Three men carrying neo-Nazi symbols violently attacked a man in the park of Santiago. The victim appeared to be gay and Jewish. His nationality and religion made the thugs attack him. He was wearing the T-shirt with Israeli flag, which was presented to him by his mother.
The attackers abused the victim verbally and cut his legs and arms with a blade. “I had forty stitches on my arm. Some will be forever. Just for being Jewish. The pain overwhelms me,” he told the Movement for Integration and Homosexual Liberation (MOVILH). The group denounced the attack, calling it “an anti-Semitic and homophobic aggression.” “We repudiate this attack of hate, which deserves all legal and social sanction. Of course we will support the legal actions that the Jewish community decides to initiate, who have always supported and shown solidarity with the victims of homophobia,” declared the MOVILH movement on its web page. “We can not allow more victims of hate in out country, nothing justifies them.”
