Neo-Nazi and extreme right-wing groups plan to hold “alternative Olympic games” this summer in Munich, the site of the official Olympic games. The extremist group, Action Resistance, in its official organ, Mut (Courage), has called upon “militants” to organize the alternative games in order to prove to the world the strength of right-wing organizations. Action Resistance is a relatively new group which was formed by young neo-Nazis and right-wing activists who oppose Chancellor Willy Brandt’s policy of reconciliation with East Europe. The International Confederation of Nazi and Fascist Organizations, in its official organ, Nation Europa, has also called upon its adherents to participate in the “First National European Youth Congress” during the Olympic games.
