People demonstrate against neo-Nazi marches in Germany, police order neo-Nazis to change their route

Germany, 28.3.2011 15:31, (ROMEA)

Last Saturday demonstrations against marches by right-wing extremists took place in the German towns of Brandenburg, Lübeck and Trier. More than 1 000 people participated. DPA reports that police did not record any larger incidents of disorder.

In the North German town of Lübeck about 1 200 people convened to express their disagreement with the neo-Nazi action, which was intended to commemorate the Allied bombing of the town in March 1942. Police reported that the extreme-right promoters had to change the route of their march for "tactical police reasons".

Several hundred people took to the streets of Trier, in the west of the country, because of an action there by the extreme-right National-Democratic Party of Germany (NPD). Police arrested five activists for throwing firecrackers and stones at the NPD march and attacking the police with pepper spray. Another 24 misdemeanors were handed by police on the scene through negotiation. No one was injured.

In Brandenburg, about 80 right-wing extremists demonstrated for the release of Holocaust denier Horst Mahler, who is serving one year in prison there. Police searched the neo-Nazis' cars, found hatchets and knives, and fined five people. About 50 people participated in the counter-demonstration, but there was no disorder.

The report, among other things, touches on the growth of extremist sentiment in society and the situation of Romani people in Slovakia.

Commentary: The value of life in Central Europe depends on skin color

17.6.2017 11:12
The feeling that anything at all can be done to Romani people with impunity has long been sustained in the Czech Republic, Slovakia, and other countries of our region by the approach taken by state bodies and institutions. The recent news from Zborov is not the first time that Slovak Police officers have raided a Romani settlement and committed groundless violence there, but this time there is evidence of their behavior in the form of video footage.
