Hundreds of University of Cologne students protested a planned visit of Marcus Pretzell, a member of the right-wing Alternative for Germany party (AfD) and a member of the European Parliament. Students carried red cards reading “Against Racism” and banners with “No floor to AfD” on them. Pretzell, who had been invited to give a speech at a discussion event by a student newspaper, was forced to cancel his visit because of the uproar.
