Only about one third of German students are interested in current events and politics these days.
German far-right groups and hooligans sure seem pretty interested, though.
German authorities were considering measures to limit the right to demonstrate, after dozens of policemen were injured as a protest by far-right groups purportedly aimed against Islamic extremism turned violent.
North Rhine-Westphalia’s interior minister said freedom of assembly was misused by neo-Nazi groups and members of Germany’s football hooligan scene who held a rally in Cologne, western Germany, on Sunday 26 October.
“This was no political demonstration, but a platform for violence.”
