Nationalist threat growing in Latvia

Around 12,000 people took part in a torchlight procession organised by the nationalist VL-TB/LNNK party to mark the country's independence day on November 18. The social researcher Klāvs Sedlenieks explains the reasons behind this demonstration on web portal Tvnet: "The national pathos attracted plenty of attention this year. ... A similar mood can be observed in Russia, and also in Greece and Hungary. It's related to the economic problems. People think that they have done something wrong, and this generates a dangerously inflamed mood. When 12,000 take part in a torchlight procession and chant 'We are Latvians!' it's a dangerous situation. Since the referendum through which Latvian was stipulated as the one official language attempts have been made to convey the impression that the Latvians are facing a threat and they must join forces against it." (22/11/2013)


Not in haunts of marble chill,
Temples drear where ancients trod,—
Nay, in oaks on woody hill
Lives and moves the German God.
