Anti-capitalists reoccupy area around central bank
FRANKFURT — Anti-capitalist activists pitched tents outside the European Central Bank in Frankfurt on Sunday, four days after police cleared out an earlier encampment.
An activist from the Occupy Frankfurt collective told Agence France-Presse that the city had given protesters permission to camp until Wednesday.
“But discussions with the city for an extension will take place from tomorrow,” said Thomas, who like many demonstrators declined to give his last name.
“After all that’s happened in the last few days, I can’t imagine the city refusing,” he added.
Police on Wednesday cleared out a camp that had been occupied for seven months in front of the ECB, ahead of huge anti-capitalism protests that took place over the weekend.
Some of the demonstrators hurled paint at police who were moving them, but the clearing of the Occupy Frankfurt camp was mainly peaceful.
More than 20,000 people rallied in Frankfurt on Saturday.
