On the internet "young, clever, self-sacrificing activists" are being recruited for summer camps: the radical right-wing Identitäre Bewegung (IB) [Identiarian Movement] is now being monitored by the Verfassungsschutz [Agency for Protection of the Constitution].
The Verfassungsschutz has taken aim at the radical right-wing Identitäre Bewegung (IB), which strictly rejects immigration from other cultures. "Some state officials are now looking at the identitarians more closely because, for them, the threshold for monitoring has been reached," said the president of the Federal Office for Protection of the Constitution, Hans-Georg Maaßen, to the "Rheinischen Post".
"We have noted that in various federal states they have gone from pure internet activities to meetings in real life." The movement aims to protect Germany's identity from mass immigration and sees itself as a "metapolitical and activist arm of the New Right". The IB also offers "physical fitness" training in so-called summer camps and sees itself as being "at the beginning of a turning point in history".
It is mainly young, male and quite well-educated people who are involved in the movement. They avoid criminal offences such as painting swastikas, assault and incitement to hatred. From the end of 2014 the identitiarians seem to have strengthened their appearance in Saxony-Anhalt. Since then they have increased the frequency of their actions. Instead of operating in secret, the members spread their activities openly on the internet, where they boast about their actions.Source
