The far-right Wir für Deutschland (WfD) group has called for a demonstration to take place in Berlin on Wednesday, October 3, to demand, among other things, that border controls be reintroduced along German borders, and to call for a referendum on leaving the European Union. According to local sources, demonstrators will gather at Europaplatz from 14:00 to 17:00 (local time). A counter-demonstration to denounce a recent spate of demonstrations by the far-right will be held simultaneously along Friedrichstrasse and Johannisstrasse. A heightened security presence and associated transportation disruptions are anticipated in the vicinity of the demonstrations.
Individuals in Berlin are advised to monitor developments to the situation, avoid all protests and demonstrations as a precaution, and adhere to all instructions issued by the local authorities.
