Hundreds of antifa activists marched against a convention of the far-right Alternative for Germany (AfD) in Riesa on Saturday. At least two neo-Nazi activists were arrested for heckling the march and prompting minor scuffles.
The protesters exhibited numerous placards and banners against the AfD and neo-Nazis, such as, «You are not an alternative» and «Voting AfD is so 1933.»
«I think that the... Еще AfD is representing a big part of an insecure population [in Sachsen]. I would not say they are representing the majority, but a huge amount of people who are insecure, who want to be heard about their insecurity and fears,» said Isabellae Tesche, Deputy Chairman of the V-Partei3 in Sachsen
«And therefore they [AfD] know how to make themselves heard loudly,» she added.
