Germany: Scuffles erupt at protests against 'environmental pig' satire song

Scuffles erupted as protesters, outnumbered by counter-protesters, rallied over the 'My grandma is an old environmental pig' song remake by the public-broadcasting institution Westdeutscher Rundfunk (WDR), in Cologne on Saturday. Right-wing groups gathered in front of the WDR headquarters to decry the satirical video, but were reportedly outnumbered by some 1,500 counter-protesters who mobilised... Еще to defend free speech. Footage shows arrests and clashes breaking out between protesters and the police. The song broadcasted by WDR was adapted from a popular German children's song that depicts the environmentally questionable habits of a grandmother, and includes the line «My grandma is an old environmental pig.» The German public broadcaster deleted the video from its website and issued an apology following criticisms.
