Thousands of protesters gathered in the German city of Munich on Thursday against the June Group of Seven (G7) summit which will be held over the weekend of June 7-8 in southern state of Bavaria.
The rally has so far been peaceful, bringing together activists defending various causes, from anti-globalisation to peace, ecology and human rights.
Protesters marched toward the Alpine venue in which Chancellor Angela Merkel will welcome G7 Leaders. They chanted “Stop TTIP - Save the Climate - Fight Poverty" and "Throw your treaty in the garbage."
Nearly 3,000 police officers were present at the rally and it took place without the occurrence of violent incidents, TRT World News reported.
The spokesman for an alliance of non-governmental organisations, Markus Weber, announced that the peaceful protests will continue during the two-day meetings.
Around the area, preparations were underway to enforce the security of the world’s most powerful heads of state.Güncelleme Tarihi: 05 Haziran 2015, 16:15
