On Saturday, February 17, over 300 nationalists attended a memorial in Dresden for the nearly 500,000 German civilians killed there in British and American terror bombing on February 13 and 14, 1945. As usual, a group of Antifa came and tried to drown out the nationalists with noise. Police kept the two sides apart. Organizer Gerd Ittner was not allowed to speak because he’d been to jail under Sec. 130 (Germany’s holocaust blasphemy law). Echos of communist era repression of free speech. 

Lady Michele Renouf  was not a scheduled speaker but people recognized her as a famous model and supporter of free thinking. She was pressed to deliver an impromptu talk. She was cut off part way through by the vigilant political police. The memorial was shut down and the participants kettled and detained for four hours.
Lady Michele was taken away in a police car and detained for five  hours. An investigation has been initiated against her under Sec. 130 of the German criminal code. Her identification was checked. She was questioned and then released. Her answers will be studied by the authorities and, then, they will decide how/whether to proceed. Lady Michelle had to provide contact information for receiving documents from the court.
In an interview, Lady Michele told CAFE: “I left the Jews out of my comments. When I was in the police car, the police woman claimed I told her: ‘The Jews were gassed but that was not a holocaust.’I never said any such thing. That is one of the accusations against me.”
If the case proceeds, Lady Michele said: “I will appear in court.”

She noted that her detention gained the rally worldwide attention from Sidney to Kosovo to Jerusalem. She noted that the fake news Associated Press (February 18, 2018) datelined its report Berlin, instead of Dresden, and fudged the full purpose of the rally, merely throwing out the soap opera smear ” a neo-Nazi rally.”
In a note today, she added: ” I regret only that my arrest caused the Dresden Memorial event midway to be closed down and that the scheduled speakers were thus frustrated in their good intentions.  Indeed I pleaded with the police to allow the event to be let go ahead, pointing out that I was invited only on the spot to give an impromptu speech [simply because some of the 300 strong audience cheers at the mention that I was among their number] and so the event as scheduled should not suffer.  But alas a police-woman lied that I had said (which she falsely attributed to me “jews were gassed but that is not a holocaust”) and so she over-ruled the others.  I was released five hours afterwards still charged with Volksvehetzung (populace incitement) Para 130.

However it was nice to know that one other officer tried to relieve me of my guilt for the event closure by suggesting, to my surprise, that the audience would have preferred to hear my speech!  It was also nice to know that comrades who had not the chance to speak held no hard feelings, even after being kettled for four very chilly hours afterwards in the street, for they cried “ It is time to defeat the enemy, they stole our good comrade Lady Michelle”!  Sweet.  I treasure their warm loyalty.  In all events, as our English comrade, Richard Edmonds likewise re-assures me, that owing to my ad lib and arrest for Volksvehetzung (populace incitement) Para 130 “you have certainly put the demo on the world map; I think otherwise it would have passed unnoticed”. There does seem to be 10 pages worth and mounting on Google, astonishing.

We shall now see what the authorities decide to do about me (goaded on, one can expect, by Dr.Zuroff of the Simon Wiesenthal Centre who long ago noted “Renouf is very dangerous” [for being credible] plus the Israeli “settler” who incites across Facebook “Send Renouf ricin in a get-well card” [with impunity].  Prison is a waste of time politically, but an enforced chance to learn German could be nice!”

Alfred Schaefer, himself several times charged under Sec. 130 rejoiced at the turn of events: ” The commemoration on 17 Feb for the bombing of Dresden in 1945 was a great success. People all around the world are WAKING UP! The shutting down of this event has helped us gain much wider attention than we could have hoped for otherwise.”
The publicity for this event, which the press has recently tried to ignore, has rocketed worldwide. I thank Gerd Ittner for this very partial list of write-ups of this event.

Our Letters Are Reaching Political Prisoner Monika Schaefer

Our Letters Are Reaching Political Prisoner Monika Schaefer
People are beginning to receive letters from political prisoner Monika Schaefer, arrested, January 3, and held in a maximum security prison, apparently for her video, Sorry, Mom, I Was Wrong About the Holocaust.
She has received about two thirds of her mail, the prison authorities told her. The rest is being held because it violates Sec. 130 of the German Criminal Code, which essentially enforces the New Religion of Holocaust and forbids any questioning of the Hollywood version of World War II. Thus, it is important in writing to Monika not to talk about the so-called holocaust or Jews. Letters should be newsy or personal or supportive. 
Monika is in good spirits and is bouyed by the outpouring of concern and support. He sister-in-law has visited her several times. She is allowed out for an hour a day`s exercise. Here are two reports of recent letters from Monika.
From British activist Richard Edmonds
Today (February 5) I received a very friendly letter from Monika. Also my friend Milton Ellis who lives in Wales, U.K. received a letter from Monika this morning.

In her letter, dated the 20th. January (and date-stamped the 2. February, Munich), she says that on the 19th. January  she was given a lot of letters; these were the first letters handed over, till then she had heard nothing from anybody apart from a visit by the Canadian consul. She writes that she has now received many letters of support; and the prison  authorities tell her that there are many more that they can give her. But they have also informed her that one third of all the mail addressed to her cannot be handed over and Monika suspects because the contents are contrary to Section 130 of the Basic Law (the German Race Law).

Monika says how the letters of support induce positive energy into her. From Britain she also received a card from a group of British Friends; this card was posted on the day that Alison Ch. had her most recent court appearance (10. Jan.). Monika asks that I pass on thanks to all those whose names on the card she recognises (and I have e-mail addresses for): Monika gives a special hug for Alison, “I cherish the memory of playing together with her”,  also to Stead, James T. Adrian, Paul, Melinda Peter Phillips and to two or three others with unclear names.

Monika concludes : I thank all those who have written to me. It has cheered my heart tremendously.


And from Monika`s brother Alfred:
Dear all,

Today I got  phone call from a woman who has just come out of this prison and was Monika’s room mate. Also, my wife had seen Monika last Wednesday, and will see her again tomorrow.

Monika is in strong spirit, she is unbowed, and she is more concerned about our well being in this struggle than she is about her own forced absence from the struggle. — Alfred

Monika`s address is:
