News / Mehar Shafiq - 3 years ago German Government Calls Far-Right Rallies in Chemnitz 'Message of Hatr .. The demonstrations of far-right extremists and neo-Nazi supporters in the eastern German city of Chemnitz, where migrants are suspected of killing a German man, have nothing to do with mourning the victim and instead are a demonstration of hatred to foreigners and democracy, German government spokesman Steffen Seibert said on Monday.</p><p>On August 26, a 35-year-old German national was stabbed to death in a brawl in Chemnitz. The suspects in the case are a 23-year-old Syrian national and a 22-year-old Iraqi national. The situation has resulted in large-scale far-right protests in the area.</p><p>"Unfortunately, what we have witnessed over the past days and the end of last week � these demonstrations of right-wing and neo-Nazi extremists, who are ready to commit violence � has nothing to do with mourning over a person or concern about the state and coexistence. This is a message of hatred to foreigners, politicians, police, the free press and, eventually, our democratic Germany," Seibert told a press briefing.</p><p>These right-wing protesters represented neither Chemnitz nor Saxony, the state where it was located, the spokesman continued.
