Ok, definitively no fun, and secretly quite scary.. At the end of the protest against the Bärgida (the berlin Pegida spin-off) tonight we were left with so little people, the more violently minded of the other side felt secure enough in their numbers to actually break through the police lines and try to attack us (maybe we shouldn’t have sung they had a football-stadium ban…).
No fun at all when you see 20 of these broad-shouldered idiots storming towards you… and knowing on “our” side are elderly people, self-declared pacifists and in general, not that many people prepared for something like that.
If anyone still thinks the Pegida / Bärgida/ whatever-gida people are peaceful protesters, think again. As if the attacks on journalists a few weeks ago in Leipzig hadn’t made that clear.
And frikkin hell… this made clear to me again, how important it is to make a stand, be there and be loud… I’ll be there next monday, I’m afraid it’s necessary… I hope there will be more….
