German Unity Day October 3: March of Neo-Nazi Party “The Third Way” – Members of the neo-facist „Asow“ Movement from Ukraine participate as special guests

The Neo-Nazi Party “The Third Way” (Der Dritte Weg) was founded by former NPD cadres. On Saturday, October 3rd, a demonstration of around 150 participants took place in the Berlin district of Hohenschönhausen.

The motto of the demonstration was:
“A people wants a future! – Preserve home, stop foreign infiltration, smash capitalism!“

Guest speakers included the Neo-Nazi Fredrik Vejdeland, a leading member of the Swedish arm of the Scandinavian “Nordic Resistance Movement” and head of “Nordisk Radio”.

The officially welcomed guests of honor also included representatives of the neo-fascist Azov movement from Ukraine.

The neo-Nazi and lawyer Wolfram Nahrath gave a speech, he was formerly head of the now banned Wiking-Jugend and chairman of the national arbitration court of the NPD. Nahrath regularly defends representatives of the right-wing extremist spectrum in court. He also appeared in the NSU trial, as the public defender of the neo-Nazi and NPD functionary Ralf Wohlleben. (The NSU trial or National Socialist Underground trial was a trial against several people in connection with the National Socialist Underground (NSU) – an extreme-right terrorist organization in Germany – and the NSU murders.)

Counterprotests also took place. Left groups called in advance for decentralized actions and blockades. Numerous other initiatives and alliances besides autonomous anti-group groups mobilized several thousand people to Hohenschönhausen on Saturday. In addition to various rallies that served as points of contact, the anti-fascists repeatedly managed to get directly to the route of the Neo-Nazis. Smaller blockades were set up.
