A far-right group opposed to immigration in Germany has hung a banner from Berlin’s Brandenburg Gate and distributed anti-Islamization flyers in one of the city’s major tourist hotspots.

Up to 15 members of the Identitarian Movement climbed the historic 18th-century gate on Saturday before unveiling a large banner which read “secure borders – secure future.”

The group, which is calling for an end to be put to the nation’s open border policy, also distributed leaflets demanding that the apparent “Islamization” of German society be thwarted, according to Reuters.

The movement, which has affiliate groups throughout the continent, suggested in Facebook post that Europe should become a “fortress,” explaining that their demonstration was intended to fight against “uncontrolled mass migration” to Germany.

“We send a signal to the Identitarian youth of Europe: Defend yourselves against the rampant immigration in your countries and against the Islamization moving more and more [sic],” the post added.

Saturday’s incident began at around 11 am and lasted approximately 50 minutes, during which time protesters set flares off from the top of the iconic city landmark.
