Left-wing riots result in 16 injured German policemen

Left-wing extremists injured several police officers in Berlin over the weekend and damaged buildings and cars.

    Already during the demonstrations organised around left-wing squatter accommodation in Berlin-Friedrichshain on Saturday afternoon, approximately one thousand participants there arrived to attack officials, according to the police. Some 1500 officers were deployed.

    After the rallies with slogans like “One struggle, one fight” and “Projects united – we stay”, the left-wing extremists struck in several places. Shortly after 8pm, ten to 15 hooded individuals attacked in the district Mitte. They threw paving stones against the windows and paint bags against the facade. Then they set fire to three car tires and fled.

    At around 10 pm, around two dozen left-wing extremists attacked police officers in Riga street with stones. In addition, the group emptied two dumpsters on the street and set them on fire. Even from the roof of a house, the officials were pelted with stones. The rioters sprayed the police with paint and demolished dozens of cars.

    Berlin Interior Senator Andreas Geisel (SPD) criticized the rioters: “I strongly condemn the violence that hit the police on Saturday, especially in Riga street. Those who attack people who secure the fundamental right to freedom of assembly, has abandoned serious political debate.”

    Previously, the CDU interior politician Burkard Dregger had attacked the Berlin state government. “I personally blame the Interior Senator and the Red-Green coalition for the blind hatred and inhuman left-wing violence against police officers last night in Riga Street,” Dregger said on Sunday.

    The Berlin AfD domestic policy expert Karsten Woldeit criticized both parties. He not only singled out the policemen, “who have to conduct this cuddling policy against the left-wing perpetrators and pay for it with their health”, but also those politicians who give up on the rule of law because they do not even make an effort to end the unsustainable conditions around Riga Street and never stop the extremists. “Under Red-Green, left-wing extremists have created a de facto lawless space,” Woldeit said.

    Around the partially occupied house on Riga Street 94, officials, cars and political opponents have repeatedly been attacked. So far, all attempts of the owner have failed to return the legally owned property to his sole ownership.

    The violence by hooded left-wing extremists, called “autonomists” or illegal squatters, included a witchhunt against two employees of a private security company. The two had to be rescued at the last moment where they were hiding in a trailer. The “autonomists” tried – under the eyes of the police – to break open the trailer to get hold of the two people.

    They attacked the construction vehicle. “I ran for my life,” said one of the two men after his release from the trailer by the police.

    Because this was left-wing and not right-wing violence, the riots were not reported in the mainstream media. The public service television briefly reported about it on the regional program of the RBB.
