The situation on the Belarusian-Polish border threatens to escalate more and more (Report24 reported). There were numerous videos on social media showing so-called “people in need of protection” who try to break through the Polish border fortifications, sometimes using brute force. Early Monday evening there were spontaneous solidarity rallies for the committed border guards of the Republic of Poland in Berlin and Munich – and isolated disruptive actions by left-wing extremist anti-fascist terrorists.

In the Berlin district of Grunewald, around 50 citizens gathered in front of the embassy of the Republic of Poland early on Monday evening to express their thanks to the Polish people for the steadfast defense of the European eastern border with Belarus. At the same time they also gathered in front of the Consulate General of the Republic of Poland in Munich. In addition to numerous Polish and German flags, the participants also held up signs that read “Thank you” in German and Polish. Users also showed solidarity with the Polish border guards on Twitter using the hashtag #DankePolen.
Polish television reports live on the rally
During the rally, which was also reported live on Polish television, those present exchanged views and expressed their thanks to the Polish people. “Poland deserves thanks on behalf of Germany, whose community and cohesion has already been affected too much by immigration, on behalf of the war-ravaged countries of origin (Syria, Iraq, etc.), which urgently depend on the young men for reconstruction, and also In the name of the migrants themselves who are caught up in an ugly fraud: The supposed paradise will prove to be an existence with no prospects at the bottom of society, ”Thorsten Peters, member of Alternative für Deutschland, told Report24, who traveled to the rally.
Instead of “We have space”, the following applies expressly: Our capacities are limited
The Bavarian state parliament member Katrin Ebner-Steiner (AfD) thanked the Republic of Poland for the “courageous border security”. “While Germany’s government apparently pretends to be limitless as a mantra, Poland shows what the very task of a nation-state is and has always been in history,” she added. Ebner-Steiner also praised Poland’s role model function for all European countries, “by taking responsibility for the entire EU,” Ebner-Steiner told Report24 on Monday evening. “Instead of fueling false hopes, it also shows that our reception capacities are limited,” said the member of the state parliament, referring to Poland’s involvement in the protection of the European external borders.
Member of the Bundestag presents the declaration to the Deputy Ambassador of the Republic of Poland
At the end of the rally in Berlin, member of the Bundestag Petr Bystron (AfD) presented the deputy Polish ambassador with a declaration. This contained the thanks of the German population to the brave Polish border guards and was personally signed by all participants. Petr Bystron is chairman of the AfD parliamentary group in the Foreign Affairs Committee and underlined that the Polish government consistently implemented the Schengen Agreement and recalled the agreement to protect the European external borders in every respect.
Massive criticism of the federal government’s invitation policy and welcoming culture
Bystron also sharply criticized the federal government for formally inviting migrants to transit to Germany. With its irresponsible invitation policy, the federal government is the main culprit for the recent migration crisis, explained Petr Bystron (AfD). The foreign policy official also recalled the often forgotten fact that during his visit to Iraq even the Iraqi president called on the German government to send all young Iraqis back to their homeland. They are urgently needed there for the reconstruction of the country. Meanwhile became known, The Iraqi government has already sent a machine to Belarus to bring Iraqi citizens back home on the border with Poland.
Occasional disruptive actions by left-wing radical station clappers in Munich
Overall, the rally in front of the embassy of the Republic of Poland in Berlin was unusually calm, and there were no reports of disruptions by violent left-wing extremists. For the solidarity rally taking place in Munich at the same time, however, numerous left-wing radicals gathered and attacked participants and members of parliament. The state parliament member Katrin Ebner-Steiner (AfD) was forcibly pushed against a tree by anti-fascist terrorists, but Ebner-Steiner was unimpressed and continued her conversations with the citizens present. The police intervened after observations, but showed little motivation to effectively put the violent anti-fascist rioters in their place. The Polish evening television then reported in the main news about the expressions of solidarity in the two major German cities as part of the program “Wiadomosci”.
