Zweibrücken: Die Rechte holds torchlight march to honor war dead
On March 14, 2017, a memorial march took place in Zweibrücken to commemorate the those killed during the bombing of the city in 1945.
The mourners started the event with a greeting and a speech, which was sporadically framed by a miserable heap of antifa, after which the 40 or so participants began to march. After a short time, night fell and torches were ignited. The column continued its march without disturbance until it was back at the starting point. The memorial march ended after a short final speech.
There were no arrests or violence.
