According to reports, there have been numerous right-wing attacks in Neukölln. These include incidents of arson, vandalism, hate speech and threats against leftists and anti-fascists. The police has allegedly failed to bring the perpetrators to book in any of these cases. As years go by with no results to the official investigation, it appears as though the right-wing mob are getting help from inside the police departments and prosecutors’ offices. Mirjam Blumenthal, a centre-left SPD politician on the district council, has also been hit. Her car was set alight and a youth centre she runs has been hit by two arson attacks. Neo-Nazi symbols later appeared on the youth centre’s walls, alongside the words “We are burning with interest in you.”
