SOT, Michael Bruck, The Right party member (German): "This here is currently a special German wall. The wall in the background is being guarded 24/7 by police, because a graffiti by the city authorities was painted there, promoting tolerance and understanding. Previously, there was symbol of the national movement and the city guarded this 24/7 every day. Therefore, it seems that police wanted to demonstrate how unacceptable it was and they wanted to act against the right. That is a completely related approach, against which we carried out multiple actions last week.

SCRIPT
Dortmund's neo-Nazi movement protested the city authorities attempt to tackle far-right extremism in a so-called 'Nazi' quarter on Friday.
Anti-fascists organised a counter-demonstration to oppose the march. The protest quickly turned violent, with police making several arrests.
The local courts recently banned several neo-Nazi slogans painted in Dortmund's Dorstfeld, a known stronghold for the far-right in the city.
One wall was repainted with the words 'Our colours are beautiful' and now is under permanent police protection. Local far-right leader Michael Bruck criticised the measure in an interview.
In a statement, police commissioner Gregort Lange back the court's decision and vowed to use a zero-tolerance approach to all expressions of right-wing extremism.
