Police Detain Anti-Immigrant Counter Protesters in Germany

RT reports today that Berlin police used force to disperse a “sit in” protesting a demonstration by the right-wing, anti-immigration Identitarian movement, demanding protection for European “identity, culture and lifestyle.” Police said that under 1,000 activists gathered in a quiet part of the German capital on Saturday afternoon for a sanctioned march by the self-proclaimed “anti-jihadist” movement. They were outnumbered by an estimated 1,400 counter-protesters, who have labeled the Identitarian movement “Nazi hipsters”, and assembled to disrupt the march.

Police officers in armored suits removed the counter-protesters, using force to drag them away.
