|[0:36]||The first large counter-demonstration began in the evening, more than 1,000 mainly young people wanting to show the right-wingers that they are unwelcome in Cologne.|
|[0:47]||“It’s something positive that there are people who, for example, support integration, support open borders ….”|
|[0:56]||“Because I don’t think it’s OK that they put on something like that here, the Nazis.”|
|[1:00]||The right-wingers’ meeting began the next morning with a surprise, Pro Köln had invited journalists to a press conference and then unexpectedly switched the location to a ship . However, counter-demonstrators quickly found the new meeting place and then the bottles and stones began to hail down.|
|[1:18]||Pro Köln had chartered the ship under the guise of planning a meeting of international lawyers; the ship’s owners said they felt they had been misled.|
|[1:26]||Then the news reached the right-wing politicians on board that the bus tour through Cologne which was planned for that afternoon would not take place because the bus company had cancelled the contract.|
|[1:35]||The ship drifted up and down the Rhine for hours, without a solution being found.|
|[1:40]||When they came ashore late in the afternoon the Cologne taxi drivers had also decided not to transport the politicians.|
|[1:47]||Finally in the evening the police used regular vehicles to drive them back to their hotel, then another surprise: they had to leave the hotel — the management doesn’t want to offer accommodation to “right-wing populists”.|
