Dagbladet avfeier de voldelige demonstrasjoner i Hamburg, der 29 politimenn ble såret i en konfrontasjon med venstreradilkale ekstremister som «bråkmakere». Vanligvis så hadde de blitt kalt terrorister, men det er tydelig at media ønsker å skåne sine yndlinger fra dårlig omtale.
The Local: Anarchists from Hamburg’s autonomous scene battled police for six hours late Saturday and early Sunday in the trendy Schanzenviertel neighbourhood after a street fair. At least 67 rioters were arrested and 27 police officers injured.
Over 10,000 visitors visited the Schanzenfest street fair, but once it turned dark, over 1,000 young, masked anarchists came out to do battle, police said. The rioters threw bottles, stones and fireworks at police.
“The fusillade was extremely massive,” police spokesman Ralf Meyer told the daily Hamburger Abendblatt, who said the anarchists were more aggressive than in past years. For years, the Schanzenfest has often concluded with clashes between police and the left-wing, anti-fascist Autonomen, or “Black Bloc.”
