Post: Leipzig: riots before Solidarity Day


Burning barricades, injured police officers, arrests: riots broke out in Leipzig on Friday. The “Day X” demo remains banned, but riots are expected.

In Leipzig, hooded police officers attacked the evening before the left-wing autonomous solidarity day for convicted student Lina E. The rally at Wiedebachplatz in the Connewitz district started out peacefully at first. As a reporter from the German Press Agency observed, a crowd of several hundred hooded people then suddenly flew stones and pyrotechnics at the authorities.

Barricades and construction site barriers consisting of garbage cans burned both there and in the side streets. Police used tear gas and said they were “thrown objects” from the roofs of houses.
