Protests Over Immigrants – level 2

14-09-2018 07:00

Since 2015, an influx of 1 million immigrants have come into Germany, which has made some people uncomfortable.

In Chemitz, Germany, thousands of protesters came together because of an alleged killing of a German by immigrants. Many protesters wore black at the ‘mourning march’.

Police had to stop some of the protest when it became violent, and they tried to keep the protesters away from people who disagreed with them. About 2,000 people went to a different protest to support immigrants.

Difficult words: influx (a lot), alleged (some people say that it is true), mourning march (when people march to support someone who died).

You can watch the original video in the Level 3 section.
