Attempted murder of an antifascist

A few days ago, at 6pm on the evening of the 16th of May, at the corner of Tamka and Dobrej streets in Warsaw, an antifascist activist was attacked by two nazis, with clear intentions to kill him. They had been following him, and suddenly, one of them stepped in front on him and sprayed him with pepper gas. Then the other one stabbed him in his back with a 30cm long knife. Maciek fell on the ground and was kicked by the nazis for a while, with them shouting "We'll kill you, you leftist motherfucker!".

Maciek was taken to the hospital and underwent serious life-saving surgery (when he got to the hospital the doctors said that his condition was "critical"), and is now recovering. He still is not 100% recovered, he still has blood in his lungs. He says that he is sure that the attack was due to the recent appearance of his personal data on a nazi site called "redwatch" (www.redwatch.info) which publishes names, addresses, photos and other personal data of human rights activists in order to encourage violent attacks against them. Redwatch is a web-site that has existed for several months now and it promotes the idea of "killing the enemies of the race" and the organization behind this is a very radical neofascist "Blood and Honor". The problem is that Maciek didn't have medical insurance, so that he may be forced to pay up to 20,000 PLN (5000 euros).

APPEAL FOR HELP! We are collecting money to help him pay for his treatment. We kindly ask for your help. Please, send money to this account with a comment "For Maciek":
