I CARE - - Germany: 10 pro-migrant protestors arrested at anti-AfD rally


I CARE - - News - Internet Centre Anti Racism Europe: 7/11/2015- Police in Berlin have clashed with pro-migrant demonstrators who were holding a counter protest to anti-migrant marchers of the populist-nationalist Alternative for Germany (AfD) group on Saturday. At least 10 supporters of the migrants were arrested, with police saying that an officer was lightly wounded in the brawl, according to AFP. Around 3,500 anti-migrant protestors took to the streets of Berlin shouting slogans such as "Asylum Has Its Limits — Red Card for Merkel". Organisers from AfD had hoped that 5,000 people would turn out to protest at the recent influx of migrants, but far fewer made it to the demonstration. AfD is the main critic of the top European economy's open-door policy under Chancellor Angela Merkel towards refugees fleeing war and persecution. Pro-migrant groups, which included representatives of Merkel's Christian Democratic Union of German (CDU), the Social Democratic Party of Germany, The Greens and other left-wing parties, held five counter-protests across Berlin which organisers said had a turnout of 7,000 people.
