Scrubbing the right

In this mini-documentary of Deustche Welle, it depicts the struggle of Irmela Mensah-Schramm, a retired woman working hard against right-wing extremism. She scrubs and scrapes off stickers bearing far-right slogans and paints over graffiti. And she takes part in sit-in protests, all of which puts her at odds with the law. Her action inspired No Hate Speech Movement in Finland which used the idea for similar actions at festivals.
