‘RAPEfugees not welcome’: German protesters clash with police over migrant sex assaults

Cologne ProtestsGerman Chancellor Angela Merkel may be Time Magazine’s Person of the Year for 2015, but it looks like the German people have had enough of her open door policy for Muslim refugees.

On Saturday, about 1,700 angry demonstrators from the anti-Islam PEDIGA movement took to the streets some clashing with law enforcement in Cologne, Germany to protest the sexual assaults of New Year’s Eve perpetrated by migrants, CNN reported.

Protesters threw rocks, bottles and firecrackers at police who responded with water cannons and tear gas as the demonstrations got heated throughout the day.

Police tried to keep them separated from a smaller number of counter protesters.

“Where were you on New Year’s Eve? Why didn’t you protect those women?” a protester yelled at the officers.

Of the 31 people charged in the New Year’s Eve assaults, most of them from Middle Eastern or North African countries, 18 were refugees, according to CNN.

Some of the protesters held signs with slogans like RAPEfugees not welcome.”

“I want to keep our space. I don’t want to give it to someone else. I have daughters,” an older woman told CNN’s Atika Shubert. “I may not be young anymore, but I don’t want anything to happen to them.”

“We have to be loud. Do what these women are doing right now,” another protester told Shubert. “If someone comes up and touches a woman, she should point the finger at them and stand up so other people can come and help her.”
