Together Against the Right – Demonstrations in Leipzig and Saxony on January 21, 2024
Call for Demonstration in Leipzig (3 PM at the Marketplace)
It’s high time we stand together for our democracy, diversity, and a united society! Therefore, everyone come to the marketplace in Leipzig for the “Together Against the Right” demonstration! On Sunday, January 21, 2024, at 3 PM, we will unite in the fight against right-wing extremism and stand up for democracy and diversity.
In a year marked by important elections in Saxony – the European, municipal, and state elections – it is more important than ever that we stand “Together Against the Right.” Right-wing extremist threats pose a serious danger to our democratic values, and it’s time for us as a strong civil society to raise our voice.
Nationwide Demos Against the Right
The “Together Against the Right” demo in Leipzig is not just a local event, but part of a larger, nationwide movement against right-wing extremism. We meet at the marketplace to present a united front as “Leipzig Against the Right” and to contribute to its success. Our rally is a peaceful protest speaking out against the AfD, against racism, and for civil courage.
Come to Leipzig
The majority must no longer remain silent. Bring your family and friends to our demo against the right in Leipzig. Every voice counts in the fight against right-wing hate. That’s why this Sunday, we’re hitting the streets with a broad civil society alliance. Let’s make the democratic majority visible together – and show a clear stance against right-wing hate!

Can I bring flags and banners?

Is there a special concept for families with children at the demonstration?
The entire event is family and child-friendly. Our gatherings are peaceful and accessible for children and older people.
We will designate an area for people with children at the marketplace in front of the old city hall. There will be a family block at the end of the procession. Here it is quieter and there is more space. If it does become too much, it is easier to leave the gathering from here.
Please still make sure that your children are doing well. Demonstrations are often loud and many people crowd together, which can be intimidating. We strongly recommend bringing hearing protection for children.

What is the aim of the “Together Against the Right” demonstration in Leipzig?
The goal of the “Together Against the Right” demonstration in Leipzig, on January 21, 2024, is to send a strong signal against right-wing extremism and for democracy and diversity.
A central motivation for this demonstration is the latest revelations by Correctiv about AfD members and a secret meeting where deportations were discussed. This highlights the need to take action and publicly stand against such dangerous and anti-democratic tendencies.
Therefore, the “Together Against the Right” demonstration in Leipzig is also intended to serve as a starting point for engagement in 2024 and for further gatherings and societal discussions. Issues such as a possible AfD party ban are at the forefront. It’s about forming a strong, civil societal response to right-wing extremism and showing that the democratic majority will no longer remain silent but will actively stand up for its values.
