German Identitarians occupy balcony of Green Party office

The right-wing identity movement climbed onto a balcony of the Bundesgeschaeftstelle der Grünen, the Green Party's federal offices, in the middle of Berlin to unfurl a massive banner denouncing the party's attitude towards women and multiculturalism, the German daily, the Berliner Morgenpost reported.

    This was not their first hit. In August, the Identitarians occupied the Brandenburg Gate, in September they interrupted a radio broadcast by the RBB with Margot Käßmann and the leftist Jakob Augstein.

    On Saturday, a handful of members of the “anti-constitutional” movement could be seen on a balcony of the Federal Office of the Greens on the square in front of the Neuer Tor in the Mitte of Berlin, unfurling a “gift” to the party: a banner.

    As yellow smoke wafted from the building, the small group denounced the glaring inconsistencies of the Greens who preach feminism and women’s rights but welcome large and extremely misogynist migrant groups unconditionally.

    The Identitarians had gained access to the balcony from the street by means of a ladder at 2.30 pm. Sympathisers shielded the climbers. As with previous actions of the right, everything seemed to be organized in detail.

    A police officer confirmed to the Morgenpost in the evening that the balcony occupation lasted only a few minutes. The Identitarians dissappeared as quickly from the scene as they had arrived, leaving behind only the ladder and photos documenting their action on Twitter.

    The identity movement started in France, but has crossed the border into Germany. It has been monitored since July 2016 by the Federal Office for the Protection of the Constitution. “We see in the ‘Identity Movement’ evidence of challenging certain tenets of the free democratic order,” said Hans-Georg Maaßen. But it was not immediatly clear why the Identitarians might be “anti-constitutional”.

    The Identitarians are mainly against immigration and the threat of the Islamization in Germany. Through guerilla actions based on leftist examples, which are distributed via social media, young people in particular are targeted.

    In France Identitarians regularly arrest immigrant criminals and hand them over to the police.

    In this case the immigrant had harrassed a female student in Lyon, but the Identitarians intervened and called law enforcement.
