During New Year's Eve, the wonderful nation that is Germany was surprised when hundreds of cases of stealing, groping, and rape were reported simultaneously, especially in Cologne. Aside from Cologne, some reports indicated that these multiple events occurred also in Stuttgart, Frankfurt, Hamburg, Bielefeld, and Dusseldorf. Apparently, there was a massive wave of sexual assault that victimized the women of Germany. It was a truly horrible event that ruined the new year.
Apparently, 18 of the suspects were people who wanted to be placed in an asylum. Because of the unbelievable sexual assault on hundreds of women all at the same time, a discussion was sparked regarding immigrants, crime, and the cultural differences between Muslim and European nations. In addition, women were justifiably outraged at the news of these several instances of alleged sexual assault. In fact, one brave woman is protesting the attacks by being nude and by showing that women should be respected regardless of their clothes.
An artist in Cologne, Germany has started to protest against the recent incident of hundreds of women being sexually assault during New Year's Eve.
Milo Moire is a Swiss artist who has decided to stand naked in front of Cologne's cathedral to demand respect for women.
Milo Moire was holding a placard that said that respect should be given to women, even if they are fully clothed or naked. If hundreds of women are sexually assaulted, what kind of society are we allowing our kids to live in?
The Swiss artist was infuriated at the fact that the police did not do a good job in preventing or handling the incidents of theft and sexual assault that numbered in the hundreds during New Year's Eve.
Sensing that some people are trying to push the issue of immigration and even toward banning Muslims from entering Germany, Milo Moire did the right thing and said that the religion, race or ethnicity of the attacker does not matter. What should be dealt with are the attacks and the attackers, and the issue should not be used to discriminate a whole group of people.
Cologne is a city that is more than 2,000 years old. The city has beautiful buildings with High Gothic architecture. Cologne is also regarded as the cultural hub of Western Germany.
Because Wolfgang Albers was unable to properly handle the New Year's Eve sexual assaults, he was fired from being the police chief of Cologne.
