Members of the far-right Identitarian Movement scaled Berlin’s Brandenburg Gate on Saturday and unfurled a banner to protest against the “Islamisation” of Germany via mass immigration.
Around 15 protesters spent about 50 minutes on top of the Brandenburg Gate, a short walk from the German parliament, before coming down, a spokesman for Berlin’s police force said.
They hung a banner calling for “secure borders–secure future” from the structure and waved flags bearing the Identitarian Movement’s black and yellow logo.
Flyers from the movement said Germans were “becoming a minority” due to immigration and urged people to take action against “Islamisation”.
The Identitarian Movement is being monitored by the Germany’s domestic intelligence agency. A spokesman for the agency said this month there were indications the group’s activities went “against the free democratic order”.
