Germany 2021 November

Key Developments


Also in November 2021, far-right groups mobilized to the Polish-German border to “protect” it from refugees. The AfD tried to utilise the topic as a political issue. Likewise, it tried to use the debate about compulsory vaccination for its own benefit. The AfD-MP Roger Beckamp traveled on the 27th of November 2021 to the Polish-Belarussian border with his own Camera team to report for the far-right „Tagestimme“ which is based in Austria. He also distributed flyers („No way“) to the local people.

The right-wing open demonstrations of pandemic deniers and vaccination opponents gained momentum again since mid-November. In the state of Saxony in particular, the situation virtually exploded. Here, the far-right “Free Saxons” often led the protests. At times, the protest culminated in the small Saxon town of Zwönitz. During some protests, there were clashes with the police.

On the 27th of November 2021, there was a gathering of far-right politicians in Warsaw. Organiser was then polish politician Grzegorz Braun (Konfederacja).
