Protests against AfD party Meeting in Cologne

More then 10000 people gather to protest against the AfD party meeting in Cologne. On April 22nd 2017 activists set up road blocks in the morning to make it harder for participants to reach the Maritim Hotel where the meeting is held until April 23rd. Police pushed into roadblocks several times and arrested some activists. Party members were guided through counter-protest or had to enter the blocked area through some smaller roads.
At 11AM a huge counter-demonstration was held under the slogan “Solidarität statt Hetze”. A vast mass of citizens joined protest that stayed relatively peaceful. The only unpeaceful events we whitnessed were a broken window of a bank and a bottle that was thrown at a McDonalds restaurant.
