This a general call-out to shut down Death in June, an English neo-Nazi band, by creating an anti-fascist presence at the event or putting enough pressure on the venue so they bow out.
Let’s let them know that we do not want a fascist band in Vancouver and we will not support a venue that collaborates with neo-Nazis.
Mo Tarmohamed, the general manager:
The Rickshaw Info Line:
Douglas Pearce, has espoused racist, Islamophobic, anti-immigrant hatred in a number of interviews. He has called for a new “Final Solution,” referring to the Nazi campaign to exterminate Jewish people throughout Eruope. The band also utilizes fascist imagery on their album covers and merchandise, including the Totenkopf, which was the symbol of the Nazi SS during WWII.
Death in June’s message is toxic and must be stopped.
SHUT IT DOWN

Quotes from Douglas Pearce:
“To paraphrase PERE UBU, ‘I don’t need a cure, I need a Final Solution!'”
“The Totenkopf is used all over Europe as a sign of total commitment, so I’ve never really had any problems with it.”
“Depending upon their ‘ version ‘ of Eurocentric Racialism, then 9 times out of 10 I feel very comfortable with it.”
“THE WORLD SEEMS TO BE SO FULL OF SO MANY DANGERS THAT IT’S HARD TO SINGLE ANY PARTICULAR ONES OUT. CERTAINLY THE MOST OBVIOUS THAT SPRING TO MIND ARE THE GROWTHS IN ISLAMIC FUNDAMENTALISM AND OUT OF CONTROL BREEDING. EVEN IN EUROPA, WITH ZERO POPULATION GROWTH IN MANY COUNTRIES, THOSE WHO ARE DOING THE BREEDING APPEAR TO ME, AND I THINK MANY OTHERS, TO BE OF DUBIOUS CHARACTER. THEY FUCK, THEY HAVE KIDS AND THAT IS ALL THEY DO!”
