‘Asylum spray’ handed out in Denmark by far-right party ‘to ward off migrant attacks’

The anti-immigrant Party of the Danes has been spotted handing out cans of ‘asylum spray’ on the streets. The “legal and effective” way of opposing the “problem” of migrants was launched in Haderslev – the location of recent harassment reports.

Haderslev, a port city, was one of the places in Denmark where women complained about migrants harassing them at nightclubs, so it seemed like the perfect testing ground to Daniel Carlsen, the founder of the Danskernes Parti.

“I don’t think it is provocative. We are tackling an actual problem in our society, where many Danes feel unsafe,” Carlsen told TV Syd. “Partially because there are so many migrants in the country and partly because one isn’t allowed to defend one’s self.”

To keep things within the rule of law, hair spray was used for the campaign, as pepper spray use is forbidden in Denmark.

Last week’s antics in Haderslev quickly stirred controversy. Some found it hard not to be visibly upset by the display, as was the case with Charlotte Bech, from Silkeborg. Full story...
