Thousands protest in Berlin in wake of Halle shooting

Several thousand protesters gathered in central Berlin to show solidarity against antisemitism and right-wing violence after a terrorist attack left two dead in Halle.

Under the motto “Not even an inch: Death to antisemitism and racism,” demonstrators met at the Bebelplatz public square in front of Humboldt University in the heart of the German capital.

Organisers from the Unteilbar (Indivisible) initiative, who called the large demonstration along with other groups, said 10,000 people had registered to take part.

A similar demonstration also took place in Halle.

Several thousand people also demonstrated in cities across Germany against right-wing extremism in light of the attack.

In the western city of Marburg, some 3,000 people turned out for a march, while in Hamburg, 1,200 demonstrators showed up.
