Anti-foreigner rally in Berlin draws ten times more protesters than expected

Anti-foreigner rally in Berlin draws ten times more protesters than expected. 3,000 right-wing protesters, including known neo-Nazis, marched through Berlin’s government quarter on Saturday, chanting “Merkel must go” and “We are the people” in an anti-immigration rally that drew ten times more people than police had expected.

The right-wing protestors were met by a counter demonstration of roughly 1,000 people from an alliance of left-wing groups, unions, churches and Germany’s Turkish Association carrying the banner “Asylum is a right, racism isn’t.”
