Germany: Calls to ban overtly ‘anti-Semitic’ left-wing May Day protests

Breitbart reports (H/T Elder of Ziyon)

The Alternative for Germany (AfD) wants to see a ban on a left wing protest in Berlin they say is overtly anti-Semitic.
May 1st is one of the biggest days of the year for those on the left side of the political spectrum. Known as International Worker’s Day, the event usually revolves around leftists getting together to march in cities all over Europe and North America.

Berlin is no different, and plans are already under way for a protest to be organized.

The anti-mass migration party AfD has said that the protesters  message has changed in recent years. They say that the tone of the protests has become increasingly anti-Semitic and that those types of attitudes should not be permitted on the streets of the German capital. The party has called for a ban to the protest entirely, reports Junge Freiheit.

Berlin AfD Deputy Chairman Hans-Joachim Berg said that if the openly anti-Semitic slogans and attitudes of radical left organizations are allowed to march in the May 1st demonstration then, “the Senate proves that its commitments to Israel are worthless.”

Even those on the left are engaging in a new debate about the role of anti-Israel and anti-Semitic members of their movements. German politician and former national chairman of the Green party Jutta Ditfurth has become the centre of resistance to anti-semitism on the Berlin left.

The politician who campaigns for ecological issues said, “we have never experienced in a left wing alliance such anti-Semitic incitement and discussion.”
