Why is DreamHost supporting militant Nazis from Berlin?
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: http://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(!):
http://www.tagesspiegel.de/berlin/mehr-r...32932.html

The Nazis even burned down an alternative clothing-store that was listed on nw-berlin.net:
http://www.tagesspiegel.de/berlin/wut-au...68984.html

On the same website the neonazis gather pictures and private information about lawyers, politicians and journalists they think are working against racism.
http://www.nw-berlin.net/category/recherche/

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):

http://blog.zeit.de/stoerungsmelder/2010...irken_2881

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.

As far as I understand your Terms of use policy, (http://www.dreamhost.com/aup.html) these Nazis shouldn’t get hosted by Dreamhost.

“Customer may only use DreamHost Web Hosting's Server for lawful purpose. Transmission of any material in violation of any Country, Federal, State or Local regulation is prohibited. To this effect, child pornography is strictly prohibited as well as housing any copyrighted information (to which the customer does not hold the copyright or an appropriate license) on DreamHost Web Hosting's Server. Also, using DreamHost's servers or network to conspire to commit or support the commission of illegal activities is forbidden as well.”

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
Elisabeth Schröter from Berlin

I think, you should think about your moral responsability and close this nazi-site.

They have a "red watch"-list on their site, where they publish photos of political enemies, like left politicians.
They have a list of alternative shops and clubs, and many of them got attacked from nazis, after publishing this list.
Und they are pushing a campaign called "Ausländer raus" ("Imigrants out"), which is clearly racist und is combined with attacks against imigrants.

Please, close this site und prevent hate-crimes in Berlin.

RE: Why is DreamHost supporting militant Nazis from Berlin?
It seems to be the same discussion as we had with the austrian neo-nazis. These neo-nazis are using Dreamhost to organize their hate-crimes and to avoid the provisions of their national laws.
As other people before said in that discussion I think Dreamhost should stop supporting these neonazi criminals. And in addition I think that you can`t argue with "Freedom of speech", if they publish Most-Wanted-Lists of critical journalists and photographers, if they also publish private informations about lawyers and politicians. First and foremost if the consequences are that people from these list already got attacked by neonazis.
Finally Dreamhost should stop supporting these neonazi-criminals by giving them the chance to organize themselves anonymously spreading their hate in the world and preparing crime.

So much for that

RE: Why is DreamHost supporting militant Nazis from Berlin?
Despite being a rather small group Nationaler Widerstand Berlin and their comrades poses a real threat to everyone who doesn't fit into their racist and fascist view of the world. After numerous other far right groups in and around Berlin have been prohibited and/or put on trial for terrorism NW Berlin is one of the most important organizations that still exist in this spectrum. Almost every organized act of right wing terrorism and violence in Berlin is linked to NW Berlin in one way or another. In the past months numerous locations and people have been attacked and/or threatened. In one case (the torching of M99 shop in Berlin-Kreuzberg) only the immediate reaction of neighbors who started fighting the fire prevented the deaths of numerous people living in the house above the shop, as fire fighters and police told the press afterwards.

I seriously cannot imagine that Dreamhost wants to be a part of this. So please take action and shut down the website of this right wing white supremacist terrorist group!

This site definetly stinks, covered by your(DHost) "freedom of speech" these german neo-nazis can organize to commit hate-crimes, and oppression of others who don't fit into their scheme of aryan master-race.

In a part of german city Berlin, called Neukölln nazis destroyed and damaged a couple of bars, offices an meeting-points according to a Hate-List published on the domain nw-berlin.net. Also attacks on non-neonazi people which happen, very often appear on that domain first, so that a tight relation between the attackers who often try to kill their victims and the moderators of the site nw-berlin.net is very evident.


It is a crime that Dreamhost supports these movements by passively letting them do their hateful things and actively looks away from the things happening.


Shut it down now !

no comment on the freedom of speech part, bit it's interesting that all of these posts come from new accounts - each post represents each author's first. i wonder if they all come from the same IP address as well..

I don't think so especially having regard to myself. But does it inflect any of the posted facts? Tell me any reason why Dreamhost should keep this site online...

RE: Why is DreamHost supporting militant Nazis from Berlin?
The important point is that what these people are writing is right and correct. Everything else is secondary.

The idea that all of them could come from the same IP is rather improbable given the differences in style and language level in the various postings...
