Many of you will remember a particularly amusing video & meme circulating earlier this year, showing two intrepid young men suddenly breaking ranks with a Pegida march in Nürnberg, Germany and making off with Pegida’s fancy banner as they dashed off.
As it turns out, our friends were quick but not quite fast enough to elude capture by the authorities. And now they face a series of absurd charges such as “destruction of public property” and “grievous bodily harm!”
And so, a support group has been set up to provide aid and assistance to our two friends to defend themselves against the authorities, who clearly have no appreciation for Germany’s rich history of street theatre. The International Anti-Fascist Defence Fund has decided to contribute to our friends’ defence and we would encourage you to do so as well. Bank information and other details available here.
