In order to find a solution to the frequent racist attacks in the country, Germany has made a move that will strike a blow to anti-Semitism. In the statement made by the Ministry of Interior, it was stated that the far-right Hammerskins and the groups called "Crew 38", which provide support to it, were banned on the grounds that they are against the constitutional order.
In the statement, it was noted that early in the morning after the ban decision, raids were carried out in 28 dwellings and residences in 10 states, and the assets of the group were seized.
"The ban is a heavy blow to organized right-wing extremism. With this ban, we are putting an end to the inhumane activities of an internationally active neo-Nazi organization in Germany. In doing so, we are sending a clear signal against racism and anti-Semitism,” German Interior Minister Nancy Faeser said.
"That is why we continue to act with all our determination to eradicate right-wing extremist structures,” she added.
Faeser stated that preparations for the ban had been made for a year and thanked the US authorities for their support.
"Hammerskins Germany", which has around 130 members in Germany, is an extension of "Hammerskins Nation", which was founded in the United States in 1988. The group organizes concert events in Germany and propagandizes for the far right.
With the cessation of the activities of "Hammerskins Germany", the number of racist organizations banned by the Ministry of the Interior has now reached 20.
