Germany: Antifa activists protest against Germany's military involvement in Syria

Germany, Berlin
December 22, 2015 at 11:28 GMT +00:00 · Published

Around 200 people marched through the Wedding district of northern Berlin, Tuesday, to protest against Germany's involvement in the Syrian conflict.

The protest was organised by Antifa activists who held banners reading "Hands off Syria" and "No war. But classwar."

On December 4, members of Germany's Parliament voted to join the war against the so-called Islamic State (IS, formerly ISIS/ISIL) in Syria. Although German troops would not be in active combat, they would act to provide military support to the ongoing operations against Syrian militants, supporting in particular the missions launched by France. The vote passed, as was expected, with 445 votes for joining the conflict in Syria, 146 against and 7 abstentions. 1,200 soldiers of the German Bundeswehr forces are to be sent to the region.
