FURIOUS protesters have demanded that German Chancellor Angela Merkel resigns because too many immigrants have reached the country.
Thousands of ‘Merkel Must Go’ demonstrators marched through Berlin on Saturday waving banners reading: “No Islam on German soil" and “refugees not welcome".
Police had to deploy tear gas as pro mass-migration demonstrators, cheered on by German politicians, tried to force their way through police lines and attack the right-wing protesters.
Turkish-born German politician Hakan Tas, a member of the national radical Left party, claimed he was attacked by right-wing activists at a subway station on Saturday but sustained no injuries.
Left-wing demonstrators also held a "rave against Nazism" as amateur DJ's and nightclub promoters lined the streets playing loud music.
The 1,800 strong march comes after a recent survey showing just 1 per cent of Germans said they wanted Islam to be a part of Germany.
In October, research found four-fifths of Germans thought the country should regain border controls, a policy against which Merkel is strongly set.
Two million migrants entered Germany in 2015 alone — the country's highest level of net migration since the Second World War.
Official figures reveal that the number of foreigners registering in Germany rocketed by an astonishing 49 per cent after Merkel controversially rolled out the red carpet to all Syrians.
Almost two million people born abroad registered for the first time in 2015 while just 860,000 left the country — a net migration gain of 1.14 million people, according to Germany's Federal Statistical Office.
