'Death to antisemitism': Thousands protest in Berlin in wake of Halle synagogue shooting

Several thousand protesters gathered in central Berlin on Sunday to show solidarity against antisemitism and right-wing violence after a terrorist attack left two dead in Halle last week.

Under the motto "Not even an inch: Death to antisemitism and racism," demonstrators met at the Bebelplatz public square in front of Humboldt University in the heart of the German capital.
Organizers from the Unteilbar (Indivisible) initiative, who called the large demonstration along with other groups, said 10,000 people had registered to take part. A spokesman for the group said the protest march from Bebelplatz would begin at 2 pm (1200 GMT).

A similar demonstration was also planned in Halle on Sunday.
A march through the eastern city's centre was being organized with those from the doener kebab shop where a 20-year-old man was killed. After the march, demonstrators will hold a rally where people can speak out about the attacks and where music will be played in honour of the two victims - the man as well as a 40-year-old woman.

Several thousand people also demonstrated in cities across Germany on Saturday against right-wing extremism in light of the attack.
