  • Description

    THE EXTREME RIGHT-WING NATIONAL DEMOCRATIC PARTY IS PRINTING MORE THAN SEVENTEEN MILLION COPIES OF A SPECIAL NEWSPAPER OUTLINING THEIR PLATFORM FOR THE UPCOMING WEST GERMAN GENERAL ELECTION NEXT MONTH.

    THE PAPER IS BEING PUSHED THROUGH LETTER BOXES AND HANDED OUT FREELY IN THE STREETS. IT'S PART OF THE NPD'S STRONG BID TO ELECT DEPUTIES FOR THE FIRST TIME TO THE BONN PARLIAMENT. THEY NEED ONLY FIVE PERCENT OF THE VOTES AND FEW WEST GERMANS ARE BETTING THAT THEY WILL FAIL TO CLEAR THAT HURDLE.

    THE PARTY IS ALSO TRYING TO DEFEND ITSELF AGAINST CHARGES OF STORM-TROOPER TACTICS AT A RECENT MEETING IN FRANKFURT. PARTY STEWARTS HAVE BEEN ACCUSED OF BEATING UP DEMONSTRATORS IN WHAT THE PRESS HAS CALLED A "BLOODBATH" RECALLING NAZI TIMES.
