H13 german officials declare nazi emergency dresden afd anti immigrant

German officials in the eastern city of Dresden have declared a “Nazi emergency” as far-right movements continue to gain power. Dresden is the birthplace of Germany’s Islamophobic movement. In recent elections, more than a quarter of Dresden voters supported the anti-immigrant far-right AFD party. Meanwhile, in Norway, officials arrested American white supremacist Greg Johnson hours before he was slated to give a speech at a far-right conference in Oslo Saturday, saying Johnson’s hate speech posed a threat. Johnson has expressed support for Anders Breivik, a Norwegian right-wing terrorist who killed 77 people in 2011 in the deadliest attack in Norway since World War II.
