Tensions flared and minor scuffles broke out at a demonstration against the Alternative for Germany Party (AfD) in Wiesbaden on Sunday, after two AfD politicians exchanged harsh words with demonstrators. Robert Lambrou, leader of the AfD in Hessen, and Klaus Herrman, Faction Chairman for Wetteraukreis, jostled with the crowds before being jeered out of the demonstration to chants of «Nazis out... Еще». Around 1500 people marched through the streets of Wiesbaden to demonstrate against the party's decision to run in Hessen's state election. Michael Rudolph, Chairman of the Hessen-Thruingen branch of German Trade Union Confederation, spoke at the demonstration, where he called for «no AfD in the state election». The Hessen state election is due to take place on 28 October.
