Window of the party office of the Greens smashed

Between 1st and 3rd December 2023, an attack was carried out on the office of Tim Pargent, a member of the state parliament of the Bündnis 90/Die Grünen party. During the attack, the large window at the entrance was smashed with a stone, causing property damage of around 2000 euros. According to the police, a political motive is suspected. “Even during the election campaign, we had to notice a brutalization in the tone of conversation,” Pargent said. He is concerned about the condition of society as a whole and assumes a targeted attack on his person or his party: “(…) in the case of an attack on a parliamentarian’s office, you have to assume at least a political motive,” he said in an interview with the newspaper “Kurier”.

Threats and insults of the “GRÜNE” Youth

As (19.9.21) wrote, in the night from Friday to Saturday in Bayreuth campaigning activists of the “GRÜNE” Youth were attacked by suspected right-wing violent criminals.

First, at 9:30 p.m. in Von-Römer-Strasse, a group of young adults verbally attacked the campaigners and threatened them with “death and rape fantasies.”” Later that night, the GJ activists were attacked again. An unknown man kicked over a beer table “under wild insults” and threatened to burn a “GRÜNE” Youth flag they had brought with them.

The day before, the car tires of the “GRÜNE” direct candidate Susanne Bauer had also been punctured during a party event in the city center. “We have reported all incidents to the police and condemn the aggressors in the strongest possible terms. At this point, however, we would also like to expressly thank fellow citizens who showed solidarity with us during and after the incidents,” commented Johanna Schmidtmann, spokesperson for the GRÜNE Youth Bayreuth.
