Revolutionary Mayday demo in Berlin

May 1st 2015 – Thousands of people marched through the streets in Berlin to protest against local, national and global policy with topics ranging from social, environmental and capitalistic issues. Compared to the rowdy Mayday demos in the late 1980s, 1990s and early 2000s the protest was calm with just 53 people being detained by police and 5 of them being charged for resisting arrest and breach of the peace.
