More police deployed to Bautzen after riots

Additional police are being sent to Bautzen ahead of anti-migrant demonstrations planned in the eastern German town this weekend. Authorities are hoping to prevent a repeat of violent clashes between locals and refugees.

Bautzen police chief Uwe Kilz said the security presence would be noticeably increased in the small Saxon town, which is bracing for upcoming right-wing rallies on Sunday.

Police said around 350 mainly far-right supporters assembled in the central Kornmarkt square on Thursday night, but the gathering remained largely peaceful.

“The ugly scenes we saw in the square the previous evening weren’t there this time,” Kilz said, although police registered eight offenses for assault, the use of anti-constitutional symbols and a seditious chant.

    And the hammer of the totalitarian State comes down ever harder on ordinary citizens – how will Germans who still wish to be free and German respond?

    • I hope by revolution.

    “They also found themselves on the receiving end of violence, and used
    pepper spray and clubs after migrants threw bottles and other objects at

    It sounds like the migrants attacked protestors and then when the protestors defended themselves the cops stepped in to protect the muslims

      Whereupon the grateful muslims attacked the cops.

    “Saxony’s integration minister, Petra Köpping, acknowledged that eastern Germany was more prone to anti-migrant sentiment than other parts of the country…”
    Unlike the western part of the country these people have seen the real face of totalitarianism, and have not beenlulled to sleep by political correctness and soft marxism

    I am pushing the idea that rather than “far right” such people should be called “popular right”. As opposed to conservative elite.

      ‘Populist right’ would be more accurate.

      As in “we the people”…….

    “. . . a seditious chant. “! I’m clutching my pearls as we speak! What’s next? Mocking limericks? Political cartoons?

    At least this article refers to the good people of Bautzen as far-right supporters. Yesterday they were neo-nazis.
