  • Description

    ANGRY DEMONSTRATIONS AGAINST THE NATIONAL DEMOCRATIC PARTY (N.P.D.) OCCURRED IN NUREMBERG LAST NIGHT (WEDNESDAY), FOLLOWING CLOSELY UPON THE CANCELLATION OF A MASSIVE N.P.D. RALLY. THE DEMONSTRATORS WERE LARGELY STUDENT SUPPORTERS OF THE WEST GERMANY TRADE UNION FEDERATION, AND OF THE THREE MAIN POLITICAL PARTIES.

    THERE WERE SEVERAL SCENES OF VIOLENCE AS POLICE FOUGHT TO CONTROL THE DEMONSTRATORS. MORE THAN 1,000 PEOPLE PACKED A SQUARE NEAR TO THE NUREMBERG FAIRS HALL WHERE THE N.P.D. CONGRESS WAS TO HAVE BEEN HELD.

    NUREMBERG MAYOR ANDREAS URSCHLECHTER TOLD THE CROWD THAT THE STEERING COMMITTEE OF THE CITY COUNCIL HAD DECIDED TO CANCEL ITS CONTRACT WITH THE NATIONAL DEMOCRATS FOLLOWING UPON HUGE PROTESTS FROM MEMBERS OF THE PUBLIC. THE N.P.D. MEETING HAD BEEN CALLED OFF WHEN IT BECAME CLEAR THAT THE NUREMBERG ADMINISTRATIVE COURT WOULD NOT HEAR IMMEDIATELY LEGAL ARGUMENTS AGAINST THE CANCELLING OF THE CONTRACT.

    TRADE UNION SPEAKERS RECALLED THE HORRORS FOR THE NAZI REGIME, AND URGED THE CROWD TO RENEW THE CALL FOR A BAN ON THE NATIONAL DEMOCRATS, ALLEGING THEY PURSUED AIMS SIMILAR TO THOSE OF ADOLF HITLER'S NAZI PARTY.
