Left-wing extremism in Germany: attack on vehicles used for deportations

BRAUNSCHWEIG. After an arson attack on the state registration authority in Braunschweig, Lower Saxony, the investigators assume a left-wing extremist background. "There are some indications that point in the direction of terrorism," said State Police President Axel Brockmann on Sunday evening on NDR. The authorities are sure that the perpetrators can be assigned to the left-wing extremist scene . There are probably several people, as the planned procedure shows.

On Saturday night, ten vehicles and trailers went up in flames on the premises of the State Registration Authority (LAB). The newly purchased cars burned out completely. There was damage of around half a million euros. According to the State Ministry of the Interior, the investigators also found incendiary devices on the building of the authority, but they did not ignite. The LAB is responsible, among other things, for the accommodation of asylum seekers in Lower Saxony and supports the immigration authorities with deportations.

An anonymous left-wing extremist group claimed responsibility for the attack on Saturday morning. "We have attacked the murderous deportation system", it said in the letter on the scene portal "Indymedia". The incendiary devices were specifically placed on vans that were used for deportations. “Our militant actions are a practical contribution to effectively hindering the processes in the inhuman deportation system. We show solidarity with refugees who come to Europe and to us in Germany. "

Police President Brockmann warned of a qualitative and quantitative increase in left-wing extremist crimes. Lower Saxony's Interior Minister Boris Pistorius (SPD) also announced: "We are seeing a strong radicalization of the scene in Lower Saxony, which is developing into a terrorist structure." He was shocked by the extent of the attacks. In the middle of last year, the Federal Office for the Protection of the Constitution had already noticed a clear radicalization of the left-wing extremist scene .

There was also left-wing extremist violence in Berlin over the weekend. Around 1,000 people from several left-wing radical groups gathered on Sunday for a memorial demonstration for Rosa Luxemburg and Karl Liebknecht in the Friedrichshain district. When the police wanted to remove the flags of the GDR youth organization FDJ, demonstrators attacked the officers. Seventeen police officers were injured, two of whom had to stop working. An officer was taken to a hospital.
