The Legal Framework of White Oppression

Laws against "inciting racial hatred" exist in: Germany, Switzerland, France, Spain, Belgium and Poland.

Fact: A 1997 study by Eurobarometer, a survey on racism and xenophobia requested by the European Commission found that on average about 9% of residents of EU countries considered themselves very racist.

One case which illustrates the legal framework of persecution in nearly all European countries is that of Robert Faurisson -- a hero for our times.


From the EU's proposal. Basically says it is punishable by law to dislike someone based on their religion, race, descent or personal beliefs.

Article 4 - Offences concerning racism and xenophobia

Member States shall ensure that the following intentional conduct committed by any means is punishable as criminal offence:

(a) public incitement to violence or hatred for a racist or xenophobic purpose or to any other racist or xenophobic behaviour which may cause substantial damage to individuals or groups concerned;

(b) public insults or threats towards individuals or groups for a racist or xenophobic purpose;

(c) public condoning for a racist or xenophobic purpose of crimes of genocide, crimes against humanity and war crimes as defined in Articles 6, 7 and 8 of the Statute of the International Criminal Court;

(d) public denial or trivialisation of the crimes defined in Article 6 of the Charter of the International Military Tribunal appended to the London Agreement of 8 April 1945 in a manner liable (read: interpretation of potential) to disturb the public peace;

(e) public dissemination or distribution of tracts, pictures or other material containing expressions of racism and xenophobia;

(f) directing, supporting of or participating in the activities of a racist or xenophobic group, with the intention of contributing to the organisation's criminal activities.

..."As concerns the conduct mentioned in Article 4 (d) the changes to the wording of the Joint Action of 1996 are largely inspired by the German law, which incriminates not only the denial but also the trivialisation of the crimes mentioned, if that is liable to disturb the public peace. This should be interpreted as regards to the potencial of the conduct of disturbing the public peace."

Paragraph (a) defines "racism and xenophobia" as the belief in race, colour, descent, religion or belief, national or ethnic origin as a factor determining aversion to individuals or groups --
