Reichsburgerbewegung




Similar to the “Freemen” in English-speaking countries, groups also are forming in Germany that deny the validity and the authority of the state. One of these groups is headed by Peter Fitzek, who founded New Germany, or Kingdom Germany. Another similar movement is called Reichsbuergerbewegung, or Germanitia. Hans-Werner Carhoff gave a comprehensive presentation on this subject at the FECRIS conference on May 30, 2013 (http://griess.st1.at/gsk/fecris/copenhagen/Carlhoff_EN.pdf). [IT 4.1 2013] 

In a press release of December 30, 2012, the German Ministry of the Interior warned against the Reichsbürgerbewegung, which also is being observed by the Office for the Protection of the Constitution. The group has sent threatening letters to Jewish and Islamic groups asking them to leave the country; otherwise, they would be shot. The Ministry believes there is a risk that radicalized individuals may perform terrorist attacks, similar to that of the Norwegian Anders Breivik. [IT 4.1 2013] 

The Reichsbürgerbewegung (Reich citizens’ movement) is an extreme right-wing political cult, which denies the legality of the German Federal Republic. The group is monitored by the Service for Protection of the Constitution. [IT 3.2 2012]
