The Facebook page administrators of the Maritim hotel in Cologne, Germany have a lot of work ahead of them these days. After it was announced that the next federal party convent of the German fascist AFD party will take place on April 22nd and 23th in the Maritim hotel at Heumarkt in Cologne, many people from Cologne and hotel guests complained on the Facebook page of the hotel.
In many postings, people expressed their lack of understanding of why the Cologne Maritim hotel will host the federal party convent of the racist AFD party.
Many business customers announced they will not come to the Maritim hotel anymore. There were several comments on the Maritim Cologne Facebook page that there are many CSD and carnival events taking place in the hotel. People wrote that these events are a blatant contrast to the AFD party convent.
The management of the Cologne Maritim hotel do not answer the critical comments on their Facebook page. Instead they have the administrators delete these comments. But new criticizing comments are posted over and over again.
Similar critical comments were also posted on hotel rating websites, some of the comments were blocked by the Maritim hotel. We assume that many foreign guests of the Maritim hotel will not like the xenophobic bating of the AFD. We will try to find out what they think of the fact that the AFD can spread their propaganda from the Maritim hotel in Cologne.
The Maritim hotel chain, headquartered in Bad Salzuflen, Germany, has hosted many AFD events like party convents, election parties and discussions about the party program in the past years.
There were AFD events in the Maritim hotels in Bremen, Stuttgart, Berlin, Gelsenkirchen, Lübeck, Braunlage but also in Cologne. A simple Google search brought several hits. The Maritim hotel management did not react and has rejected protests against the hosting of AFD events in their hotels.
We are curious how long the management of Maritim will ignore these kind of protests.
We hope that many people will continue to express theis displeasure about the decision of the Maritim hotel to host the AFD federal party convent.
