Germany: Hundreds March Against Racism in Hamburg After Hanau Terror Attack

Hundreds of activists across various movements and parties marched in Hamburg on Saturday, to protest against right-wing extremism and racism in the wake of the deadly Hanau terror attack.

“The important thing is to stick together, it is important that the deceased are not forgotten and it is important that politicians finally learn to deal with victims sensibly. This is important,” said one activist at the demonstration.

According to police, around 500 participants first gathered on Hachmannplatz in front of Hamburg main train station to pay tribute to the victims of the shooting that took place earlier this week. The rally was kicked off with one a minutes silence for the victims.

Later, participants of the demonstration marched through the central streets of Hamburg carrying banners and placards denouncing right-wing party Alternative for Germany (AfD) and radical extremism, that is believed to be behind the attack that killed 10 people.

Thousands of people took to the streets on Saturday in several German cities, including 3,000 in Hanau, protesting against right-wing groups and racism.

On Wednesday, February 19, a 43-year-old German citizen from Hanau reportedly opened fire outside a shisha bar at Heumarkt district, driving off to a second location in Kesselstadt district, where he opened fire again.

The double shooting left at least 10 people dead, with five injured, before the suspect and his 72-year-old mother were found dead at his address in the early hours of Thursday morning.
