Stuttgart riot: ‘Antifa was there’

Police officers who were on duty during the Stuttgart riots have voiced suspicion that left-wing extremists were also involved in the riots. “It reminded me of the G20 summit in Hamburg. My colleagues and I are pretty sure that Antifa was there.

    Otherwise it would not have escalated so much,” an official told regional daily the Badischen Neuesten Nachrichten.

    The police noticed shopping trolleys full of stones and other projectiles. “And there were bottles that were filled with paint. No normal party goer has something like this with them,” the paper quoted a police officer. In addition, hooded people with crowbars were noticed during the operation.

    The deputy state chairman of the German Police Union, Jürgen Engel, shared this assessment. “According to what my colleagues have reported to me and what you can see on the videos, it can be assumed that the riots started within the so-called event scene, but were then supported and fueled by left-wing autonomists.”

    The Stuttgart police leadership initially suspected the authors of being part of the Stuttgart “party and event scene” in order to hide the fact that mostly migrants were part of the urban violence.

    They received criticism for this ridiculous assessment, and have now said that it could not be ruled out that “individuals from the left spectrum” also participated in the riots. However, those responsible did not want to confirm the officials’ observations.

    The German domestic intelligence agency, known as the Office for the Protection of the Constitution, had already warned of a growing willingness among leftists to use violence. However, there is no information yet about the “participation of violent left-wing extremists in the riots”, emphasized a government spokesman.

    During riots last weekend, rioters in downtown Stuttgart attacked police officers and ransacked shops. 19 officers were injured.
