Thousands in Germany protest racism, attacks on refugees
Thousands of people have gathered in the German city of Stuttgart to protest racism and violence against refugees. Tensions have heightened recently following the events that occurred in Cologne on New Year's Eve.
More than 7,000 people gathered in Stuttgart Saturday to protest racism and violence against asylum-seekers. "Whether it's cowardly arson attacks on refugee shelters or persecuting foreigners or sexual violence, we will show them the red card," the Protestant state bishop of Württemberg, Frank Otfried July, told the gathering, as people waved flags showing the symbol of peace.
German press agency DPA's editor posted this picture from the protest:
