On the historically very charged date 9th of november – 77 years ago the Pogrom Night took place & 92 years ago Hitler tried to take over power at Odeonsplatz – Munich citizens block PEGIDA from marching. Approximately 3000 citizens sat down and surrounded the racist mob of at the most 200 followers of the PEGIDA movement in Munich. As usual PEGIDA was not able to cope with freedom of press and Stefan Werner – one of the founders of the “PEGIDA München e.V.” – constantly tried to harass photographers and video-journalists. Once again convicted neonazi-terrorist Thomas Schatt & comrades were able to leave the PEGIDA cage and attack counter protestors. I have published a video on YouTube reporting on last night:
Additionally a collection of some photographs:
600 have gathered on historically charged Odeonsplatz to demonstrate against neonazism, antisemitism and PEGIDA.
Sign demanding Russia to step in and “help” the German government in 2015.
PEGIDA gathers at Münchner Freiheit – only about 200 have come. One of the founding members states: “I am not going to walk on this day – but you all can”
A girl holds up a sign saying: “München ist bunt”
PEGIDA route blocked in every direction
PEGIDA route blocked by civil protestors.
PEGIDA speaks as the road is blocked.
Activists enter the PEGIDA cage and show a banner stating: “It’s also my country – refugess welcome”
After activists entered PEGIDA cage and showed a banner saying “refugees welcome” PEGIDA members attack them with signs and grab them.
Approximately 2000 counter protestors blcok the route of PEGIDA Munich. Police does not attempt to evict the block.
PEGIDA is blocked. An angry mob stands in the middle of riot police forces and tries to push out. Left activists block the route.
After a group of neonazis attacked left demonstrators as they tried to get out of the PEGIDA cage, police escorts them into the subway.
