Berlin, Germany: Nationalist Demonstration For Free Speech

Reposted from: http://www.newobserveronline.com/2017/05/free-speech-crackdown-german-justice.html

About 50 members of the German Identitarian movement stormed the offices of the Justice Ministry in Berlin on Friday in protest against a massive crackdown on freedom of speech in Germany.
The group arrived in a rental truck carrying a 32-foot ladder and tried to climb onto the roof of the ministry, while throwing pyrotechnics, a police spokesman told national daily Die Welt.
“They were driving a truck, with a big ladder on it and wanted to enter the ministry,” an eyewitness told the paper.
Earlier, an unannounced demonstration called for Justice Minister Heiko Maas to step down, and for the borders of the European Union to be strengthened, with some participants wearing uniforms in the style of the former East Germany’s People’s Police.
Police managed to stop the rush, and the leader of the group was arrested.
A few hours later, a group of 20 protesters remained outside the barricaded ministry, erecting a banner criticizing the prohibition of opinion.
On Friday morning Maas introduced a draft law to the Bundestag which requires social media networks to remove any references to the mass nonwhite invasion of Germany, and which forbids the spreading of any news which has not come through channels or journalists which the government has officially endorsed.
Ironically, this is all being done to “protect democracy,” the law’s proponents say, blatantly ignoring the fact that they are in fact suppressing democracy.
The proposed legislation is so outrageous that even the normally pro-establishment liberal party, the Free Democrats (FDP) have rejected it, calling it “a threat to free speech.”
The populist Alternative for Germany (AfD) has announced that it will file a complaint with the Constitutional Court should the draft become law. Both of these parties are likely to be part of the Bundestag after September’s national elections.
A large number of other organizations have also announced their opposition to the law. When the cabinet approved the draft law in April, a number of these groups joined together to issue a “declaration of freedom of speech” rejecting the legislation.
The groups include Wikimedia Germany, journalist organizations such as Reporters without Borders, internet activists like the Chaos Computer Club, and several lawyers who question whether the law would stand up to judicial challenges. Even Facebook Germany announced that it would oppose the law through legal means.

Berlin, Germany: Protests Erupt Outside Chancellor’s Office

PROTESTS have erupted outside Angela Merkel’s office by campaigners saying the German Chancellor “has blood on her hands”.

 Crowds wave German flags as they call for Angela Merkel to step down

Crowds have gathered outside the Chancellory in Berlin just two days after the  as a series of protests, counter-demonstrations and vigils are held across the city.

Supporters of the Alternative for Deutschland (AfD) party are demonstrating outside ’s office.

Placards reading “Merkel must go” were waved in the crowd as supporters carried the German flag and lit candles for the dead.

Other placards read “protect borders” and “On Merkel’s hands is the blood of her people”.

People were also seen holding placards with the logo of the far right Identitarian movement (Identitaere Bewegung) reading “It’s enough” and “How many times again”.

A small counter-demonstration also broke out in front of the Chancellory in Berlin as protests erupted elsewhere in the city.

It comes two days after 12 people were killed in the German capital when a truck ploughed into a busy Christmas market.

Many are believed to belong to hard-right groups such as the NPD.

It comes as AfD party leader Franke Petry said Mrs Merkel is finished in the wake of the terror attack.

She said the the country was no longer safe and “radical Islamic terrorism has struck in the heart of Germany” as ISIS claimed responsibility for the massacre.

Ms Petry told the Telegraph: “This is a terrible day, but it is not completely unexpected given the warnings from the security authorities, including about the prospect of an attack on Berlin.

“We cannot go on denying there is a link between Merkel’s migration policy and these attacks, or we will prepare that ground for more of these attacks.”

The anti-migrant party has seen support surge in local elections as the German Chancellor fights to take office for a fourth term.

Merkel Must Go: 600 Nationalists March In Berlin

A demonstrator wears a jacket with the writing "Patriot Deutschland" (lt. Germany Patriot) during the fourth demonstration of the right-wing populist alliance 'Wir fuer Deutschland' in Berlin, Germany, Saturday,  Nov. 5, 2016.

November 6th, Berlin, Germany.

600 hardcore nationalists marched through the streets to protest against Angela Merkel’s refugee policy, & mass immigration in general.

Gone were the middle age bourgeoisie that had been making up the bulk of the anti-Merkel opposition as of late. These were almost all fighting age men & women, mostly from the working class areas of Berlin & east Germany. Representatives from many different groups were among them; Pegida supporters, football hooligans, Generation Identity, skinheads & “Reich Citizens”(German equivalent of Sovereign Citizens in America) were present, among others.

