PEGIDA Munich gathers once again on Odeonsplatz. Approximately 70 participated in the far-right rally. With the date of PEGIDA Munich’s second birthday approaching the movement has once more shown its far-right neonazi believes. Karl-Heinz Statzberger, ‘Der III. Weg’ and Karl Richter, ‘BIA’ held speeches. Flyers of the neonazi party ‘III. Weg’ were thrown.
On the gloomy night of December fifth once again PEGIDA participants gather to rally. The same people as every week join. Amongst participants as usually violent neonazis like Dan Eising, Petra K., Tirza M., Karl-Heinz Statzberger, Karl Richter and many more. The only premiere on this Monday night: Karl-Heinz Statzberger, convicted neonazi terrorist and local leader of the neonazi party ‘Der III. Weg’, steps up front and is handed a microphone. Content of the speech: The neonazi party ‘Der III. Weg’, their ‘mission’ of aiding refugees in Syria to keep them from fleeing to Europe and in the end he salutes with the parties greetings:
Fürs Vaterland? Bereit! Fürs Volk? Bereit! Für die Heimat? Bereit!
PEGIDA answers his speech with applause and salutes back. Heinz Meyer, under investigation by the Federal German Bar, thanks the neonazi functionary and declares that all patriotic forces have to join the fight. He also announces that he will be participating in ‘Der III. weg’ rallies in the future.
After returning from the march through inner-city Munich, that was attempted to be blocked by antifascists, another neonazi functionary held a speech. Karl Richter, a by know well approved speaker at the local PEGIDA rallies, talks about the awful government of the city of Munich and also declares that the system will be overthrown, as it can be seen in the United States and the barely lost election of Hofer in Austria.
Heinz Meyer then finishes off with the ambiguous sentence that ‘Adolf’ should have held a speech after Statzberger and Richter, but that he will do that in a video next week. This clearly shows the direction PEGIDA Munich is heading for in the upcoming year. Even the last bystander must have realized by now: PEGIDA Munich is a weekly neonazi march through inner-city Munich.
