Antifa "artists" cover slogans in Dortmund with colorful images in move sanctioned by city authorities and police after project was commissioned by Jewish-Liberal "civil society" group.
Under the watchful eye of Dortmund police, the antifa graffitists covered National Socialists slogans with "colorful images" in the city’s Dorstfeld district.
The move was commissioned by a civil society group called "Association for Diversity, Tolerance and Democracy", and sanctioned by city authorities and police.
City authorities said the nationalist graffiti has been “a thorn in the eye” for years, used by “neo-Nazis to intimidate and scare away people who think differently.”
The top security official in North Rhine-Westphalia state, Herbert Reul, said “neo-Nazis mustn’t be given a millimeter’s room.”
Dorstfeld has in the past seen numerous violent attacks by antifascists and non-white migrants.
