The ‘1st Chemnitzer Sternmarsch “has paralyzed the city of Chemnitz Saturday afternoon. Starting from five different locations, the demonstrators marched through the city to the town marketplace.
The protesters were from an alliance of right wing & nationalist groups.
There, the Chemnitz City Councillor Martin Kohlmann delivered a speech.
Dirk White (43), the protest organizer, had this to say: “We want to show that we are dissatisfied with the policy of the Federal Government. We are mainly against asylum seekers.”
As for counter-demonstrations, there were none. The spokesman of the group “Chemnitz Nazifrei” Martin Bott, said: “We lack any support from the community.”
The next protest is scheduled to take place April 9th.
