Civil Unrest Explodes In Berlin - Over 3500 People Riot Against Police

Tyler Durden's picture

"Civil Unrest is exploding," warns Armstrong Economics' Martin Armstrong,

The biggest and most violent protest in Germany erupted in Berlin over the weekend exactly with our models calling for an explosion in civil unrest.

Some 1800 police were called in and at least 120 policemen were injured in what is becoming a street battle. This has been the most aggressive and violent protest in Germany for the past five years.

Protesters were throwing bottles, cobblestones and fireworks, as well as they destroyed cars in addition to attacking police officers. It appears at least 3,500 rioters took part in the uprising and possibly more than 4,000.

The protest is against police operations and involved mostly young people who have risen up against the police operations in the Riga street area. Protesters wore black hoods carrying banners with slogans like “Riga defend 94” and “Housing solidarity against state terror.”

The demonstration went on with the crowd chanting repeatedly: “Bullenschweine get out of Riga!” Demonstrators were throwing firecrackers and police fired back with tear gas. The police also called in air support using helicopters and they had to call in for reinforcements from Bavaria, Brandenburg, Lower Saxony, Saxony, Saxony-Anhalt, Thuringia and the Federal Police.

Interior Senator Frank Henkel (CDU) announced that the police will also be present at night after the demonstration, so riots and arson attacks should be stopped...calling the riot a "leftist orgy of violence."

With September's elections looming we suspect the tensions will only get worse.

I find the purpose of this demostration to be ambiguous at best.

TBF, these were a bunch of fucking worthless Communists and ANTIFA subhuman scum.  

Police should be knocking teeth out of these people and deporting them to North Korea, not coddling them and always "showing restraint." 

I would literally love for the Police to bring in the German far-right and let them battle to the death.  

The German far-right movement is mostly bikers.  These fucking worthless sacks of shit are alternative artists & feminists.  Place your bets accordingly.

The global war against police has begun. Millennials don't like rules, they're sick of being abused and told what to do by rich capitalist pigs, and most of all they're sick and tired of institutional racism and discrimination. Hopefully, out of this chaos will come a new order based on tolerance and equality, but until then the riots will continue.

WB -

You more than most should know that the NSA is monitoring upvotes and downvotes on media sites.  

Responding to troll comentators brings more baggage than you think.

Product placement. Gotta pay the bills somehow.

perhaps you all know, but the original post was, to me, unclear as to motive of the protest.  i had to stoop to reading the nyt: What began late Saturday as a peaceful demonstration in the German capital led by groups associated with anti-fascist and far-left movements ended in violence outside a disputed building. Members of the leftist groups and their sympathizers have been protesting the gentrification spreading into Berlin neighborhoods that have been home to squatters for decades.

It makes sense if you consider that the protestors might be migrants.

"Captain Röhm boasted that he could turn the reddest Communist into a glowing nationalist in four weeks." Eric Hoffer -The True Believer

His point being about the interchangability of mass movements.  He wrote a whole chapter about it.  So, if the ground is THIS fertile, you can bet a storm is headed Germany's way.

The votes aren't even real.

They are like dog biscuits from the NSA to keep people posting.

if you actually post something genuinely troublesome it is simply "shadow deleted".

By now everyone should know that ZH is an NSA operated site, set up to lure out potential "enemies of the state. They k now who all of us are, and just having a ZH account is enough to put you on "the list".

So, up-vote, down-vote, it doesn't matter. They are going to come for you anyway.

If the riots did not occur in a beer hall, it is meaningless.

This is just the communists demonstrating their willingness to act out in violent fashion to oppress the nationalists within the country, nothing more.



You can be sure this will only strengthen the resolve of the nationalist groups. Either the communists really do not understand human nature, or the mindset of the nationalists which is what I am betting on, or they really think they have a chance of seizing power.

Gee, didn't we just see this movie in Germany about 80 or 90 years ago?

<--Enemy of the state

<--Slave to the state

Police states offer those two choices.

People who post on ZH are sitting on their bottoms posting online.  We're are not very threatening to the NSA.  I'm sure the NSA is reading our posts, since it is easy for them to do in those few scarce minutes when they're not busy with online porn, but even they can't get excited by us.

If it weren't for the fact that the state is the enemy, I'd say Ben Bernanke is the biggest enemy of the state to come along in decades...

Alles klar?

These protests are in the former East Berlin and the housing crisis a direct consequence of the annexation of East Berlin by the West and without a referendum to obtain the consent of the people most affected.

Compare with Sevastopol where there are no protests or homeless people.

Usual double standrards of the Western mainstream media.

Oh look a russian propaganda troll, with a rant that has no connect to the actual topic.

That's because the NSA is made up of chickens and sissies and concubines who would do anything for a .gov paycheck.

Including betrying America.

MDB_ is developing the character. Thing is, this commitment cuts off other directions later, if you are going for continuity and not breaking character. Funny as shit. Trav looks like a writer for The Accredited Times. Trav hates him some "niggers." God if folks don't know it is a joke now, there is nothing you can do for them.

Breaking character a little, once in a while, adds back a human element. One does not even need to be human for it to work.

You're confusing breaking/developing character with intellectual vacuum-- he just has conflicted thoughts because he has no center.

Aren't jokes supposed to be funny?

Please don't encourage our resident little retard MDB.  He'll continue if you pretend you think he is funny.  He is not.  He is repetitious and dull.

Why do I feel that there was a different MDB six years ago that went by a slightly different moniker, who has been kidnapped and had his/her/their identity stolen by this imposter inferior MDB? I do not think this is imagined..? This has been puzzling me for some time :./

For years I thought he was being ironic, but not anymore. He believes the pablum he writes. Otherwise he wouldn't waste time with his website that reflects his ridiculous views.

Social unrest seems to be a recurring theme around the world- wherever the leftist filth resides and are funded by Soros.

1. Look at the groups that protest:

A. In America: Black people who have problems since forever

B. Germany: Sqauters: They've always been outsiders.


Nop... It's only serious if they would be normal students or middle class people.

NidStyles's picture

A) Most of those faces at the actual protests are white. Only at the riots do you see nothing but blacks.


B) These are not squatters, they are atifa, whom are mostly children of middle and upper class homes whom are just looking to destroy property and fight against their own well-being because they are morons.

Wasn't Bader Meinhoff the same or were they Operation Gladio See Eye Aye stooges?

I watched a good documentary about Krautrock and they said it was rebellion that young people were rebelling because the same nazis post WW2 were in charge,

Nazis really = elite and corporatists.  Nazism was really corporatism aka big business just like Apple, Amazon, Facebook, and the rest of today..
