TIME ONLINE | News, backgrounds and debates


Berlin (AP) - The number of right-wing extremist demonstrators in Germany has again increased significantly. From July to September 2018, 7614 neo-Nazis took part in 23 far-right rallies, such as protest marches, demonstrations and commemorative events, according to the Federal Government. In the same period last year, there were 3040 participants - less than half as in this year. This emerges from a response of the Federal Government to a request from the left-wing fraction, as the newspapers report to the Funke Mediengruppe.
