Several dozen left-wing activists protested against what is believed to have been an AfD private summer party event, which allegedly took place in the yard of a house on Perlebergerstrasse in Berlin's Moabit district, on Thursday.
Protesters, including local residents as well as Antifa activists, chanted «Nazis are pigs» as members of the Alternative for Germany party members approached the entrance gate. They held anti-AfD posters and banners reading, «Create space free from the right-wing. No space for AfD.»
Berlin resident and participant of the anti-AFD demo, Deniz, said, «AfD are celebrating their summer festival in this back-house, or courtyard of this house, and residents call for people to gather here and to support them. They were not made aware of this festival, it was very spontaneous.»
An increased police presence could be seen on site. Officers cordoned off the entrance gate to the AfD meeting venue and patrolled the area.
