Small town tricks Neo-Nazis into marching against themselves

German Town Tricks Neo-Nazis Into Holding Fundraising Walk for Anti-Nazi Charity

Every year, hundreds of Neo-Nazis gather in a small German town where Hitler's deputy Rudolf Hess was once buried, in a pilgrimage that upsets the locals who felt like they had to fight back. After many legal appeals that did not go through, the Wunsiedel inhabitants found the most hilarious way to prank the far-right marchers that flock to their city uninvited.

In November 2014, a group called Right Against Right tricked the marchers into raising €10,000 euros for an anti extremist organization. For every meter they walked, €10 euros would go to the EXIT Deutschland program, which deals with helping people escape extremist groups. In addition to that, the organizers hung posters that mocked the participants with sentences such as "If only the Führer knew" and thank-you notes for their involuntary donations. Even if the campaign named "the most involuntary walkathon" occurred months ago, the prank was so perfect that is still being talked about on social media.
