On Saturday July 15th a group around Thommy Frenck called Turonen / Garde 20 organized a neonazi rockconcert in a small village in Thüringen. More then 6000 neo-nazis came to listen to bands like: Sleipnir, Die Lunikoff Verschwörung, Stahlgewitter and several others. The event was announced as a political rally and the local admission failed to get the event prohibited in front of court. Journalists were insulted, spit at and physically attacked by participants of the event. Police did not see a chance to enter the public political rally with joutnalists and therefore reporting was only possible from outside. Neonazis were shouting “Ruldof Heß” after a speech in commemorance of Hitlers deputy.
