Easter Peace March in Berlin

It was heart-warming to discover that the tradition of an annual peace march is still being kept up. I fondly remember going on Easter CND peace marches in England in my youth, and the camaraderie of linking hands  at Aldermaston and Greenham Common.

This year around a thousand people marched through Berlin under the motto Die Waffen nieder (Lay down your weapons) and was particularly focused on the escalating crisis in Ukraine.

A great event, though not sure about the giant model of a dove on a car-roof heading-up the parade - it was rather naff!

More about the march on RBB (in German).
