Bürger für Erfurt/Facebook


Tensions arise in the German city of Erfurt between ethnic right wing Germans and Muslim immigrants, when a mosque is planned to being build in the city.

Some German activists protest by setting up giant wooden Christian crucifixes on the ground were the mosque is supposed to being build on.

In early March, the first 10-meter-high wooden cross was erected on a piece of private land owned by the local Muslim Ahmadiyya community according to RT.

The cross was set up by a group that call themselves ‘Bürger für Erfurt’ (Citizens for Erfurt), aided by the anti-immigrant club ‘Ein Prozent’ (One Percent) from neighboring Saxony, which published a video-report of the action on Facebook.
