Siegen gegen den AfD-Parteitag – Siegen Gegen Rechts | Siegen against the AfD-Party Congress – Siegen Against the Right (party)
Hier findet ihr die Infos aus der Facebook-Veranstaltung dazu:
On Saturday, 15 May, the action alliance Siegen Against the Right is organising a protest against the AfD party conference at the P&R Siegerlandhalle car park from 9 am.
Here you can find the information from the Facebook event:
We are protesting against the state party conference of the AfD in the Siegerlandhalle. In addition to a stage with many exciting speeches, there will be various stands with information material until 12 noon. From 1 p.m. to 6 p.m. there will be an outdoor anti-fascist exhibition by the Association of the Persecuted of the Nazi Regime (VVN) on Siegen’s Bahnhofstraße.
Despite dangerously high incidence levels, the AfD wants to hold party meetings from 14 to 16 May and from 21 to 23 May in the Siegerlandhalle, in the immediate vicinity of a test centre and the party office of the open Nazis of the III. Weg, who were able to grow in their slipstream. It is the only party that wants to gather hundreds for a presence meeting in an indoor space. This irresponsibility corresponds to its political stance: the AfD systematically defames and undermines protective measures to contain the pandemic.
It combines in itself the whole range of corona denial and trivialisation. The AfD is not only the parliamentary arm of right-wing terror, but also of the radicalising so-called lateral thinking movement. Since its foundation in 2013, the fascist wing of the AfD has grown and grown, so that it now dominates the party. It is linked to extreme right-wing networks, anti-Semitic conspiracy movements and Nazi hooligans.
The AfD targets democratic, left-wing and trade union forces as well as social institutions. It is waging a battle against the freedom of science, culture and the media while pretending to do the opposite with lies. It scapegoats Muslims and people with an immigrant background for social ills. It divides society and fights sexual self-determination and equal rights for women. The AfD advocates a homogenous national community from which all those who do not fit into its misanthropic world view are excluded. The consequences are marginalisation, hostility, violence and terror, even murder.
Our alternative is solidarity! Together with democratic, trade union, anti-fascist, social and inter-cultural initiatives, organisations, religious communities and parties, we will express our opposition to the AfD’s agitation. Together we will create the possibility of a symbolic protest on the ground. Due to the pandemic, however, we do not want to endanger anyone and implement a well thought-out hygiene concept.
