"Ami go home" - right-wing rally and strong counter-protest

According to the police, several hundred people gathered in front of the Federal Administrative Court in Leipzig on Saturday under the motto “Ami go home” – with strong counter-protest in the city. They called on the US to withdraw its troops and nuclear weapons to German soil. One of the speakers was the publisher of the right-wing “Compact Magazine”, Jürgen Elsässer. According to the police, the participants included right-wing groups.

During counter-demonstrations there were also sit-ins and riots, the police said. Pyrotechnics were set off during a counter-demo. For this reason, this elevator was stopped. A large banner of the counter-demonstrators read "The right hand to the ground." The counter-protest was "significantly larger" overall than the "Ami go home" demonstration, the police said.

The number of participants in the counter-protests is in the low four-digit range. The police estimated the number of demonstrators in front of the Federal Administrative Court at around 900. 15,000 participants had been registered. In the late afternoon, the participants moved together along the inner city ring road to the west of the city.

The police are in full force in the city. "We are prepared for everything - also for the course of the evening," said a spokeswoman.
