Erfurt, 5th feburary: a farce. The fascists of the AfD escort thomas Kemmerich, who had actually already stepped back, to the post of minister president. Planned and executed hand in hand with the right wing block of the civic camp, the CDU.
Thüringen writes history. Already in 1924 the fascists carried the right wing civic „Thüringer Ordnungsbunt“ into gouvernmernt. Non-conforming teachers were stripped of their posts, the Bauhaus fled to Dessau and the NSDAP nurtured itself in this same Thüringen until they could post their first fascist minister in 1930.
Civic Democracy fell apart and is doing so again. The outcrie appears great, while the Downfall, the emergency status of the Republik, has been going on for 30 years.
No, we did not have to experience this farce, it was in our hands. The wheel of history was handed to the workers and the youth 75 years ago – the red army of the soviet union gave the workers and youths in this country the possibility „to build themselves a good life under their own leadership“ (Bertold Brecht).
He who lets the wheel of history be taken back out of their hands will harvest the old wheel of those long dead. The old wheel, Germannes and Co, was already returning at the time of the German Democratic Republic (DDR). The foundations would have been there to never again permit the old greater Germany return. In spite of their antifascism, which we must hold high, the old voice grew ever louder, until the old fascists and the new could conquer the DDR 30 years ago. They did not hesitate.
As the FDJ, founded 1936 in exile against German fascism, we greet every demonstration against fascism – but we call for even more necessary immediate resistance which does not end on the sofa.
To end fascism, we must topple capitalism!

We ask our comrades in the FDJ to continue to struggle for the overthrow of capitalism and the construction of the new socialist and communist society. We send our best wishes and solidarity to the FDJ and the progressive youth of annexed German Democratic Republic.

die Jugend der Arbeiterpartei (Irland) sendet der Freien Deutschen Jugend (FDJ) anlässlich des 70. Jahrestags der Gründung der Deutschen Demokratischen Republik (DDR) herzliche Grüße und Solidarität. Die Zeiten sind heute für die sozialistische Jugend in Ostdeutschland sehr beunruhigend. Das Wiederauftreten des Faschismus in den letzten Jahren verdankt seinen Erfolg den gemeinsamen Aktionen Konterrevolution und Imperialismus der Bundesrepublik Deutschland. Die Jugend der Arbeiterpartei grüßt die FDJ in diesen schwierigen Zeiten. Wir fordern unsere Genossen in der FDJ auf, weiterhin für den Sturz des Kapitalismus und den Aufbau der neuen sozialistischen und kommunistischen Gesellschaft zu kämpfen. Wir senden der FDJ und der fortschrittlichen Jugend der annektierten Deutschen Demokratischen Republik unsere besten Wünsche und unsere Solidarität.
In kameradschaftlicher Solidarität,
