Last night the city of Munich and “Bellevue di Monaco” hosted a free concert on Königsplatz, Munich. As Dieter Reiter – Munich mayor – stated: the free concert is a unique happening to thank Munich citizens for their extraordinary help as refugees started arriving in Munich and also to welcome all refugees that made it here yet. Then Dieter Reiter himself opened the concert with the band “Dreiviertelblut” playing a song addressing all people filled with hatred against refugees and fear (such as Horst Seehofer): “mia san ned nua mia” [roughly translated: it’s not only us]

After that various bands and activists followed to adress people that gathered on Königsplatz – between bands a minute of silence was held to also remember every refugee that has died trying to flee to Europe. I found this minute of silence quite touching:

All together the evening showed a great sign that refugees are welcome in Munich – and as the frontman of the band “donots” stated nazis are definitly not.

Michael Mittermaier – local comedian – also commented on PEGIDA Munich’s statement about him – approving them that he is politically left oriented, but joking about them even existing.
