Thousands rally against Hanau against ‘barbaric ideology’ from white supremacy

More than 6,000 people attended a rally against racism at Hanau, Germany, on Sunday in reaction to this mass shooting that happened before this week.

A few demonstrators singled out the nation’s far-right Alternative for Germany (AfD) celebration for dispersing xenophobic rhetoric.

“From the title of the households, we condemn this dreadful act. All of us became victims of a sick, lawless person who has a barbaric ideology,” among those family members stated as he addressed audiences on stage following the march.

On Wednesday evening a 43-year-old German shot nine individuals in two shisha pubs in Hanau.

The AfD has resisted the assault but speech used by several politicians in the party before has reaffirmed the bias that cultural or religious minorities don’t belong in Germany.

And support for your AfD has dropped by 2 percentage points because of the assault on Wednesday, from 11 percent to 9 percent, according to a survey published on Saturday by the Forsa Institute.

Violence in the far-right has been on the upswing throughout the previous year and this is the next significant episode in fourteen months.
