AfD Youth Wing Furious Over Berlin Pride Parade Ban

07/17/2018 |

The youth wing of the far-right Alternative for Germany (AfD) has complained after being denied a stall at this year’s Berlin Pride event, Christopher Street Day (CSD), saying it has been unfairly excluded. CSD organizers have rejected an application by David Eckert, head of the Berlin chapter of AfD youth wing Junge Alternative, for a stall at Europe’s largest LGBT street party at the end of July. Eckert, 26, took to Facebook to complain about the decision, publishing what he claimed was an email from CSD organizers saying that “people and organizations who try to create a climate of fear and exclusion such as the AfD … are not welcome” at the parade.
