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.

Jana Šedivcová: Are all Czech children cat killers and all Romani children flamingo killers? Collective blame is unacceptable

17.3.2017 15:03
When I heard the news that children had killed one rare flamingo and seriously harmed another at the zoo in Jihlava, it made me dizzy. I felt the same when, the next day, a video appeared "on the net" of other children in another town who almost killed a cat by hanging it.

Patrik Banga: I'm for collecting ethnic data in all areas, but the majority can't tell who is Romani

17.3.2017 10:17
Ivan Langr (Greens), Vice-Mayor of Liberec in charge of social affairs, has rebelled against the methodology recommended for estimating the number of Romani people in the regions that he has received from the Office of the Government of the Czech Republic. As has already happened here more than once, Langr has sparked a tempestuous
