Secret anti-racist shirts covertly distributed to neo-Nazis

Secret anti-racist shirts covertly distributed to neo-Nazis: "Anti-racist activists snuck trick t-shirts into a music festival with a large neo-Nazi turnout; the shirts bore a crypto-racist slogan that faded on first washing to reveal a plea to reconsider 'militant right-wing lifestyle.'

The shirts, which bore a skull and crossbones symbol and the word 'Hardcore Rebels,' faded upon washing to reveal a hidden message: 'What happened to your shirt can happen to you. We can help you break with right-wing extremism.'

The T-shirts were the work of Exit Deutschland, a group that helps young people transition out of militant right-wing lifestyles.

'With these T-shirts we wanted to make ourselves known among right-wingers, especially amongst young ones who are not yet fully committed to the extreme right,' said Exit founder Bernd Wagner.
