VILNIUS, March 21 (Itar-Tass) —— The growth of neo-Nazi manifestations continues in Lithuania. The Lithuania without Nazism Association came to the conclusion upon the results of the monitoring of the social base of reviving neo-Nazi moods in February-March 2012.
“Lithuania reports further growth of the influence of neo-Nazi organizations, which dominate at main national holidays,” the association said in a statement on Wednesday.
The neo-Nazi organizations took advantage of two dates in February and March, namely the Day of Restoration of Statehood on February 16, 1918, and the Day of Restoration of Independence on March 11, 1990 and staged marches in both cases.
The association believes that the Lithuanian society does not find an adequate response to these escapades. “The authorities are making customary appeals to observe democratic principles, but issue permits for the actions of the neo-Nazis,” the statement runs. The society underestimates the dangers of this phenomenon, and “some people are sympathising with it,” the association said in the statement. “In the context of an economic gap and the spreading of household anti-Semitism the neo-Nazis have all opportunities to increase in number,” the association warns.
