A leftist artwork collective in Germany mentioned they have been launching a challenge to establish neo-Nazi rioters. In actuality, it was a hoax to trick neo-Nazis into outing themselves.
This summer season unleashed a wave of violence in Chemnitz, Germany, the place far-right extremists chased down immigrants and threw fascist salutes throughout a multi-day rally. The Nazi-era salutes are unlawful in Germany, however most demonstrators evaded arrest and identification. However the artwork group Heart for Political Magnificence (abbreviated as “ZPS” in German) wished to unveil the extremist networks behind the riots. They constructed an internet site that claimed to have recognized the Chemnitz rioters. Then they sat again and waited whereas extremists began looking out the location for their very own names till ZPS revealed the stunt on Wednesday.
“We thought of a brand new de-Nazification in Germany and the way it may work,” Philipp Ruch, ZPS’s inventive director, informed The Each day Beast.
