Anarchist Black Cross Helsinki statement on the benefit gig of May 2nd and National Boshevism

Anarchist Black Cross of Helsinki organised a support concert 2nd of May with Liquid Sisters, Suspiria, Mare And The Corpse-Eyed Toads, Celibat, Kombinator. Three latter bands were from Russia and ahd over-lapping membership.   During and after the gig it became known that some members of the Russian bands had National-bolshevik sympathies, and eventually gig planned for Turku the following day was cancelled by organisers there.   It is rather stupid to make remarks against immigrants while you are hosted by immigrants, but what else may you expect from a National Bolshevik.   We fully accept decision of the Turku organisers and we also apologize to people who came to our concert for the views of the performed groups -  we would not had provided these group a platform if we knew about views of their members. We do not want to give any support to National Bolshevism.   Anarchist Black Cross Helsinki
