    This demo is a scandal! Left, right, lateral thinkers and neo-Nazis marched side by side through the city of Brandenburg/Havel over the weekend. Left country chief Sebastian Walter is in need of explanation. Because the goals of left and right are the same.

    No arms deliveries to Ukraine, no sanctions against Russia, no better equipment for the Bundeswehr.

    With these demands, the “Alliance for Peace” called for a demo on Saturday. Responsible organizer: Bernd Lachmann, Left Vice President of Potsdam-Mittelmark. 1500 participants came.

    But in addition to leftists and inflation-plagued citizens, AfD politicians like Lars Hünich, right-wing extremists with black, white and red Reich flags and well-known neo-Nazis also ran. In the photos you can see Gavin S., two years ago, during the storming of the Reichstag in Berlin.

    The Left Party leadership is appalled. Two weeks ago, their comrades in Leipzig demonstrated strictly separately from the right. “What happened on Saturday must not happen again,” said country manager Sebastian Walter Tuesday, “we spoke to the organizers, they clearly distanced themselves.”

    But Walter and the Left Party are also against arms aid for Ukraine and reject an embargo on Putin’s blood oil. Just like the Moscow friends from the right. Green leader Petra Budke: “The left must decide which side it is on in the Ukraine war!”
