Germany: Rally for Donbass and against Europe's 'Americanisation'

Germany, Halle
February 21, 2015 at 09:30 GMT +00:00 · Published

Thousands of anti-American protesters took to the streets of Halle in Saxony, Saturday, to show support for the peoples of Donbass and protest the 'Americanisation of Europe.'

The demonstrators, brought together by so-called anti-imperialist group 'Committed Democrats against the Americanisation of Europe' (EnDgAmE), swamped the city's Marktplazt Halle central square. Protesters carried Russian, German flags and self-proclaimed Donetsk Peoples' Republic flags. Many bore anti-NATO and anti-American banners. A small counter demonstration attempted to block the protest, but the EnDgAme supporters stood their ground at the square.

Reportedly inspired by the anti-Islam party Patriotic Europeans Against the Islamization of the West (PEGIDA), EnDgAme, which held their first protest in January, sees the United States as a 'terrorist power.' The group also opposes the many free-trade treaties, including the Trans-Pacific Trade and Investment Partnership (TTIP), currently being negotiated by European leaders and the US, and call for a neutral and non-interventionist German state.
