    TRANSCRIPT (SEQ 6): VON THADDEN: "THE N.P.D. VERY DETERMINEDLY OPENS THE FINAL PHASE OF ITS ELECTORAL STRUGGLE IN SAARBRUECKEN. FOR IT WAS, AFTER ALL, THE PEOPLE OF THE SAARLAND WHO WITH THEIR POLITICAL REPRESENTATIVES SET THE SIGNAL HERE MORE THAN TWELVE YEARS AGO. WHAT IS OFFERED AS PROOF ARE UTTERANCES AND FORMULATIONS OF PROGRAMMES WHICH IN OTHER COUNTRIES LIKE FRANCE, ITALY AND GREAT BRITAIN ARE CONSIDERED NATURAL OBLIGATIONS TOWARDS THE PEOPLE, THE NATION AND THE FATHERLAND. BUT ACCORDING TO THE POLITICAL FOLLOWERS OF THE FOLLOWERS OF THE LEFT HERE IN GERMANY, SUCH IDEALS ARE REGARDED AS "NEO-NAZI".

    Background: AT A RALLY TO LAUNCH HIS ELECTORAL CAMPAIGN FOR NEXT MONTH'S BONN PARLIAMENTARY ELECTIONS, ADOLF VON THADDEN, LEADER OF WEST GERMANY'S EXTREME RIGHTWING NATIONAL DEMOCRATIC PARTY (NPD), STATED YESTERDAY (THURSDAY) THAT HE WAS OPENING THE FINAL PHASE OF THE ELECTORAL STRUGGLE IN SAARBRUECKEN BECAUSE IT WAS THE SAARLAND THAT SHOWED THEM THE WAY TWELVE YEARS AGO. HE ALSO DEFENDED HIS NATIONALISTIC ARGUMENTS BY SAYING THAT POLITICAL PROGRAMMES WHICH ARE CONSIDERED THE NATURAL RIGHT IN COUNTRIES SUCH AS FRANCE, ITALY AND GREAT BRITAIN, WOULD BE CLASSIFIED AS "NEO NAZI" BY GERMANY'S LEFT.

    VON THADDEN, WHO IS DUE TO START A TOUR THROUGH WEST GERMANY DURING WHICH HE HOPES TO SWEEP HIMSELF AND HIS PARTY INTO THE FEDERAL PARLIAMENT IN BONN ON SEPTEMBER 28TH, WAS JEERED AND PELTED BY ANGRY MOBS WHO HAIL HIM AS ANOTHER HITLER. THE NPD LEADER PLANS TO USE A BULLET-PROOF LIMOUSINE AND JUDO-TRAINED BODYGUARDS DURING HIS ELECTION TOUR.

    IN HIS SPEECH, VON THADDEN SAID:
