active. They turned up at the youth hostel last night wondering what is going on.
One of my fellow workers a 63 year old women rang up the press that had used my name
screaming at them that they were responsible for the death threats! She was just in
Auswitz with a group of kids this summer and they have done some great work with the
kids in this commune.
We have also been given a half and hour later this week before the politicans in the
childrens education committee which is the higest instance and where all decisions on
school policy are made..
Tonight there is a parent meeting where I am gonna raise the whole question again..
Now I will also go to my union an other unions in the commune demanding that they do
