Dresden, Germany, sending them violent “go home!”. Others who seem to welcome the fire of a future home for asylum seekers. In less than a week, two anti-migrant incidents hit Saxony, causing outrage from the political class, especially among members of the coalition government combining the Conservatives and the Social Democrats.

The Interior Minister, Thomas de Maiziere has said he was totally “unacceptable that people from seeking protection against persecution are being welcomed by hatred.” On Twitter, many of his colleagues in government have also expressed outrage. The Minister of Justice, Heiko Maas, wrote on the social network: “Those who applaud as houses burn, those frightened refugees behave atrocious and disgusting way”.

“racists are a disgrace to our country. Shame on you, “piped Michael Roth, the Secretary of State for European Affairs.

“Something is wrong in Saxony”

Aydan Özoguz, responsible for integration issues to the government, widely described as “something * would * not in Saxony.” In the federal states where the far right is very good scores, thousands of acts against réfufiés were recorded. Dresden, the capital of Saxony, is also the birthplace of Pegida, a movement Islamophobic and anti-refugee, born in 2014.

Thursday night, asylum seekers arrived by bus in the city to join their new home. widely disseminated videos on social networks showed a policeman grab a teenager by the neck and out of the bus as the cries of a hundred demonstrators shouting at their address: “Clear!” or “Go home!”

the attitude of the police, described as violent, had already been the subject of criticism this weekend from opposition parties, the Greens and the radical left left party. At a press conference, the head of the local police had meanwhile defended his men, saying that the refugees had sent “obscene” acts against protesters. According to the ZDF news channel and a local radical left-elected, the director of the home to accommodate refugees would be a member of the populist AFD, “Alternative for Germany”, an anti-immigration party, which uses the crisis refugees to climb in the polls.
