Activists with caps fled against the Bundeswehr on Wednesday. The soldiers were cursed as murderers.
This is our hatred of the Bundeswehr! Activists chanted “Soldiers are murderers” and “You have blood on your hands,” and soldiers stationed in Afghanistan were rewarded before the Reichstag on Wednesday.
Under the motto “Germany is a gunner,” an alliance on the left called for an “anti-militarist demonstration.” On the eve of the event, the mood on the Internet was good and mass protests against the beating were announced.
However, instead of 300 participants registered with the police, a total of 130 protesters came together. The train started at 18:00 at Hallesches Tor (Kreuzberg) metro station, passed through Friedrichstrasse and Leipziger Strasse near Ebertstrasse – Zapfenstreich.
Activists were even allowed to go to the Reichstag. However, the scene was largely cordoned off.
Afghan soldiers were embarrassed by the loudspeaker accusations. A spokesman for the EU Initiative Against Border Regime said, “It was never the army’s goal to make Afghanistan more secure.”

On the train, soldiers were repeatedly insulted as murderers. And the slogans “Many remain” were always heard. The left-wing scene has been mobilizing for weeks against the unloading of Kopenicker Strasse (center) carriages.
Police will close the surrounding streets on Thursday and prepare for possible riots. The occupied “Kopi” house and the adjacent wagon tower, together with Rigaer94 (Friedrichshain), are the last demonstration of the violent left scene in the capital.
Thank you very much for your effort
The final call for those returning from Afghanistan at the Berlin Bendlerblock! The end of the Taliban’s 20-year mission to seize power was bitter, but Federal President Frank-Walter Steinmeier praised the troops’ efforts: “The Bundeswehr did everything politics said.”
Steinmeier said he would pay the highest price for the 59 German soldiers who lost their lives in Afghanistan: “We are deeply indebted.” A big tattoo in honor of the soldiers in the evening – together with the leaders of German politics.
