By | January 20, 2015

January 19, around four thousand people took part in march in German town of Osnabrück (land of lower Saxony). Protesters remembered victims of Paris attack and also demanded stop to proliferation of fascism and nazism.

Slogan of the protest was “we’re not just Charlie anymore”. Thus, protesters emphasized that today’s problems in the world are bigger than one tragedy in France. Some protesters carried banners that read “Je Suis Odessa” to remember those who was killed by neo-nazi Ukrainians in Odessa, Ukraine on May 2, 2014. After mobs of armed violent men took control of the government in Kiev in February of 2014 they moved on to cities in the east of Ukraine. On May 2nd, 2014 they reached city of Odessa where they chased several dozen people that opposed violent coup in Kiev into the trade building and set the building on fire where over 40 people burnt alive. Those who managed to escape the fire were shot, beaten and humiliated.

Europe is slowly waking up. Fascist factions that took control of the government and the army in Ukraine reminded good people of the world that evil still exists.

Similar rallies were held in other German cities.
