More ‘Invasion of Europe’ news…..
From the UK Independent:
Up to 1,000 protesters have clashed with police in eastern Germany in riots reportedly sparked by the arrival of 250 migrants.
Police said protesters shouting “foreigners out” and carrying banners against the “asylum flood” threw bottles and stones at busloads of asylum seekers arriving in Heidenau, near Dresden.
At least 31 officers were hurt in violent scuffles as police used tear gas to disperse crowds.
Peaceful demonstrations began after news spread that the town was welcoming a large number of refugees who are set to be housed in an empty building. (then they turned violent)
Chancellor Angela Merkel has said the influx of asylum seekers is the biggest problem Europe currently faces. Germany, which has relatively liberal asylum laws, is taking in more refugees than any other European country, many from war-torn countries like Syria and Iraq.
There is also another bit of news from the UK. It seems that immigration has surpassed concern for the economy as the number one issue on peoples’ minds there.
