DiEM25 strongly condemns the normalisation of right-wing extremism in Germany

by DiEM25 Communications

While Germany was debating the meaning of “Leitkultur” (“leading culture”, as opposed to multiculturalism), another right-wing terrorist attack occurred, this time in the German town of Hanau where an armed individual killed eleven people at two shisha bars.
This latest attack comes in the aftermath of last week’s attempted assault against Muslims, which fortunately was prevented, as well as prior deadly attacks in Kassel and Halle.
Moreover, last year’s discovery of an extremist right-wing network operating within the German army, “Hannibal“, illustrates the extent to which right-wing extremism has become normalised in the country.
Furthermore, the attack happened just two weeks after a liberal politician was elected in Thuringia with the help of the right-wing party AfD (Alternative für Deutschland). This clearly shows just how incapable and unwilling the German Establishment is to fight right-wing extremism.
Not only is the right-wing extremist party AfD part of political institutions in Germany and a welcomed guest in TV-debates, “white terrorism” is now becoming the new normal.
The town of Hanau is famous for being the birthplace of the Brothers Grimm. Now it is becoming a symbol of what is wrong with Germany.
We express our deepest solidarity with the victims, and call on all progressive forces in Germany to protest against the normalisation of right-wing extremism, and to get organised so that events like these are not repeated in the future.
Our condolences are with the victims and their families. We stand by you.
