Hundreds gathered in the Altmarkt of Aue-Bad Schlema on Saturday for an anti-immigration rally following a knife fight near a church on Christmas Eve.
According to local media, the incident was sparked by a 53-year-old Syrian man who was asked to leave a Christmas party at a clergy house, near the St. Nicolas church. The situation escalated when several men, reportedly of Arab origin, appeared at the party which ended with a church worker being stabbed and injured.
The rally, under the banner ‘Save the homeland – prevent foreign infiltration and its effects’ was called by the National Democratic Party (NPD) City Councillor Stefan Hartung.
