Germany: Baergida activists rally outside memorial service for Berlin attack victims

Germany, Berlin
January 16, 2017 at 16:48 GMT +00:00 · Published

Dozens of Baergida alliance activists marched in Berlin on Monday evening, on the four weeks after the truck attack which blighted the German capital.

The group of right-wing demonstrators marched from Zoologischer Garten station towards Kaiser Wilhelm Memorial Church (Kaiser-Wilhelm-Gedaechtniskirche), which hosted an ecumenical peace prayer for the victims of the attack.

A similarly sized group of counter demonstrators from various left-wing movements disrupted the Baergida gathering at Breitscheidplatz. Despite their presence the march took place outside the memorial service. Numerous police units cordoned off the opposing parties in order to prevent potential tensions.

On Monday, Berlin marked four-weeks since the attack, which was committed by 24-year-old Tunisian Anis Amri, who drove a truck into the Christmas market outside the iconic Kaiser Wilhelm Memorial Church, killing 12 people and injuring more than fifty others.
