BRUSSELS – A large concert event is expected to be held by the international neo-Nazi group Blood and Honour in Flanders on Saturday. As usual the location of the concert will not be announced until sometime during the day on Saturday. The Anti-Fascist Front (AFF) reported this in a press release on Friday.

The organisers tried to rent sport hall De Groene Meersen (which can accommodate more than 2,000 concert goers) in Zedelgem near Bruges, but an employee of the facility would not allow the event to be hosted there.

Blood and Honour was founded in 1987 by Ian Stuart Donaldson, singer for the band Skrewdriver. Donaldson was killed in a car crash six years later. The name of the group, infamous for being extremely violent, is taken from the slogan from the Hitler youth "Blut und Ehre".

Ten music groups have been announced for the concert, which will be in honour of Donaldson. "In the past the police have only checked to make sure that there was no commotion outside the venue," the AFF claims.

"The police did not see that a VTM cameraman was abused inside the venue at a concert in Vremde. The claim that they could not take action because it is a private party is just nonsense," says the AFF, which stresses that the music from most of the groups scheduled for the event is aimed at inciting hate towards Jews, freemasons, and the multicultural society.

The Anti-Fascist Front send an open letter to ministers Dewael (home affairs) and Onkelinx (justice) and government formateur Leterme asking that the gatherings be stopped.
