Demo ticker on February 11th: Loud protest against the “funeral march” of the right-wing extremists

4:55 p.m. | There are still disruptions on three DVB city lines

The Dresden public transport company is currently rerouting tram lines 3 and 8 as well as bus line 66. The other lines are back on schedule, although some are still delayed.

4:30 p.m. | The police’s operational tactics are apparently working

The police tactics apparently worked. According to a police spokesman, the right-wing extremist camp and the counter-demonstrator camp were always kept at a distance – but demonstrations within hearing and sight were possible. Despite 15 criminal proceedings initiated so far, the police spokesman describes the day as peaceful in an initial interim assessment. Around 1,000 neo-Nazis are said to have traveled to the so-called funeral march. According to police, around 5,000 people took part in the counter-demonstrations.

4:21 p.m. | Newspaper: Mayor Hilbert with the counter-demonstrators

The “Sächsische Zeitung” also identified Dresden’s mayor Dirk Hilbert (FDP) among the counter-demonstrators. He is quoted as saying that it is “important to have a presence here.” The town hall boss was pleased that so many people confronted the neo-Nazis on the street despite the constant rain.

3:49 p.m. | So-called funeral march back at the main train station

After a shortened route, the so-called funeral march of the right-wing extremists has returned to its starting point near the main train station. The police siege against around 150 demonstrators from the left spectrum in the immediate vicinity of the University of Technology and Economics had previously been broken up by the police.

The route of the “funeral march” was shortened because the police wanted to prevent a confrontation with counter-demonstrators at Lennéplatz. Now the right-wing extremists are holding a rally – again accompanied by loud protests.

3:26 p.m. | Loud protests against neo-Nazis

On their further journey, the right-wing extremists are accompanied by left-wing counter-protest on the edge of Parkstrasse – with drums, loud whistles and shouts: “All together against fascism.”

3:12 p.m. | Protest within hearing and sight at Georgplatz

At Georgplatz, not far from the town hall, the neo-Nazis’ “funeral march” (in the front) passed within hearing and sight of the counter-protest from the left-wing spectrum. A large police presence keeps both camps at a distance.

2:52 p.m. | Why students take to the streets against right-wing extremists

The two students Jule and Annika want to show that there is no place for right-wing extremism in Dresden. “Even if the right-wingers are present here, the right-wingers are not in the majority,” says Jule. The 22-year-old has often been on the streets in Dresden against right-wing extremism and for tolerance, diversity and democracy.

“You feel hopeless when you watch the news,” says Annika. The demos against the right gave her great hope. “You have to stand up for what you believe in: diversity, openness and democracy.”
