Many people in Germany have voiced their views against the rightwing AfD party. However, a rally against the movement held in Berlin only managed to attract a moderate number of attendees.
The attendance numbers at a mass rally against the rightwing movement "Alternative for Germany" (AfD) were lower than anticipated. The event, which was held in Berlin on September 3, managed to only attract 2,500 people, according to police sources. The organizers of the rally had expected around 10,000 demonstrators and said their count was 6,000 attendees.
The police said the event went peacefully - despite the fact that 1,100 policemen and women were on standby to ensure safety.
