CHEMNITZ, Germany (Reuters) - Far-right demonstrators clashed with leftist protesters in the eastern German city of Chemnitz on Monday after an Iraqi and a Syrian were arrested over a fatal stabbing that had triggered violent demonstrations.
Over a thousand leftist protesters massed near a giant statue of Karl Marx in Chemnitz on Monday evening to protest attacks on foreigners that occurred during an impromptu demonstration on Sunday after reports spread on social media about the stabbing of a 35-year-old German man.
Nearly the same number of demonstrators waving German and Bavarian flags gathered nearby, some breaking through police barriers aimed at keeping the two sides apart. Many chanted We are the people,

“Over a thousand leftist protesters massed near a giant statue of Karl Marx”
Just curious, what would they have to do to qualify as “far left” in the author’s eyes?
Nobody farther left than Marx.
Chemnitz was known as “Karl Marx Stadt” in the former East Germany.
So let me see whether I understand correctly - a German citizen is murdered by an immigrant from the Middle East. When people protest that death, they are labelled as ‘far-right’.
Nothing to see here, just the usual biased reporting from the left.
Eventually, there will be war....
“Far-right demonstrators clashed with leftist protesters in the eastern German city of Chemnitz..”
Wrong...should read German patriots clashed with filthy leftist antifa scum. “Far right” has become the term used by the degenerate press to define anyone with the pecans to stand up to these filth...in whatever country.
Who ever imagined that in our lifetimes we’d see Germans screaming “Deutschland erwache!” and we’d actually think it was a good thing?
“Chemnitz was known as Karl Marx Stadt in the former East Germany.”
Angel Merkin’s kind of town.
“Who ever imagined that in our lifetimes wed see Germans screaming Deutschland erwache! and wed actually think it was a good thing?”
German earwax? :-P
The Far Right is everyone who opposes the Leftist agenda.
