Ukraine: Anger as Neo-Nazis Display Confederate Flag in Kiev

This was the flag of slave holding states in the United States that seceded in 1861, causing the Civil War. Today the symbol is used by the Ku Klux Klan, Neo-Nazi groups, and other organizations who are hostile to African-Americans. For the last several decades, protests have continued, demanding that this flag not be displayed in public places.

Many people were greatly disturbed to see that the Confederate Flag is now being displayed, not in the United States, but in Kiev, the capital city of Ukraine.

Larry Holmes, a civil rights activist in New York City, explained why the flag is so offensive. After Kiev was seized by US backed anti-Russia protesters, the confederate flag was displayed in city hall. Holmes says that this causes him to be very concerned about the new regime.

Solidarity with Ukraine Anti-Fascists at NYC LGBTQ Pride, June 29, 2014.

The revolutionary contingent organized by Workers World Party was an oasis of struggle in the midst of the corporate-dominated “official” New York City Pride march. Our dynamic group included many young activists from FIST - Fight Imperialism, Stand Together and our comrades in struggle from El Colectivo Honduras USA Resistencia — Partido Libre.

We felt a special responsibility to speak out in support of the embattled anti-fascist resistance in Ukraine and the people’s republics of Dontesk and Lugansk. This weekend supporters of the far-right coup in Kiev, including U.S.-backed NGOs, held a “Pride” festival there. This blatant “pink-washing” of the fascist-dominated junta is calculated to divide the resistance and the working class. Our delegation carried signs declaring, “No Pride in Supporting Kiev Fascists – Solidarity with Resistance in Ukraine.”
