Wasted Youth canceln Show in Kroatien

Via „RASH Stuttgart“:

State­ment von Was­ted Youth zu ihrer Kon­zert­ab­sa­ge:

We are sad that we have to an­noun­ce that we won‘t play on this year’s Sick As We Are Fes­ti­val in Croa­tia. We‘ve got some in­for­ma­ti­on about the band Ground Zero from Novi Sad, who are also play­ing at the fes­ti­val, which makes it sim­ply im­pos­si­ble for us to share the stage with them. We also shared these in­for­ma­ti­on with the pro­mo­ters, but as they don‘t see it as a re­a­son to kick out Ground Zero from the line up, we are forced to can­cel the show.

One of the gui­ta­rists of Ground Zero used to play in a na­tio­na­list fa­scist black metal band cal­led Wolf’s Hun­ger, who de­scri­be them­sel­ves as a pa­trio­tic black metal band with ly­rics about Ser­bi­an my­tho­lo­gy and his­to­ry. Mem­bers of Wolf’s Hun­ger are also known fa­scists who foun­ded, for ex­amp­le, the or­ga­ni­sa­ti­on „Ra­so­na­lis­ti Srbi­je“ some years ago, for which they were sprea­ding fly­ers on con­certs. Alt­hough that or­ga­niza­t­i­on wasn‘t re­al­ly ac­tive and doesn‘t exist any­mo­re, they are re­gis­te­red as neo-​Na­zi or­ga­niza­t­i­on in Ser­bia and their mes­sa­ge is clear. Among other things, their pro­gram is about “na­tu­ral order”, which is based on one-​ra­ce so­cie­ties, ra­ci­al se­pa­ra­ti­on and re­pa­tria­ti­on of all non-​Eu­ropeans and their des­cend­ents, no mat­ter if they are “pure” or “mixed”. Ho­mo­se­xua­li­ty, ab­or­ti­on, drugs and ra­ci­al mi­xing is strict­ly against the “order”, as it is writ­ten on their fly­ers. There are many other things they were pro­mo­ting, but that’s not the main topic of this text. The ex­pla­na­ti­on we got, why Ground Zero should be fine, is that the gui­ta­rist is just apo­li­ti­cal , as the whole band is. Is it apo­li­ti­cal to play in a band that is sprea­ding fa­scist and na­tio­na­list ideas? The gui­ta­rist of Ground Zero can‘t be cal­led even „grey­zo­ne“ any­mo­re, he used to be ac­tive for the very ob­vious cause of Wolf’s Hun­ger, so he chose his side.
