Germany: Hamburg’s anti-fascists respond to Chemnitz riots

28 August 2018

Over two thousand people marched through the streets of Hamburg on Tuesday, in condemnation of recent right-wing riots in Chemnitz.

People held anti-racism banners calling on Hamburgers to fight fascism in Germany.

The demonstration, which was called by the ‘Interventionist Left’ movement, started at Rote Flora former theatre before ending at Park Fiction.

The Hamburg rally was a response to right-wing riots in the east German city of Chemnitz.

Translated from Dutch NOS TV today:

Paramilitary members in Chemnitz arrested for violence

In the German city Chemnitz fifteen men were arrested for committing violence after a demonstration of far-right groups in the inner city. They are members of what they themselves call a civil guard.

The men are said to have threatened guests at a birthday party last night after the demonstration and demanded from them that they show their ID cards. The party people alerted the police.

Then the fifteen men went on a manhunt in a park for people with a non-European appearance. They chased seven people and wounded an Iranian.

Racism and xenophobia

There have been tensions in the East German city for weeks …

On September 4 there was a concert against racism and xenophobia, where an estimated 65,000 people came.

From the BBC, 14 September 2018:

A German court has given a five-month jail term to a 34-year-old man who gave Hitler salutes during a protest in the eastern city of Chemnitz.

The man, a Chemnitz resident, attended a big far-right protest on 27 August …

Nazi signs and symbols, including the Hitler salute, are illegal in Germany.

On Thursday the Chemnitz court gave a suspended eight-month term to a 33-year-old man for making Hitler salutes.

He was also ordered to pay a €2,000 (£1,780; $2,326) fine.

The man jailed on Friday had a string of previous convictions, including for physical violence, so a suspended term was ruled out.

On March 9 [2019], neo-Nazis hosted a formal memorial service for their deceased idol Thomas Haller at Chemnitz Stadium. The service was held during a football match. The fireworks ignited by fans in the stands also cast a bright light on the network of political relationships that has made possible the rise of the far-right Alternative for Germany (AfD): here.
