Default Nationalist Party to Launch Web Radio

Prague, Aug 14 (CTK) - The Vlast (Homeland) Internet radio station connected with the Czech extra-parliamentary ultra-right National Party (NS) will start broadcasting this month, the daily Lidove noviny (LN) reports today.

The programme of the web radio that will resume broadcasting after a two-year pause will offer rather racist songs, alternative political newscasts as well as traditional Czech fairy-tales and poetry, LN writes.

"We will keep playing politically incorrect songs on our radio. However, they are not racist from our point of view. On the contrary, you cannot find neo-Nazi oriented bands on our playlist," NS spokesman Pavel Sedlacek told the paper.

LN also writes that up to 20 people will participate in the radio station's operation which is to cost some 15,000 crowns a month.

All costs are to be covered by the NS that plans to use the radio ahead of the general election due in 2010, for instance.

LN recalls that the web radio had offered music with racist lyrics and pre-election speeches of the party candidates in 2005 and 2006.

After repeated criticism of the songs' lyrics, the radio broadcasting was terminated over the lack of finances, the paper writes.

It adds that experts in right-wing extremism do not believe the Vlast web radio will last long. They say the NS thereby only wants to promote itself.

The civilian counter-intelligence lists the National Party among right-wing extremist entities.

The party members drew attention in the past by their controversial statements about Romanies.
