February 8, 1967
See Original Daily Bulletin From This Date

Warnings against any revival of Nazism in Belgium and other countries, particularly in West Germany, were voiced last night by speakers at a mass meeting in Gand. The rally was organized by Belgian movements of former resistance fighters, as well as by the Catholic, Liberal, Socialist and Communist parties. Speakers called for better information and civic guidance of youth against such activities.

At the close of the meeting, telegrams of protest against resurgent neo-Nazism were sent to the West German Ambassador in Belgium, and to the Belgian Prime Minister. Minor incidents were provoked at the meeting by members of the “Volksunie Party” and the “Vlaamse Militanten Orde.”
