    Happenned a couple of month ago, but i just learnt about it!

    Help out SS Kaliert
    "I'D RATHER BELIEVE IN THE VIRGINITY OF A PROSTITUTE, THAN IN THE
    JUSTICE OF GERMAN LAWS!!"
    - Slime (Gerechtigkeit)

    We couldn't have expressed it better than German Punk-heroes Slime in
    their song "Gerechtigkeit" (Justice) about the following happening:
    German Prosecutor sued Punkband SS-KALIERT due to the use of their
    logo. He claims the band to use the lightning-bolds of the Nazi SS in
    World War 2. This is punishable with up to 3 years in jail for the band members by German Law. Such nonsense is only possible in Germany; no other country in the world would sue somebody for using letters of a font you can download legally on the internet
    (http://www.urbanfonts.com/fonts/Incantation.htm) that obviously
    doesn't even match with the Nazi SS symbol. What about one of the biggest German banks- the "SparkaSSe"? Or people with the initials of S.S, like Simon Schuster for example? Would they get sued for using their initials? What about a Graf-ADOLF-Street that you can find in almost every bigger German City, why won't they be renamed? Complete Nonsense!!! SS-KALIERT is and has always been strictly anti-fascist, anti-racist and anti-nationalist. The Band uses logos such as "Good Night White Pride" or crossed out Swastikas on their websites and on their releases, clear statements in their lyrics and in every interview they give, they have been invited to play Israel in September 09 and hard to believe but also true- even SS-KALIERT’S Japanese guitar player A.G is sued for using a "Nazi" symbol. Up until the court date SS-KALIERT will not give in and keep both logo and name as they are. We will see what happens after that. The band will be thankful for every kind of support, even if its just a short note in a fanzine/webzine, a short report on a radio station about this case or whatever.

    Please spread the word and make that injustice happening in Germany public and help the band to avoid getting punished for NOTHING!
    Get in touch with the band through their myspace
    (www.myspace.com/sskaliert), or directly through email
    ([email protected]) if you have anything that can help, or need any
    further information for a publishing.

    Dude saying Germany wants to ban Nazism because of WWII is like saying the Netherlands should've nothing at all to do in any way, especially punk bands, with anything even remotely related to slaves...

    Im pretty sure even Anti-Nazi symbols are banned.
    They just don't want their people to even think about it

    Another analogy would be the US banning any symbols relating to the Cavalry (the military that slaughtered millions of indians)

    well, after fascist groups aren't really banned, we just have to step into the breach and keep on being very busy!
    :anti-nazi: can get you in trouble for "using symbols of anti-constitutional organisations" § 86 Abs. 1 Nr. 1 StGB ff./criminal code of the federal republic :ecouteurs:
