Germany takes part in global economic protests

“As more global support mobilises for Spain’s Indignado movement and Occupy Wall Street in the United States, it was Germany’s turn to show its anger about economic injustice.
Protesters gathered outside the European Central Bank building in Frankfurt, holding banners with slogans against tough austerity measures and corporate greed.

All over the world, ordinary people feel that they are bearing the brunt of the global economic crisis and suffering disproportionately. One protester said she felt it was time for change: “We always have to take the blame for what the financial markets are doing. It can’t continue.”

Another man at outside the ECB building said radical action was needed: “Now is the time for a revolution.””
