After two nights of fascist terror in #Chemnitz, German at August 26 and 27, fascists took the streets of Chemnitz again on September 1 and September 7. On September 1 antifascists managed to block the fascist march.
One of the attackers against a migrant in Chemnitz on August 26 (Video in the tweet below) is now identified. The identified man worked for the private security company “Securitas” in a refugee lager (!!!) in Chemnitz. The security company fired the man after they identified him on the video as one of their employees. The news came out after the president of the German “Bundesverfassungsschutz” (Secret Intelligence Service), Hans-Georg Maaßen, came under pressure after he publicly doubted if the video was real. The migrant that was hunted in the video already filed charges against the attackers at a police station in Chemnitz. Several other refugees confirmed the video was not a fake and recorded on August 26, 2018.
Maaßen also said there were no hunts against migrants and leftwing people in Chemnitz. State prime minster of Saxony, Kretschmer (CDU) said the same and similar remarks were made by federal minister of interior Horst Seehofer of the now far right CSU. An internal document of Chemnitz police proofs Maaßen and the politicians who denied these hunts took place were wrong. The cops speak about two people with iron bars in front of the train station before the fascist gathering even started. Another part of the police document speaks about 100 masked fascists with stones who were “looking for migrants”. The cops are also speaking about 20 to 30 fascists who attacked the jewish restaurant “Shalom” in Chemnitz in their document. The fascists yelled “Leave Germany, you jewish pig!”
Federal minister of interior Horst Seehofer did not only deny the hunts against migrants took place, after Chemnitz he also said: “Migration is the mother of all problems”.
Its not easy for antifascists on the German territory right now. Especially not in some of the eastern parts of the German territory where many fascists have their strongholds. The CDU in Saxony can be considered as a far right party and turn a blind eye on the fascist problem. Former CDU prime minister Kurt Biedenkopf once said “Saxony is immune for fascism”. After the fascist mobilzations in Chemnitz the current prime minister of Saxony, Kretschmer (CDU) said that the state has to act against the refugee problem. Part of the problem are also liberals of the social-democratic SPD. The SPD is part of many state governments and part of Angela Merkel’s federal government. One of their (SPD) officials in Saxony cried after she heard the band Egotronic and saw “militant antifa’s” in Chemnitz on September 1.
The whole political landscape shifted to the right, with the “traditional” CDU, CSU and SPD removing taboos for the fascist AFD with racist campaigns, sharpened asylum laws and their backing of racist EU border policies: including the drownings at sea which killed tens of thousands. The federal government also backed the criminalization of life savers at the Mediterranean Sea.
In Koethen (in the state of Saxony-Anhalt) a 22 year old German died last Saturday after a dispute with two migrants. According to German daily “Die Welt”, the brother of the victim is a well known and multiple times convicted right extremist perpetrator. Again fascists took the streets, this time in Koethen. The vice-president of the SPD group in state parliament in Saxony-Anhalt, Andreas Steppuhn tweeted (Tweet below) that he thinks it’s wrong that Henriette Quade, member of state parliament for the leftwing party “Die Linke” called for counter protests against a fascist mobilization in Koethen.
On Sunday night 2500 fascists took the streets in Koethen. Mobilized in less than 24 hours in a province town with 26.000 residents. Journalists got attacked and fascists were openly calling for a national socialist state on the German territory. The fascists were chanting “National socialism now now now!” (Video in the tweet below).
People were applauding speakers like Thügida-Chief & former member of the fascist NPD David Köcker, who said things like “an eye for an eye, a tooth for a tooth (…) a race war against German people (…) Do we want to continue to be sheep or do we want to become wolves and shred them?” and advised to visit enemies in front of their houses. A clear threat but the cops did not interfere. When journo Martin Kaul of German daily TAZ was attacked, cops told Kaul to go home.
Kaul didn’t go home but kept streaming the fascist march. On his livestreams the fascists were chanting slogans against foreigners and “Germany for the Germans” all the time.
Buzzfeed reporter Marcus Engert was also attacked by fascist in Koethen on Monday night.
On Monday there was another fascist mobilization in Koethen. About 1000 fascists attended. One of the speakers was Jennifer Sommerfeld, she married in April 2018, until then her last name was Rodrian. Sommerfeld pointed at journalists and Henriette Quade and said “Those at the back are the first who will burn!” (Video below). Sommerfeld is daughter of Hans Robert Klug, former member of the federal board of the fascist party Die Rechte.
Jennifer is a member of the militant fascist organization “Nationalen Kollektivs Anhalt“. On the image below she is wearing a t-shirt HKNKRZ, which stands for “Hakenkreuz”, German for Swastika.
Apart from last nights fascist mobilzation in Koethen, fascists were also marching in Halle (200 attended) and in Dresden. The weekly Pegida demo was bigger than in the past few weeks.
For the coming few weeks fascists are mobilizing for a series of demonstrations.

The fascists try to spread the current wave of far right protests to the western part of the German territory with this mobilization. More information: here.
