Dear Savvas Matsas,

You do not know me, but I've heard about your struggle against the Fascists, which I find very admiring. My name is Jochem Barelds. I'm just a 24 years old student from the Netherlands, who is quite new to Socialism. I've been studying Fascism (and the so-called New Right) for a while now. I know what they have in common. I know what they want -- it's definitely not peace. They are a threat to society and humanity.
I'm compelled to write this e-mail, because I know that you're facing a legal charge from the hypocritical Golden Dawn Fascists, which is absolutely insane. They are the real criminals. This is confirmed by their criminal actions in the here and now, but also by history in general. If anyone should be charged, it's them. They have no right to do this.

I can't believe that this is happening. You shouldn't have to deal with this. It's a sign that the Fascists have already gotten too far and that fighting them has never been so urgent. You were right (and very brave) to call for a fight against the Fascists. It had to be someone. Someone had to do it. There is no other way to defeat them (and defeat them we must).

I can't do much except write this e-mail to show my solidarity with your struggle (which is actually OUR struggle). I know that you're probably very busy right now. I don't expect anything in return. I'm just sending this e-mail in order to show my solidarity and support your struggle. I rarely use my real name when sending e-mails to people I don't know, but I'm obligated to do this now.

Stay strong and keep up the fight.

Greetings,
Jochem Barelds from the Netherlands
