Mike Conner & Mishko Novosel interview Alaric Pfeiffer of europanetwork.org. Alaric is a journalist who reported on the Feb. 13 memorial march for the victims of the Dresden bombing. Topics include:
- A recounting of the Allies’ tragic 1945 bombing of Dresden, and the criminal nature of that bombing
- The motivations of the marchers, and the peaceful, solemn, democratic nature of their memorial march
- How the police, particularly the German Federal police — not the “antifascist” protesters — were the primary force thwarting the march
- How the police thwarted the march in defiance of Saxony’s Supreme Court’s ruling that the march was legal and democratic; how police overriding the civil authority is the textbook definition of a police state, and not of a democracy.
- Prospects for the future: Why the marches will continue, and why police state tactics will eventually fail in eastern Germany.
