Wir sind mehr

After a deadly incident in Chemnitz where a young man was stabbed to death by a person seeking asylum in Germany, the far-right instrumentalized this tragic death and organised a rally through the eastern german city to spread hatred and racist political views. Neonazis and hooligans clashed with the police, while chasing counter-protestors and attacking journalists.

Days after the riots, several bands including well-known rock, punk and hip-hop acts called for a concert in the city centre. Under the slogan “Wir sind mehr”, “We are more”, tens of thousands attended the event to demonstrate against hatred and for a multicultural society – Chemnitz, September 2018
