against AfD demo
Tens of thousands of people took to the streets to protest against the Alternative for Germany (AfD) demonstration in Berlin on Sunday, reportedly vastly outnumbering AfD supporters. Local media estimated the number of pro and anti AfD protesters at 25,000. Supporters of the AfD reached their destination at the Brandenburg Gate, but were met by counter protesters on all sides. Riot police stood in guard between the two sides. At least one counter protester was detained with no further information on what grounds. According to German media, more than 2,000 police officers were deployed including K9 units and police officers on horses.
