New Year's Eve party in Berlin to have 'safe zone' for women

Organisers of Berlin's New Year's Eve celebrations are to set up a "safe zone" for women for the first time.

The new security measures planned for the Brandenburg Gate party come amid concerns about sexual assaults.

A large number of assaults and robberies targeting women at Cologne's New Year's Eve celebrations two years ago horrified Germany.

Hundreds of women reported being attacked by gangs of men with migrant backgrounds.

The events in Cologne heightened tensions in the country over the large influx of refugees and migrants - 1.1m people arrived in Germany in 2015, some, but by no means all, fleeing violence in Syria and Iraq.

Hundreds of thousands of people are expected to attend the New Year's Eve party in Berlin on Sunday and security will be strict. Large bags, such as rucksacks, and alcoholic drinks will be banned at the Brandenburg Gate.

Women who have been assaulted or feel harassed will be able to get support at a special "safety zone", staffed by the German Red Cross, on Ebertstrasse.

The city's police have also issued advice to women, encouraging them to seek help if they feel threatened and to carry a small bag with no valuables.

Cologne officials set up a "security point", staffed by social workers and psychologists, at the city's 2016 carnival following the New Year's Eve attacks.

But the idea of a special safe zone for women at large public events has not been welcomed by everyone.

Critics say it does not tackle the perpetrators of sexual violence, while some others complain it is discriminatory

Germany: Berlin’s “safe zone” for women fails to prevent New Year’s Eve sex assaults
Jan 1, 2018 10:32 am By Robert Spencer

“The creation of the safety area was heavily criticised by a German police union boss. He said it communicates a ‘devastating message’: ‘By doing so, one is saying there are safe zones and unsafe zones’ for women, a message that could result in ‘the end of equality, freedom of movement and self-determination’, he said.”
Yes, that’s exactly where it is leading, and that destination is called Sharia, aka, Merkel’s legacy.

“Several women sexually assaulted in Berlin during NYE: Safety area a total failure,” Voice of Europe, January 1, 2018:
Berlin’s newly constructed “safety area” for women, could not prevent several sexual assaults during the city’s New Year’s Eve celebrations.
At this moment, at least 13 cases were reported to the police and seven suspects were arrested in the German capital. Police refused to provide information about the ethnicity or the nationality of the perpetrators.
Near midnight, Berlin’s police tweeted that they were receiving the first reports of sexual assaults, a fact that was quickly picked up by German media….

In Bulgaria at a hotel in Varna there was a sign " No icecreams, No dogs, No handguns" Presumably rifles and machine guns were acceptable, who's gonna tell some cunt with an Uzi, "hey fuck off mate you ain't comin' in"

Strange they have never had to do this before, meanwhile government officals state that migrants are not to blame for increased crime.
