Neo-nazi rock fans must have thought they’d taken one tab too many last week as their t-shirts offered them some friendly advice. Punters at “Rock for Germany” were given 250 free t-shirts with a skull and crossbones design and the words “Hardcore Rebels” written on the front. However when these “rebels” got home and washed them the logo disappeared to reveal the words “If your T-shirt can do it, you can do it too – we’ll help you get away from rightwing extremism”.
The stunt was organised by Exit (basically Germany’s version of the UAF) who had sought to undermine the message of the festival organisers – the National Democratic Party (NDP). Unsurprisingly the NDP, Germany’s biggest neo-Nazi party, failed to see the funny side.
