Clean-up efforts got underway in Frankfurt, Thursday morning following clashes between police and ‘Blockupy’ protesters the day before. Roads were reopened and people made their way to work without difficulty.

Tens of thousands of protesters from across Europe flooded the German city on Wednesday, following the opening of the new €1.3 billion ($1.4 billion) European Central Bank headquarters.

The protesters, who targeted the ECB, the EU (European Union) and the IMF (International Monetary Fund) for their austerity policies, accuse the institutions of favouring the rich over the poor, as well as maintaining and furthering income inequality.
