Germany: Thousands form ‘living border’ against refugees

People across the eastern state of Saxony took part in demonstrations against refugees being taken into Germany at the weekend, with thousands gathering on the Czech frontier to form a “living border”.

Up to 2,500 people assembled peacefully in Sebnitz, directly on the frontier with the Czech republic, to take part in the “living border” demonstration.
Calls to take part in the action had come from people connected with the Pegida (“Patriotic Europeans against the Islamization of the West”) movement, which is strongest in the Saxon capital Dresden.

    Good for them, now if they can only wake up their fellow countrymen before it is too late. I had a conversation with a German colleague yesterday and worked it into the conversation. He seemed to get it and was frustrated.

    • I believe the rank and file do not embrace Merkel’s silly policies.

    A Saxon contingent helped raise the siege of Vienna in 1683.

      Thing is, Merkel has thrown her lot in with those laying siege to Vienna.

    They need to arm themselves now.
