Germany: Hundreds protest against multiculturalism and refugees in Erfurt
Hundreds of anti-refugee demonstrators gathered at the central station of Erfurt, Saturday, to protest against multiculturalism and decry the arrival of refugees to Europe. The protest march was met by a group of pro-refugee counter-protesters.
The protesters took to the streets at around noon local time (10:00 GMT) and marched through the city of Erfurt for over three hours with banners against Muslims and refugees.
SOT, Anti-refugee activist (German): "I live in Switzerland. All the entrance points connected to Italy are closed. Instead here [in Germany] there is no solidarity with their own people or German leadership. This kind of politician must go. And therefore we here in Erfurt, as in Berlin, say Merkel must go."
