A group of protesters gathered in front of Brandenburg Gate in Berlin, demanding a halt to NATO’s expansion, on Thursday.

 

The protesters called for peace between Europe and Russia, stating that only then can there be peace in the West. They held up banners and placards saying “NO US/NATO criminal-wars superpower politics” and “Ban the export of military equipment.” After Brandenburg Gate the protesters marched to the Russian embassy, where they formed a chain by holding each other’s hands.
