Fact Check: Right-wing Party AfD’s Protest March In Germany Viral With Fictitious Claims

Date:

A video showing an aerial view of a crowd of people filling the streets of a city has surfaced on social media, claiming that it is a pro-Palestinian march in Hamburg, Germany.

A Facebook user posted with a caption: “The people of Hamburg in Germany stand in support of Palestine.”

FACT CHECK

NewsMobile fact-checked the above claim, and found it to be False.

Running a Reverse Image Search on video keyframes, our NM team traced an Instagram post carrying the same video, dated February 2, 2024, with a caption: Hamburg, Germany. 🇩🇪. 🤯.

We also found a YouTube video having similar visuals, dated January 20, 2024, with a title: “Biggest Anti-AfD Protest Hits Hamburg”.

The description of the YouTube video informs that the rally attracted more than 80,000 people, making it the largest protest yet against the Alternative for Germany Party, also known as AfD.

Additionally, officials in Hamburg imposed a temporary ban on pro-Palestinian protests in October in response to a drastic increase in antisemitic activity, according to the Washington Post. An administrative court later overturned the ban, and police began allowing the demonstrations again in December.

Hence, we can conclusively say that a protest march against an extremist conservative political party in Hamburg has been falsely linked to the recent Israel-Hamas conflict.
