CHEMNITZ PROTESTS: German Mayor Declares ‘State of Emergency’ after Right-Wing Protests

A STATE of Emergency has been declared in Chemnitz following a series of Protests caused by two of Angela Merkel’s Migrants who killed a German-Cuban man in an East German city.

Chemnitz has been the centre of a ‘revolution’ over the past week as anti-migrant protests get bigger and bigger.

More than 1.6 million people have entered Germany over the last four years and tensions have reached boiling point.

More than 1,200 police officers have been drafted in to secure the city, after nine people were injured in clashes on Saturday.

Police arrested Iraqi Yousif Ibrahim A, 22, and Syrian Alaa S, 23, over the stabbing of Mixed Race Daniel Hillig, 35. He was a carpenter and he leaves a wife.

The Iraqi suspect in the murder case had avoided deportation and had a huge criminal record.

He had received a suspended seven-months jail term for assault and been charged with other offences, including drug trafficking, fraud and property damage.

He was a trained barber and he arrived in Germany in 2015, the peak year of the influx that brought over one million Muslim migrants to Germany.

Right-wing Pediga and the AfD – Alternative for Deutschland (Germany) – plan to challenge German Chancellor Angela Merkel’s immigration policies in the East German city, Chemnitz, where Daniel’s murder sparked riots.

AfD leader Alexander Gauland told Die Welt that “migration is destroying the feeling that you can trust your neighbour”.

Sputnik reported that Daniel was stabbed 25 times and died in hospital.

Two of his friends were also seriously injured and admitted to hospital. The authorities earlier called the incident a “dispute between several people of different nationalities.”

The police were initially reluctant to release information about the suspects, including their nationality.

Chemnitz is in Saxony, a region where the patriotic right-wing, anti-immigration Alternative for Germany (AfD) party and the Pegida movement are particularly strong. They despise Mrs Merkel’s open-door immigration policy.

Merkel, who was widely criticized for opening Germany’s borders to 800,000 migrants in 2016 blamed the ‘Far Right’ and not her open-door policy that has caused major divisions in Germany.

Social Media reports that the two migrants were ‘sexually harassing’ a girl, before Daniel interveined — Politicalite cannot verify this claim.

Chemnitz mayor Barbara Ludwig told Sky News on Sunday: “The situation is volatile. There is also a state of emergency in the town.

“I’m convinced that it’ll mobilise forces as we see today that very clearly show that we won’t allow for the right and right-wing thinking to undermine the state.”

According to police in Chemnitz, around 9,500 people took part in a series of demonstrations on Friday.

A large-scale ‘silent march’ took place yesterday in protest against Chancellor Merkel’s policies.

The protesters held large portraits of victims of attacks which they allege were done by asylum seekers.
