From the website of German punks SS-Kaliert:
“I’D RATHER BELIEVE IN THE VIRGINITY OF A PROSTITUTE, THAN IN THE JUSTICE OF GERMAN LAWS!!”
– Slime (Gerechtigkeit)
We couldn’t have expressed it better than German Punk-heroes Slime in their song “Gerechtigkeit” (Justice) about the following happening:
German Prosecutor sued Punkband SS-KALIERT due to the use of their logo. He claims the band to use the lightning-bolds of the Nazi SS in World War 2. This is punishable with up to 3 years in jail for the band members by German Law.
SS-KALIERT is and has always been strictly anti-fascist, anti-racist and anti-nationalist. The Band uses logos such as “Good Night White Pride” or crossed out Swastikas on their websites and on their releases, clear statements in their lyrics and in every interview they give. Up until the court date SS-KALIERT will not give in and keep both logo and name as they are. We will see what happens after that. The band will be thankful for every kind of support, even if its just a short note in a fanzine/webzine, a short report on a radio station about this case or whatever.
