Date of incident: September 17, 2014

Category: Social Hostility / Intolerance

Attack against: Morals

Area of case: Political

The regional council of the Left party in Türingen (Landesvorstand der Linken Thüringens) called the March for life organized every year by the national association of right to life as „an anti-feminist, anti-emancipatory and conservative dirt“.

A hope that a counter-demonstration against the march would spoil the pro-life march was also expressed by the politician. These moves are supported by the SPD, the green political party and several more groups that call themselves anti-fascist groups.
