Anti-fascism is something you have to do yourself! – On February 20, 2020, more than a thousand people took part in a gathering organized by “Stuttgart against the Right” to protest the far right terrorist attack in Hanau. Afterwards, about 600 of them took to the streets in rage against Nazi terror and its systematic trivialisation and moved across the main shopping street to city hall. On the way, pyrotechnics were lit and people broke through a police line, which was supposed to protect city hall.
Activists stormed the already closed Stuttgart city hall through an open emergency exit and visited the offices of the “Alternative for Germany”(AFD) on the third floor. Among other things, posters with slogans such as “Racist hate leads to racist terror” and “You are responsible for Hanau” were pasted on their door and in the hallway.
Our thoughts are with those affected and their relatives. We mourn for the people who were killed out of racist motives. All the more important was the broad mobilisation, the big spontaneous march and storming city hall.
AfD and Co are politically responsible for Hanau, Halle and all those other acts. It is time to confront them accordingly.
The times in which it was enough to stand up and just talk are over. When if not now? Who if not us?
