The Backstage in Neuhausen has a for the 1. May planned a concert with the Bands MGLA and Deus Mortem to be cancelled. Hans-Georg Stocker, managing Director of the cultural center stated, in a press release. Stocker in response to a letter that the "Left Alliance against anti-Semitism Munich" had spread. The activists had accused the two Bands of anti-Semitism and racism, and demanded to cancel the show.
The Backstage was only in the short term, that members of the support band Deus Mortem would also play in the Polish, anti-Semitic neo-Nazi band Infernal war. Infernal
against the band MGLA there were allegations, "we could not check, however, until now, comprehensively," - said in the press statement. However, it had been already crossed a "red line" of the Band, by inviting anti-Semites and to the stage. The statement of MGLA, is a non-political Band, don't count for the Backstage. A stance against racism, anti-Semitism and right-wing extremism was not a question of political attitude, but must be an "expression of humanity". The Backstage can not check, despite intensive efforts, all of the Bands, "completely", to occur on the site. Here you had to rely on help from the outside - on the main bands, who know your guests the bands better and the agencies with the artists familiar.
