Dear staff of DreamHost,
I am very interested to know, why your company supports a german neonazi-group that is responsible for several brutal attacks on foreign people and journalists. They call themselves “Nationaler Widerstand Berlin” (National Resistance Berlin). The Website is: www.nw-berlin.net
(other than in the USA, nazi-propaganda and a call for racist violence is in germany not covered by free speech, but a criminal act.)
This group is currently starting a racist campaign against migrants. On the website you can also find quotes of nazi-leader Adolf Hitler. The latest racist attack in berlin was probably organized by the same people. One man got severely hurt because the Nazis hit him with a broken bottle-neck(!):
The Nazis even burned down an alternative clothing-store that was listed on nw-berlin.net:
On the same website the neonazis gather pictures and private information about lawyers, politicians and journalists they think are working against racism.
Some of these men already got attacked by Nazis. More than ten people pressed charges against the website for publishing their pictures, but the police is incapable the identify the owners, cause the site DreamHost is hosting runs under a fake name with a PO box-adress in the states.
Here are some news-articles about the website and the Berlin naziscene (sorry, only in german):
There was even a discussion about the Website in the Berlin-Parlament. But since DreamHost guarantees the anonymity of the owners of NW-berlin.net, the police can’t do anything.

I can only urge you to shut down the website in order to stop the violence brought to Berlin by the “Nationaler Widerstand” or at least please give the information you got about the site-owners to the German authorities.
Thanks a lot for your help