Also a few Reichsbürger of the "federal state Schwarzburg" are among the right-wing demonstrators at the Berlin Hauptbahnhof.

Berlin antifa organized a counter demonstration of similar size. Unable to directly confront the patriots, they settled for attempting a breakthrough of police lines. They failed, and 43 of them ended up being arrested in the process.

The protest concluded after nightfall, with no arrests or injuries on the nationalist side.

 

Berlin, Germany: Soft Nationalist Alternative fur Deutschland Takes 14% In Local Election

96753807_Petry_FOREIGN-large_trans++vxig_go-nndg4gfA2VqsCpbL0n9KhPptEd_3c3bhkrs

Berlin (AFP) – German Chancellor Angela Merkel’s party suffered a historic loss in Berlin state elections Sunday while the right-wing populist AfD gained fresh support, riding a wave of popular anger over her open-door refugee policy.

The anti-Islam Alternative for Germany party won around 14 percent, according to public broadcasters’ projections, in the capital which has long prided itself on being a hip, anti-white and multicultural city.

The strong AfD result, thanks to support especially in the vast tower block districts in Berlin’s former communist east, meant it has now won seats in ten of Germany’s 16 states, a year ahead of national elections.

Merkel’s centre-right Christian Democratic Union (CDU) won only 17.5 percent — its worst post-war result in the city, before or after the 1989 fall of the Berlin Wall — likely spelling the end of its term as junior coalition partner to the Social Democrats (SPD), who won around 22 percent.

Berlin’s SPD Mayor Michael Mueller had dramatically warned before the polls that a strong AfD result would be “seen throughout the world as a sign of the resurgence of the right and of Nazis in Germany”. One can only hope.

– ‘Zero to double-digits’ –

The vote marked another milestone for the upstart AfD, which has campaigned on a nationalist platform, similar to France’s National Front or far-right populists in Austria and the Netherlands.

“From zero to double-digits, that’s a first for Berlin,” cheered the AfD’s top Berlin candidate, Georg Pazderski, predicting that the electorate would next year kick out Merkel’s national right-left grand coalition.

“We’ve arrived in the capital,” said the party’s co-leader Beatrix von Storch, hailing the “huge success”.

Generation Identity Occupies Brandenburg Gate in Protest Against Immigration

BERLIN — Pro-White activists from the German branch of Generation Identity have staged an hour-long demonstration atop Berlin’s Brandenburg Gate as crowds of tourists milled around the iconic monument.

The protesters unfurled a banner Saturday that reads  “Secure Borders – Secure Future.”

Police said 15 people were briefly detained over the protest and are likely to face charges of trespassing, harassment and breaching laws on public assembly.

Germany’s domestic intelligence agency said this month it was putting the far-right group under observation because it aims to subvert democracy.

Leaflets scattered by the group revealed the government is trying to replace Germany’s population with Muslim immigrants.

To all those involved, I say: great work & best of luck to those arrested by the traitorous police. The sacrifice of your freedom will not be in vain.

Thousands of Germans take to the streets of Berlin against the traitor Angela Merkel

“Merkel Must Go!”

This was the rallying cry of thousands of German patriots who took to the streets of Berlin yesterday afternoon.

A crowd claimed to be as large has 10,000 had gathered outside Berlin’s Washington Square listening to speeches and chanting “Merkel muss weg!”

The protesters blame the Chancellor for the recent spate of terrorist attacks in the country and across Europe.

The hashtag #MerkelMussWeg was trending on twitter before the event, reaching hundreds of thousands of people worldwide.

Average German patriots mingled freely with hardcore National Socialists as the two became indistinguishable in their calls for the resignation of the traitor Angela Merkel & a stop to immigration into the Fatherland.

As usual, anti-white counter protesters were on hand to demand the genocide of the German people. However, they were greatly outnumbered this time! Only around 1,000 came out to oppose the patriots, & this motley assortment of communists and foreigners was kept behind police lines away from the actual protest.

There were no reports of arrests or injuries from either side.

Generation Identity holds first protest in Berlin

About 200 members & supporters of the German branch of Generation Identity took to the streets of Berlin yesterday to protest against immigration.

They marched under the slogan “uprising against injustice and for our future.” (It sounds better in German.)

The purpose of the protest was  to “peacefully draw attention to the current developments that threaten our country and Europe alike”,such as the “EU bureaucracy” and “irresponsible policy of mass immigration”.

An antifa counter protest staged an ineffective sit in, but failed to stop the march.

Police kept the two sides apart, & unfortunately there was no violence.

Also present for the nationalist side were members of Pegida & reportedly even the AfD, all marching under the Generation Identity banner.
