City faces Nazi cri­sis

Mercury (Hobart) - - WORLD -

THE Ger­man city of Dres­den has passed a res­o­lu­tion aimed at strength­en­ing democ­racy and pro­tect­ing mi­nori­ties amid grow­ing con­cern about far­right ex­trem­ism.

Ger­man news agency dpa re­ported that city coun­cil­lors passed a res­o­lu­tion with the head­line “Nazi cri­sis?” which warned that anti-demo­cratic and ex­trem­ist views and even vi­o­lence were be­com­ing more ap­par­ent in Dres­den.

Dres­den is home to the anti-mi­grant group PEGIDA and the far-right Al­ter­na­tive for Ger­many party.
