The Germans 'occupy' Berlin as others do the same

Hundreds of people took to the streets in Frankfurt, Hamburg and Berlin to rally against the “financial evil”. They want “freedom for people, not corporations”. The protesters don’t want further bailout and don’t fully support the government’s actions. In Frankfurt the people gathered in front on the European Central Bank.

According to, the Germans demand the closure of banks’ dictatorship and of the multinational corporations. They also rally against war and racism.

"We're lacking democracy in this country. There are structures to keep us isolated from one another; they make us compete instead of cooperate," Christian Wollghast says.

The first protest, named “Occupy Wall Street” started 28 days ago on Wall Street in New York City, USA. Later, the protests by-passed the globe, extending to the largest cities of the world – Tokyo, Hong Kong, Tel Aviv, London, Paris, Rome, Barcelona, Berlin, Bucharest, Amsterdam and others under “Occupy” chant.
