Scores of nationalists marched through the streets of Cologne on Saturday,  January 14th, to denounce the German government’s refugee and asylum policies.

The protest was organised by the local branch of the far-right National Democratic Party of Germany (NPD).

Counter-protesters attempted to disrupt the rally shouting “Nazis out!.” A large police presence was deployed to prevent possible clashes. Several protesters were detained during the rally; no injures were reported.

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 Muss Weg!” Hundreds protest in Dresden on German Unity Day

Hundreds of protesters organized by PEGIDA came together to oppose Chancellor Angela Merkel & her immigration policies as German leaders gathered in the eastern city of Dresden on Monday to celebrate the anniversary of the country’s reunification 26 years ago.

The protesters shouted “Merkel must go!” and “traitor!,” as the chancellor left the city’s Frauenkirche church after a morning ecumenical service.

More protests are planned for this Monday.

Dresden, the state capital of Saxony, is home to the anti-Islam group Patriotic Europeans against the Islamization of the West. Known by its German acronym PEGIDA, the group has become a magnet for far-right and anti-immigrant sentiment.

The area surrounding Dresden has seen popular resistance against migrants and refugees since the influx began, with riots and arson attacks taking place in other towns in the state of Saxony.

Security has been tightened for the three days of events marking 26 years since German reunification, specifically after unknown perpetrators set fire to three police cars in Dresden on Saturday night.


Alternative fuer Deutschland Takes 21% in Mecklenburg-West Pomerania Regional Election

Angela Merkel’s ruling CDU party has been beaten into third place by an anti-immigrant and anti-Islam party in elections in a north-eastern German state.

The Alternative fuer Deutschland (AfD) party took just under 21% of the vote behind the centre-left SPD’s 30%.

The German chancellor’s CDU was backed by only 19% of voters, its worst ever result in the state.

The vote was seen as a key test before German parliamentary elections in 2017.

Before the vote in Mecklenburg-West Pomerania, in the former East Germany, all of Germany’s other parties ruled out forming a governing coalition with the AfD. But the party, formed only three years ago, is already represented in nine of Germany’s 16 state parliaments.

This is humiliating for Angela Merkel – not least because this was on home turf. Mrs Merkel’s constituency is in Mecklenburg-West Pomerania.

Alternative fuer Deutschland’s anti immigrant and increasingly strident anti-Islam message has a powerful appeal to people concerned about integration and worried about domestic security.

The AfD, initially an anti-euro party, has enjoyed a rapid rise as the party of choice for voters dismayed by Mrs Merkel’s policy.

The rally was heavily attended by PEGIDA supporters, who chanted “we are the people” over the jeers of antifa counter protesters.

There were no reports of clashes between the two sides.

This demonstration comes just after the AfD, a kosher anti-islam nationalist party, was polled with 15% support, the highest of any nationalist party after the fall of the Third Reich.
