Germany: 50,000 Attend Anti-Racism Concert in Chemnitz

HeadlineSep 04, 2018

In Germany, more than 50,000 people gathered Monday for an anti-racism concert in Chemnitz, where one week earlier a deadly stabbing of a German man led to violent xenophobic, neo-Nazi protests. An Iraqi and a Syrian were arrested in connection with the killing. This is resident Andrea Ulrich, speaking at the anti-racism concert.

Andrea Ulrich: “This is absolutely fantastic, because as the people of Chemnitz we have to show that our city is colorful, open to everyone, and that we have no sympathy for what has happened here in recent days.”
