LAS VEGAS, June 22, 2012 -- /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- For the 3rd annual World Swastika Rehabilitation Day, Raelians, together with representatives from the Buddhist and Hindu religions, are planning to carry out major events in cities throughout the Americas, Australia and Africa on Saturday, June 23 (see http://www.raelpress.org/news.php?item.277.1).
In Europe, Raelians from Germany and its surrounding countries have decided to use this opportunity to inform the German public about the swastika's history, since most Germans completely ignore the swastika's good standing as a very ancient symbol of peace for Buddhists and a symbol of good luck for numerous other cultures.
The city of Karlsruhe, where the event is to be held, has nevertheless banned Raelians from displaying any type of swastika except for the Raelian symbol, in which a swastika intertwines with a six-pointed star.
"According to an order issued by the Karlsruhe government on June 15, the display of swastikas would lead to 'an immediate danger for the public safety and order' (see http://www.proswastika.org/download.php?view.3)," explained Thomas Kaenzig, coordinator of World Swastika Rehabilitation Day. "
