Tens of thousands in seven german cities on the streets against TTIP and CETA

Tens of thousands of demonstrators – the organisers speak of a total of 320,000 while the police talks about roughly half that number – today protested in Berlin, Hamburg, Munich, Cologne, Frankfurt, Leipzig and Stuttgart against the free trade agreements of the EU with USA and Canada, TTIP and CETA.

A broad alliance of environmental and consumers protection associations, trade unions, churches, Attac and Campact as well as green and left wing parties criticises with these demonstrations the content as well as the lack of transparency of the negotiations of these treaties.

Meanwhile, because of the continuing mass protests, TTIP has now diminishing support among german politicians while the government still stronlgy clings on CETA.

The protest in Berlin was partly inhibited by rain but on the whole it was again very creative and colourful, as you can see in these pictures taken by Max Brose.
