Germany: Thousands confront anti-Merkel rally in Hamburg

Germany, Hamburg
November 7, 2018 at 22:58 GMT +00:00 · Published

Around 2,000 left-wing demonstrators took to the streets of Hamburg on Wednesday, to oppose the "Merkel must go" rally organised by far-right groups.

Anti-Merkel demonstrators held signs denouncing the German Chancellor's multiculturalism policy and called for the end of what they described as "Merkel's dictatorship". On their end, left-wing demonstrators chanted anti-racism slogans and held banners condemning the far-right-led anti-immigration campaign.

Riot police confronted antifa activists at the Dammtor train station, as the demonstrators tried to block the station in order to prevent the far-right activists' arrival.

Apart from the stand-off inside the station, no serious clashes occurred, according to police.
